Feed me! Feed me NOW!

I used to get overwhelmed by RSS feed-reading and declared bankruptcy almost every New Year. The trouble is, I’d just go and do the same again, building up my number of subscribed-to feeds to overwhelming levels: I just love being exposed to new ideas and perspectives!

Since I’ve been using Feedly, however, it provides a magazine-like front-end to Google Reader. This means I can merrily subscribe to as many feeds as I wish. It’s so much easier to manage. In fact…

I want more.

It’s a little-known fact that you can share lists of RSS feeds easily in a format called OPML. I want you to send me yours! I’ll collate them and share back the ├╝ber-OPML file. I can’t wait to read what you’re reading!

Win/win.

Here’s how to do it (assuming that everyone’s using Google Reader…):

  1. Sign in to Google Reader
  2. Click on Manage Subscriptions at the bottom-left of your screen
  3. Click on Import/Export
  4. Click the link Export your subscriptions as an OPML file and save the file somewhere you’ll remember
  5. Go to http://dropitto.me/dajbelshaw (password = opml) and upload your OPML file

  1. That’s scary. We’re going to need bigger brains.

  2. Just when I was getting used to Google Reader on my iPod Touch – regularly marking feeds as read when they became unmanageable – you inform me about Feedly. Thank you. I have just downloaded it from the App Store and what a difference. Much easier to review the blog and site feeds which I want to keep up with.

  3. You password doesn’t work anymore..have you finished this project?

  4. Oh…then maybe it did work! Good luck with it..if you received my contribution :-)
