Narrative IndustriesGlossary of Web Terms

Many people like to subscribe to a web site using an aggreator or newsreader so they can see  new articles from a range of places in one place without having to go to the site. If you provide a feed from your site, as practically all blogs, job listing and modern sites do, it’s likely to be in Atom or RSS format. Both are essentially variations of XML formats.
