I run a news site which also happens to be a Post Nuke site. Therefore I output all my news stories in RSS.
There are no other regional sites creating news feeds and I have had people ask me about syndicating BUT how can I advise somebody who is not technically profficient to use an RSS feed on their site?

If they're proficient enough to have their own site then you could probably send them over to someplace like HotScripts where they could find a pre-made tool to put your feed on their page.

Do a search for "feed2js" on Google. There's a edu site (Maricopa) that offers free code you can place on your site to allow users to convert your RSS to Javascript. They can then cut and paste the javascript code into their pages.

You can create your own tutorial on how users can use your tool OR you can send your visitors to this edu site - they'll host the code for you.

To allow a non-techie webmaster to incorporate your feeds to their site.
