    I consider myself smarter than the average person but I've had a hard time understanding RSS and Feeds. Some of it may be because feedburner seems to suck.

    Can someone direct me to a tutorial where all of this stuff can be explained on a 3rd grade level?

    Also, can someone tell me the pros and cons of aggregators, which ones to use, etc. ??

    Thanks in advance for your patience.

    RSS feeds grab content from other blogs or feeds and place them on your blog. In this process, you may not get full articles as some come with bits and pieces of articles. In this case, if you want full articles from feed you can use yahoo pipeline.

    There are guides all over here but I recommend buying Kingbred's Autoblog Book for the basics on RSS feeds and way more.

    Edit: I see someone already answered the question. Btw, use FeedWordpress + wp-o-matic. ;)
