Subject: Re: [APG] Which RSS aggregator do you use?

I use Bloglines, which I love. One of the things I love about it, is that Firefox version 2 includes a "subscribe" button which allows me to add a feed directly to my Bloglines account while staying in my main browser window. Bloglines is free.

I use several methods to receive genealogy blog entries when they are
posted. I've done this mostly for comparison, and to be able to advise my
readers when they run into challenges. This list is in my order of
OUTLOOK 2007 - an integrated folder, where one adds the RSS feed code, and
items are "brought into" the folder every time Outlook looks for new
content. In my case, Outlook is set to refresh every 5 minutes.
FEEDBLITZ - I use this free service to send blog entries to my email "in
box" every 24 hours. This is similar to a RootsWeb read-only mailing list in
digest mode. I have paid a small annual fee to have entries from certain
blogs sent to me as they occur.
SHARP READER - free software for Windows compatible computers, that when
opened refreshes the last 2 weeks of entries from my list of subscribed
blogs. I don't like that older items scroll off the list.
GOOGLE ALERT - (not really an RSS feed reader) I have set one for each of
the following words. In this manner I find out about postings from blogs to
which I do not subscribe:
Geneology (note the spelling here)
I do NOT recommend using the "RSS Gadget" designed for the new Windows Vista
desktop, as blog entries arrive there too late.
Happy family tree climbing!
Your friend in genealogy.
