An RSS feed is a computer parsable representation of a website or blog. In other words, the formatting is stripped from a website and just the meat of it is written to a feed. This makes it easier for computers to make sense of rich data to do things such as recommend news articles or create new content items for you.

How Do I Find My RSS Feed

Medium
Prepend 'feed' to your favorite author's Medium username in the URL. For example:

https://medium.com/feed/@rborn92
Or if you want to get the feed for a publication such as Hacker Noon, append 'feed' to their domain:

https://hackernoon.com/feed

Wordpress
Similarly, append 'feed' to blogs with custom domain names:

https://blog.cloudcampaign.io/feed

Squarespace
Open the Squarespace page you want the feed for and append '?format=rss' or manually enter the page slug:

http://sitename.squarespace.com/pageslug?format=rss

YouTube
Visit your YouTube channel and copy the Channel ID from the URL.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEJDM8c2lVEu1ItPSWeaL3A

Paste the channel ID into this link:

https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?channel_id=[CHANNEL_ID]

Tumblr
