I have known about RSS feeds since 2004. I remember exactly when because of the job I had just started that introduced them to me in the blog context.
The way I tend to get personal feeds is by receiving them directly into my personal email box. At work I have opted to create tabs on my browsers’ home pages and use the favourites facility. In one browser, the tabs link to the sites I use daily. In a second browser, I have created favourites tabs according to the classes I teach. Most of the links in those folders are used annually as I teach certain topics. Are these two methods the same as RSS feeds? I am not so sure. The one is push technology and the other is pull.
In addition, the ways I stay connected at work have their issues, if I need to update my computer which I have done twice since 2004, I have to create those folders again, and even though I have tried to save my favourites and transfer them to the new computer, I have never achieved that successfully. Consequently I have had to start all over again finding those precious web links. Having an online site like Feedly would ensure I don’t loose those links/feeds in the transfer of data.
So thanks for the info about online sites for RSS feeds, 23Research! I think I will have a go with Feedly.
