Reading blogs and RSS feeds (GameProducer.net RSS feed can be found here – just to remind you) can take a lot of time, and I’m going to share my way on how to read RSS feeds efficiently. This tip is really just for those who subscribe to several RSS feeds and need to figure out the best way to read them. Naturally one can continue reading feeds or visiting sites, but I think there are fast way to find out what needs to be read or not.
These tips are for Mozilla Firefox, but I suppose other Internet browsers and RSS readers can do similar things. The steps are quite simple. I’ve tried to find a fast and easy way to read RSS feeds – and tried numerous RSS readers – and this is so far the nicest solution for me (and it works in browser so I don’t need to install anything new, or launch any new programs when I want to read RSS – I can simply use the browser.)
- The first step is quite simple: pick the RSS feeds you really are interested in. This is quite basic step – and really doesn’t require much. Those who are new to RSS feeds: basically it means that you click an image (that might look something like this: ) and you can subscribe to the feed. Subscribing to a feed means that you can read the site content using some RSS reader.
- The second step is: put the RSS feed / live bookmark in a folder. You can create folder in Firefox from “Bookmarks” > “Organize bookmarks” and then by choosing “File” > “New Folder”. You can name the new folder like “RSS” and you should put it under the “toolbar bookmarks”. You should always add new feeds to this RSS folder.
- After you’ve completed the second step you can quite easily browse the interesting feeds and read the topics you are interested in. If you did it properly, you should have a folder that’s easy to check out for latest news and articles.
Here’s a picture to show you how it should look like:
I’ve found this type of RSS reading to be quite efficient – and easy to use.
