rssfwd.com - turn RSS feeds into email

Posted by ClifNotes, Nov 2008, permalink E-mail Notification Web Service


Do you know what an RSS feed is? An RSS feed is usually a notification of a change to a website. It can include a portion of the page or an entire article. You need a "Feed Reader" to use RSS feeds. I use Google Reader because I don't have to install it and I can use any web browser to access my list of feeds.


Sometimes, I find that I'd rather be notified of a change to a website in email. So how do I change an RSS feed into an email? I used to use a service called SendMeRSS. It's gone now and I've had to start using a new service. It's called Rssfwd.com.


It's easy to use and you don't need a feed reader.
