Some Great RSS Feeds To Add To Your Reader
On reflection, it is not so easy to give lists of “best RSS feeds” as everyone’s interests vary and so what might be useful and interesting to me may not be in any way interesting to you. However, since you are reading an internet blog, I will assume you are into all things internet / technology so here are some RSS feeds from my Reader that might be good to add to your RSS reader.
Each link below will take you directly to the RSS feed or to the page containing the feeds. Most feeds are internet-related but there are also a few non-internet related ones thrown in there too.
MakeUseOf.com – of course! Where else will you get your fix of MakeUseOf?
– my own blog (hey, a bit of self-promotion isn’t all that bad!)
Del.icio.us Hotlist – this one was recommended to me by Aibek. It gives you the websites that are getting the most bookmarks on del.icio.us at the moment. Good for finding hot new URL’s and web services.
Digital Inspiration – Software, internet and technology guide.
Giveaway Of The Day – a website that gives away paid software (with the company’s blessing) for a period of 24 hours. Sometimes you pick up some real gems.
Jumbo Joke – provides some great humour to brighten up my day.
Google Earth blog – not officially affiliated with Google. I love this blog because it provides Google Earth KMZ files of buildings and other models to load in Google Earth. It also informs you of GE updates and upcoming new features.
Lifehacker – a productivity blog where I spend an inordinate amount of my day. Lots of computer / internet tips on how to be more productive. Quite often, the user comments are more educational and amusing than the actual Lifehacker article! Several MakeUseOf articles have been mentioned on Lifehacker.
Mashable – a blog concentrating on news and features from social networking websites. I particularly like the huge lists that Mashable has produced such as the webhosting toolbox and 5000 resources to do anything online.
Obscure Store and Reading Room – read and comment on the craziest stories in the media at the moment. Includes a VERY lively community.
Ogle Earth – another Google Earth-type blog with KMZ files to download.
Quick Online Tips – as the name implies, lots of useful internet tips.
Read / Write / Web – another internet news blog – this one, in my opinion, a little more in-depth and “techie”.
Search Engine Journal – a must-have if you are interested in search engine optimisation, tactics, tips and general industry news.
SketchUp Buildings – a blog showcasing the best Google Sketchup buildings which you can then download to Google Earth.
Skype Journal – industry news for Skype and VOIP. The blog author, Phil Wolff, is a really nice guy.
How-To Geek – computer / tech advice.
The Smoking Gun – want to see OJ Simpson’s latest mug-shot? Or the documents that no-one wants you to see? Thanks to the US Freedom of Information Act, the Smoking Gun has dug up the dirt on the rich and famous.
Web Worker Daily – a blog for people who work solely on the web. Full of really useful tips.
another one also recommended to me by Aibek. See the latest hot sites on StumbleUpon.
Persistent.info – a blog written by a Google employee called Mihai Parparita. He doesn’t update the blog often but when he does, it is often a new script for a Google product that he wrote himself. Some of the best Gmail features in Lifehacker’s “Better Gmail” are Mihai’s such as conversation bubbles and coloured tabs.
Lifehack – Daily digest and pointers on productivity, getting things done and lifehacks.
