I've added a bunch of edu-blogs to the blogroll on the side.
Go check them out.
They've all withstood the test of time, i.e., I am tired of googling them every time I want to read them.
I stubbornly refuse to adopt modern technology and use a real feed reader.
I find www.bloglines.com is good, and isn't as invasive as installing a reader.
It's Liz from I Speak of Dreams.
Simple instructions on setting up feeds in Bloglines.
in the URL line of your favorite browser. Click on the link that invites you to register, which will take you to this page
Fill in the blank fields. Bloglines will send you a confirming registration email.
You then have a bloglines account, which you may populate with your favorite blogs.
This too is simple. Once you are in bloglines, follow the links to
Home > Help > Bloglines Subscribe Button
and follow the instructions to add the bloglines subscribe button to your browser toolbar.
As you are reading a favorite blog, click on the link to subscribe. The link will take you away from the blog to the bloglines subscription page. Click a few radio buttons and there you go, or Bob's your uncle.
I've become a big fan of Google Reader in the couple of months I've been using it. Very simple, nice visual interface, very easy to add and manage feeds. I was a longtime Bloglines user before I switched and I do like Google Reader better. Check it out.
Google Reader Rocks!
Spoken by someone who is a googol yrs old so it must be easy...
Olmost immediately after I wrote this post I remounced my luddite ways and set up bloglines. Now I'm going to set up google reader and make them duke it out to the death.
Thanks for the tips.
I use my blogroll on my blog for frequent reads, and bookmarks (or Google Desktop) for things I want to refer to later. I don't want to use an external server like bloglines because that's one more server to go down, and I certainly don't want rss sending me more email.
I for one still do not know what a real-whatever feeder is.
Sad to say.
ok, I have a bloglines whatever
thanks for the instructions Liz!
I don't want to get all Sally Fields' on you by gushing, but let me just say that I'm honored. While I may not agree with everything you write, I respect you a lot :)
