Have had a number of people ask me for a reading list of what websites I regularly read and check so I have started building a Reading List page on imjustcreative.
The winners of the 10 Feedly iPhone App’s giveaway ‘Feedly iPhone App Launch Giveaway’ are as follows’:
With the run up to Christmas I will be doing a few mini giveaways, the first one being a number of copies of the Feedly iPhone app by DevHD.
Found this site a few weeks back, but only just recently started playing with it. Spectives collects RSS feeds and presents the data in a visual thumbnail way. So rather than bucket loads of text, it shows the main image of each RSS feed.
Toluu a service that is fast growing on me. And the important thing is that it will really shine the more people come on board, as there will be a richer store of feeds to measure and match from, thus you will benefit from discovering further feeds based on your own likes.
A quick summary to help you understand what the blazes I’m talking about. Simply, how to enable Feedburner to give Email subscriptions as well as just RSS that have to be read through a reader.
