I’ve recently (as in Thursday / Friday) added staff blogs for KilkennyMusic.com (Mine, Alan Dawson, Ross Costigan, Michael Keogh) driven by WordPress MU and needed a quick and easy way to combine RSS feeds from all blogs (all using FeedBurner) and port them to the homepage and each of the individual pages on KilkennyMusic.com.
If you’re looking for a quick way to combine a load of RSS feeds into one single publicly accessible RSS feed (whether RSS / Atom / RDF) you could do worse than try FeedBlender.
FeedBlendr will grab all the feeds you enter and blend them up into a nice, thick, ‘river of news’ smoothie. You’ll get a URL where you can subscribe to everything all at once.
All you’ve to do is enter the feeds on the homepage, add as many as you need, give it a title and presto – all your feeds rolled into one to do with whatever you want. Certainly gets my thumbs up anyway.
Ken, have you tried the Yahoo! Pipes service yet? From what I’m hearing it really makes blending feeds a doddle. I haven’t had an opportunity to play with it yet, but I’m intrigued…
Gerard, to be honest I hadn’t even thought of Pipes but you on your comment, I’ve given it a run and it took me all of about a minute between logging in, dragging a few boxes around and there you go – four combined RSS feeds 🙂
Looking forward to having a good play with it when I get some more time!
