    Can someone explain step by step instructions to me on adding RSS to my WordPress blog. I am confused. The second part is understanding how to incorporate Feedburner. Is the feedburner URL the same as my Blog URL?

    You don´t need Feedburner.
    http://www.YOURDOMAIN/feed is the address of your feed.

    Evita,
    You mean my feed address is http://youcanbuycashflowrealestate.com/feed?

    If correct, when I submit my Blog Feed address to Blog Directories then I submit the address above?

    Evita,
    When I type http://youcanbuycashflowrealestate.com/feed? I get an error message saying, web page can not be found. I am a NEW Internet Marketer so all of these terminologies are overwhelming to me.

    Do you want to add the RSS of some website or blog to your blog? Or you want to create a URL of your own RSS blog?

    See, if you want to follow some blog and want to add its RSS to your blog, then you can use this plugin:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/feedlist/

    And, if you want to create a URL so that other people can follow your blog, then you have to use the RSS provided by the wordpress:

    http://youcanbuycashflowrealestate.com/?feed=rss2

    Ryan,

    I typed in the http://youcanbuycashflowrealestate.com//feed=rss2 and it worked. Is this the address I submit to RSS feed directories?

    Thank You

    Your feed should work with
    http://youcanbuycashflowrealestate.com/feed (without "?") and with
    http://youcanbuycashflowrealestate.com/?feed=rss2

    But there must be a mistake in your permalink-settings and/or your templates. I was on your blog and none of your internal links does work.

    This
    http://youcanbuycashflowrealestate.com/%postname.php%/
    is one of your links, copied from your source text. That´s not right.
    So I downloaded your theme, but I can´t find a mistake in it. Did you changed something in your template file showposts.php?

    If not, check your permalink settings.

    Yes, both the links, provided by me and Evita should work. Anyways, you can use the one which is working now.

    Good answer Evita, thanks :)

    If you are talking about how to display an RSS feed on your blog here is a great tutorial that does not require any widgets or plugins - it works using components of wordpress' core
