Want to access small business news and information that's important to you, without browsing or searching for information? Sign up for these free updates from the SBA.
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It's an easy way for you to keep up with news and information that's important to you, and helps you avoid the conventional methods of browsing or searching for information on websites. By using RSS, the content you want can be delivered directly to you without cluttering your inbox with e-mail messages. This content is called a 'feed.'
Many websites offer feeds, or 'syndication', including blogs, news sites, job boards, and so on. You can-rea- these feeds by setting up your browser to be a reader; by using websites like Yahoo and Google to serve as a reader, or by using your PDA or a dedicated software reader.
RSS Feeds for Small Business Owners
The SB's The Office of Advocacy works to reduce the burdens that federal policies impose on small firms and maximize the benefits small businesses receive from the government. By signing up for the Office of Advocacy RSS feeds, yo'll receive periodic updates on several topics, including
the small business economic climate; including quarterly and overall economic trends for small business owners
research and analysis on proposed legislation; on topics such as the impact of an OSHA regulation on small businesses and the impact of electronic records programs on healthcare providers
You can also use a feed reader to follow blogs in the Business.gov Community. Just click inside the blog you'd like to follow, and select'Article Options > Subscribe to RSS Fee' command on the blog page. Follow the instructions from your feed reader of choice on how to import the feed. This allows you to watch several feeds from one location. You can also follow Business.gov's Twitter feed*.
If you prefer to receive email subscriptions instead of RSS fields, you can still access the same information, but through your inbox.
