Subscribing to this blog's site feed

Firstly, my apologies for taking so longing posting again and getting things happening with the CLC. I've been busy with other projects, and wow! - how time flies!

An important part of the process of forming and becoming part of distributed, informal Personal Learning Networks is subscribing to the RSS feeds of blogs and other sources of information.

So to keep up-to-date with CLC news, announcements, developments and tips subscribe to this blog's site feed - http://clcommunity.blogspot.com/atom.xml.

(Note that it's actually an Atom feed - a protocol similar to RSS).

I've added the site feed to the template. (I'll explain how to add content to a blog's template at a later date.)

If you don't have a news reader you can check out this tutorial I've added to the wiki - RSS Feeds & Newsreaders. It points to an extensive list of news aggregators.

A lot of educators use Bloglines - it's web-based and lets you share your feeds publically.

Which news reader are you using? Leave a comment and share with us why you made that choice and how you find it. Do you have any other recommendations?

If you aren't ready to adopt a news reader yet, you can also subscribe to RSS feeds via email. A list of email-based services is available in the extensive list of news aggregators.

Please feel free to add to the wiki any links to tutorials and guidelines that can help with an understanding of what RSS is, how to subscribe to RSS feeds and types of RSS readers.

A good resource for learning more about RSS and news readers is 50+ RSS Ideas for Educators.

And remember - if you bookmark any relevant resources in del.icio.us tag them with 'clcommunity'.

I use BlogLines as my newsreader because it is web-based and I can use it on any computer. I find it easy to add and drop a newsfeed. I can share the newsfeeds I read - see http://www.bloglines.com/public/lecornu
I have tried some others but I keep coming back to Bloglines.

Same. Bloglines has remained reliable for me and this is why Robyn and I have chosen to install this as a dynamic feed > to link distributor in the http://www.nswlearnscope.com blog.

Some great links here Sean - thanks.

I have a Bloglines account, but this is where I collect blogs and RSS feeds of note, rather than read them. I also use it for demonstration purposes.

I actually use the built-in reader that comes with Thunderbird, the free, open source email client made by Mozilla, who are responsible for Firefox. It's pretty basic, but I like getting my RSS feeds in the same program as my emails.

I use it to read a few select blogs, and to keep an eye on changes that are occuring in the Wikispaces I am involved in.

It's also worth noting for anyone thinking of using Elgg as their online presence that it has a news reader built in.
