RSS for Dummies

Syndicating Web Sites with RSS Feeds For Dummies  (For Dummies (Business & Personal Finance)) I was a paid tech reviewer on Ellen Finkelstein‘s forthcoming RSS For Dummies book. The listing just showed up on Amazon and the book is now available for pre-order, for shipment in late March.

The book is chock-full of useful content! It is not just for ‘dummies’ and it is not solely for beginners. Intermediate and advanced producers and consumers of RSS are going to enjoy and find some valuable information in this book. There is great info on blogging, data formats, hosting, podcasting, and much, much more.

I really enjoy the tech review process, and I would be happy to entertain offers to do more such reviews. I enjoy reading and providing quality feedback to authors, and I also like the chance to be a bit ahead of the curve by reading new material before it is available to the general public. I have also done tech review for Amazon Hacks, for Google, Amazon, and Beyond, and for Mining Amazon Web Services.

I wrote a separate blog entry on the subject of tech reviewing.
