A news aggregator, such as Feed ReaderThis link opens a new window. or Google Reader This link opens a new window., allows you to subscribe to the RSS feeds from various sites and displays them for you to read.

Once you have your news aggregator, it is a matter of finding sites that syndicate content and adding their RSS feed to the list of feeds. Your reader will automatically update whenever one of your subscribed websites or blogs updates content on their site.
