At the weekend I did something I’ve been threatening to do for a long time – move all my RSS feeds (live bookmarks) from my Firefox bookmark toolbar into Google Reader.
Now, I don’t know whats going on in the world.
Or if I do I’m about three days behind in the times.
I figure Google Reader is a safe bet for me hopping between four computers daily with different feeds sitting on each toolbar – log in with your gMail address, fire in your feeds and start reading. If you haven’t already tried it I suggest giving it a go (Google Reader that is). The hard part for me at this point is keeping up. During the day I would flick through ALL the feeds on the toolbar to see what the recent headlines were – something new, I’d jump in or if it didn’t grab my attention I’d skip it. But I’m a toolbar RSS addict – I’d do this one thing countless times during the day, a process that might take me all of 30 seconds but nevertheless a big distraction. So, I put myself on the RSS diet.
Four machines, four fresh looking Firefox toolbars, not a hint of a live bookmark in sight.
Of course if I miss checking in on feeds in the evening (as has happened twice this week) you wind up with someone going “Did you see what X blogger is after doing… Jesus….”.
No, I didn’t.
