RSS: Regular Society Shuns

rssI just read a nice little write up about who's using what for RSS. RSS has indeed become a key part of my daily routine. I use the Sage add-on for Firefox to manage my feeds and I check them a few times a day. What irks me now are the few sites I monitor that don't have a feed. I'm far less likely to read their content as regularly.

When I chat with others about RSS, I'm always surprised at the typical response. Most don't have a clue what it is. Some have heard of it, but don't get it. Those who do subscribe to RSS feeds are few and far between and true believers in the Web 2.0 revolution. Regular society has shunned the standard.

Thankfully, there are enough of us relying on RSS that just about every blog and news site makes a feed available. When I discover an interesting blog that appeals to me, the first thing I do is add the entry feed. If there isn't one, I'll only bookmark the page if it's Sidra spectacular.

I want to know if you're an RSS adopter. If you are, what do you use to check your feeds? If you've shunned the format up to now, I'd like to know why.

This is the day you pop your comment cherry. If a discussion about RSS doesn't get you hot, nothing will.

I used to use RSSFWD.com, just because it took your every day RSS feeds and stuck 'em in an email, which I check almost as frequently as I now check my RSS feeds. Now, though, it's Bloglines for me. Firefox's feed plugin's a good idea, but if I'm somewhere that doesn't ise Firefox (see: employment, place of), then I still want my fix of feed.
