RSS: Hot Off the Digital Press!

I gave Bloglines a try today. I've seen the orange RSS thingie all over the place for quite some time. But it's only now that I understand what a useful service this could be for me. I have yet to sign up for the "at least 10 newsfeeds", as directed by our Learning 2.0 assignment, but I am working on it! I am enthralled by the HBO drama Deadwood, so the first thing I signed up for was the Save Deadwood feed. I also signed up for some political feeds and a couple movie related ones. I have many other interests, too, so it shouldn't be too difficult to reach the magic number 10.

If you are a bit of an information junkie (which I assume many of us in this profession to be) :-), then you will probably appreciate what Bloglines can do for you. Go ahead and put it to work...and have fun!

"Hot off the press" in the old Deadwood days...
