Say, you got 15 such sites. You have to visit 15 blogs daily to see whether they have published a new article. Which is very time wasting and boring if you discover nothing interesting from most of them.

The solutions is RSS reader! Oooops what the hell it is? Don't worry, its very simple to use.
Someone said, if we knew the pleasure of destination, a difficult journey becomes very easy. After you have configured the RSS reader, you will use RSS reader to subscribe to different sites/blogs, its only 6-8 seconds task. But as result, it pulls all new articles from that blog and shows you their titles at one page. From where you can read any articles. Assume how easy the life would be if you get 100 articles on different sites at one page.
