It’s often said that given a list of internet bookmarks, you can tell everything about that person. Nowadays, I suspect the RSS feeds you are subscribed to are much more revealing. So what feeds am I subscribed to – as a geek, technologist, web developer and keen gamer?
So without further ado, here’s a list of just a few choice picks of the feeds that fill my reader everyday – providing me with all the news and inspiration I need to do my job.
SEO Bull$!t [Site|Feed]: Cutting through the elitist rubbish and debunking the theories that abound in SEO circles and so-called professionals. If you’re going to subscribe to any of these other SEO feeds, I highly recommend them *alongside* this one.
Smashing Magazine [Site|Feed]: Long form articles on anything design related, web technologies, or fontography. Also prone to releasing some fantastic free WordPress themes and the occasional icon or vector set.
Board Games with Scott [Site|Feed]: Now mostly dead since Scott moved on to other things, but the archives are still good to keep around with tons of informative and fantastic video reviews of awesome board games.

Intertube Records [Site|Feed]: Good for people like me who hate browsing that archive of bad videos they call YouTube – I only ever watch something if it’s picked up by inter tube records, or finds itself into my feed reader by way of Google+ contact.

Police Inspector Blog [| ]: The straight up truth from an anonymous high ranking officer in the MET Police (that means London). Fascinating insight, especially considering the recent riots.
The Art of Manliness [Site|Feed]: Attempting to reclaim that pride in what it means to be a man. It’s clearly hit a nerve with thousands of guys who feel that society has lost it’s way somehow, and the role of men has been diminished by political correctness over the years.
The Non-Consumer Advocate [Site|Feed]: A inspiring blog about a family that does their best to leave a low impact on the environment, by living a frugal yet rich life. If everyone lived like this, our environmental problems would disappear overnight, and the world would be a far happier and a more ‘green’ place.
That’s it from me, so I hope you found a few sites worth subscribing to yourself. It goes without saying that MakeUseOf also provides full RSS feeds for every section of the website, which you can find just down there in the footer. I also hope some of the other writers will follow suit and tell us all what they’re subscribed to.
