Use RSS Feed to Access web Content

Many blogs, news sites, sports and other websites whose content changes quite regularly will make something known as an RSS feed available to users. An RSS feed is a subscription to a website through which users can automatically access any updated or new content that may be available. RSS feeds can be read using RSS readers or aggregators like Google Reader

There have been many occasions in the past where your network providor has blocked access to a blog or newspaper or media house that is deemed to be controversial. In such a case, if you try using your browser to connect to the controversial website, then you will be denied access. However, if you want to continue to access the content on the blocked website, then it may be possible for you to subscribe to the RSS feed of that website using any popular RSS aggregator. 

Usually the network administrator would only block direct access to a website, but it may not be possible for them to block access to the RSS feed of a website without blocking the complete RSS Aggregator. 

For example suppose you need to visit absolutestuffs which is blocked by your network administrator, then all you need to do this 

Step 1: Sign in to your google account and open Google Reader 

Step 2: Search for the website you want to access (here i'm searching absolutestuffs)
step 3: Now google reader allows you to access all the content from that website
