About RSS feeds
Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is an easy and free way to get the information you want whenever it is updated, even if you are not on the VBgov.com Web site. Want up-to-the-minute news, events, or hot topics? You choose what you want to track and how often you want to be updated.
To use RSS, you'll need to use a RSS reader — a program that provides a real-time interface to the feeds you select or a web browser that is capable of reading RSS feed. RSS readers come in all sizes and shapes. Many are Web-based; some send headlines to your e-mail or cell phone. Two examples are Windows Live and Bloglines, but VBgov.com's RSS feeds should work with any reader using the standard XML-based format.

If your RSS reader is one of the four you see below, simply click on the image to subscribe to the associated feed. If you don't see the name of your service, right-click on the orange "RSS" button and select "copy shortcut" or "copy link location." (Using a Mac? Click and hold or control-click instead of right-clicking.) Go to your rss reader of choice, paste the link into the relevant spot and you're set. You may also left-click on the RSS button and if your browser can read the RSS you can subscribe to the feed via your browser.
