If you haven’t found Bloglines yet, you REALLY need to check it out. If you’re like me you’re taking a look at a number of websites and blogs every day. Maybe you have them bookmarked as favorites. I hope you have mine bookmarked! But let me help you make it easier to do what you’re already doing.
Question: How can Bloglines help you? It is a great tool that allows you to check all of the blogs you’re reading in one place. On this one site you can subscribe to the RSS feed of the blogs you’re reading and it will list them right there. That’s big, but there’s an even better feature. Bloglines shows in a single glance whether there are new posts on the sites you’re checking. That is really big!
Assignment: Go to Bloglines and sign up. It’s a free service. Once you’ve signed up, subscribe to my feed! How do you do that? It’s simple.
- Click on "my feeds" right there on Bloglines
- Click "add"
- See where it says Subscribe? Copy and paste this URL into the box: http://feeds.feedburner.com/CommentaryFromTheEdge
- That’s all there is to it.
What do you do next? Add Bloglines to your favorites and get into the pattern of checking it. And relax!
