I left a comment on Dave’s blog about RSS feeds and I thought I would just record it here too as I have meaning to write about it anyway…
Hi Dave – thanks for the comments. I use bloglines too (Leigh told me about it last year) and although it was a slow start getting used to using it – as long as I open it up when i get on my computer it is easy to fit into my working environment. My partner however has discovered google reader, which is part of google’s takeover bid. If you are a gmail user you can set up your gmail account to show both your e-mails and rss feeds in one screen, which cuts down an all your open tabs. He also uses the google toolbar to keep a track of his favourites which works more like your browser toolbar for availability than say del.icio.us which requires that you have to visit another website everytime you want to bookmark something. Its plus is that it is available anywhere you sign in to your gmail account if your browser allows it. I’m planning on giving it a try myself if time allows…Anyway, I should blog this info myself, but i thought i would say Hi. Cheers, Rachel (www.flexiblelearningrach.wordpress.com)
Also – now that google own bloglines anyway i think there is an option to connect to them through gmail too – i’ll try and find out all the answers to these questions and more!
*Please note: Google DOES NOT own Bloglines as stated previously in this post. (I do think there is a way to read it through your gmail though – i’ll update you on that…..if i can! Confused becasue I sign in with my gmail account….) I apologise for any confusion or misleading that this may have caused.
