For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.

To provide a little more information for those new to syndication: Don't click the RSS icon (which points your browser to that URL), right-click it. If your browser has a feed reader add-in/plugin, you might get a "subscribe to" option on the right-click menu. Otherwise, copy the URL. In your feed reader, do whatever you do to add a new feed, pasting in the copied URL as the feed address.
BTW, if you're using Outlook, it has a feed reader built in. In Outlook 2010, your mailbox should contain an RSS Feeds folder. Right-click it and select Add New RSS Feed. In the dialog, paste the copied URL and click Add.
