I have a bit of slack at work today and thought of blogging about this nifty site I just found as I was surfing the internet last night. Have you heard of Bloglines.com? Out of curiosity, I clicked on the link that I found on Yahoo and worked with it for a while.
So what does it do for me? Let’s just say it keeps me informed of which blogs have updates. It’s not another email notifier, no, no, no, alerts are not via emails (unless you prefer to have it sent to you). I’d hate that. Don’t you?
How does it work? You only need to register and create your own feeds that you would like to subscribe to, in my case, my favorite blog links. Believe me it’s painless. All I have to do is login. And during breaks, in between paperwork or when the eyelids get droopy and ready to shut, I just refresh the site. Voila! It shows me if any of my feeds/links have just been updated and off I go to read.
It saves me the trouble of aimlessly checking out my fave sites by clicking all the links and opening them in different windows until the desktop or laptop seems to choke. I only click on those that have updates and pace myself. I know there are other similar tools, aggregator or what-have-you out there, but this is the only one I’ve tried, and fortunately grown to like. Quite clever…
Enough of my yapping already! Go check it out.
