Still looking for a replacement for the now dead Google Reader? I had earlier this summer recommended Netvibes (through a three part post on this blog: one, two, three), but now have something better to recommend. Read on!
Two weeks ago I started this 3-part series about Google Reader’s imminent closure with how an RSS reader allows me to plow through large volumes of news articles and blog posts, as I categorize them into topics relevant to me. I continued last week with how I actually get through all my reading material daily and share what’s important.
Last week I started my 3-part series on how Google Reader’s imminent closure is forcing me out of my comfort zone, to re-evaluate what I do with it and what is available out there (hint: nothing impressive) so I don’t get caught with my shorts down come July 1st. I started outlining last week how an RSS reader allows me to plow through large volumes of news articles and blog posts, as I categorize them into topics relevant to me.
I know there are many other RSS readers out there, but NONE come close to Google Reader quite unfortunately. This means I don’t just needs to switch to a different reader and adjust to a different layout, but that I need to find alternatives for a number of different uses I got out of it while saving tremendous amounts of time.
Like me, you’re probably on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn (probably more). How do you keep up with everything without wasting your time? How do I do it? First, I unsubscribed from every newsletter I received, created alerts for mention of keywords relevant to me and converted all my newsletters into RSS (see the rest here). Second, I’d like to make sure you understand the concept of your home base, input and outposts (see the rest here). Third, what’s SEO got to do with this?
