Using RSS to Keep Up October 14, 2019

An important way that I stay up on top of news that is important to me is through RSS feeds. RSS is old school tech that has been around since 1999. It’s an open standard that almost every blog and news site supports. I subscribe to a variety of professional news outlets, blog aggregators and individual bloggers.

There are a bunch of different RSS feed readers out there. Two of the big ones I’ve used are Newsblur and Feedly. They both let you browse sources to follow or add your own. I currently pay for Newsblur which though not as pretty as Feedly is more functional for my use case.

I group the blogs I follow by category. The main categories I have are:
