Google News & RSS

As you might know by now, I’m a bit of an RSS addict. Only a few sites that I subscribe to are traditional news sites, though. NYT, Washington Post, Gainesville Sun (I keep hoping they’ll fix their RSS feed, since I notified one of their employees), New Scientist, National Geographic, and CNET.

My other main source of news is Google Personalized News. I’ve created perpetual searches for topics I’m interested in (blogs, journalism, multimedia, etc.) Then I combine that personalization power with RSS. Yep, Google News has RSS. So articles on the usual business, world, U.S. stuff, plus my personalized searches, come hopping into my Google Reader to make sure I know what’s going on, from as many sources as I want. Awesome.

You can even share your personalized news with others. Here’s mine.

    As an rss junkie like myself, I’d be interested in getting your feedback on feedmashr.com which takes another approach to the rss feed mix application. It mashes the daily popular rss feeds from the popular social bookmarking sites, and others, but also lets you toggle back in time to see hot links that you may have missed.

  • I really haven’t looked at that. I get the Digg feed, and I sometimes wonder how a lot of “popular” items got so high. So I haven’t looked into getting more random “popular” feeds when I already have 100 subscriptions to read every day.
