If you want to get all the recent blog posts, updates on competitions and discounts you will need to subscribe to the RSS feed.

RSS stands for Real Simple Syndication. It is a service which provides you the benefit of not having to visit the site to read the content. The way I like to look at it is kind of like a newsletter, or a magazine subscription only as each article comes out, one at a time. Only difference is that it does not just have to be content and pictures, it is also music, video or any other digital media! To receive the feeds you need to select a feed reader (I like Google reader) after clicking the RSS button.

If you want to learn more about RSS visit one of my friends posts at entrepreneurs-journey.com.

The History of Prom Mafia

Since its launch in early 2009, Prom Mafia has established itself as a leader in the online teen fashion industry. The founder of the site is Jen Benz. She loved providing budget fashion tips for those with big student loans.

The site had some major transformations when Philip Shapiro took over the site and put his mark on it from early in 2012. Unfortunately, he was unable to embrace the fashion industry as Jen was able to. Because of this he decided to gift the site to someone who would bring Prom Mafia’s former flair back!

Who am I?
