Except for the missing </link> tag, you've written a valid RSS file. Save it with the extension .xml or .rss, upload it to your website like you would an html page, and you have an RSS file. Put a link to it on your site, and someone else can access it.

You need to think about what you actually want the RSS for: if it is to let friends keep up to date with your latest content, you need to find a way to let them know about it, and then they can subscribe. You'll want to keep the RSS file updated regularly with new links to your website.

If you want to use RSS content on your website, I'd recommend checking out feedroll <snip> which makes it very easy.

Maybe you could check out this explanation/history of RSS here [xml.com]. Then decide what you want to do with RSS whether it be publish your own feed or take other feeds to put content on your site(s). If you want to publish feeds, I would suggest the workshop/tutorial here [rssgov.com].

To find RSS feeds for your site, there are many feed directories and you will find links to them in this forum.

If you need any other help, please post again.
