I have been using feedreaders for a while, switching from Bloglines (service discontinued) to Netvibes a few months ago. As Thing 4 calls for setting up a feedreader, I had a closer look at the settings and options in Netvibes.
- I went through my RSS subscriptions, checked them for continued availability, deleted a bunch.
- I added
– a few tabs collecting everything for this course under “CPD23”,
– a few suggested blogs from Thing 4 and
– the bundle of all the CPD23 blogs.
- I added the wigdets for the Bremen weather and Twitter, put the latter in the Livebar (so far, I didn’t know it exists).
I like Netvibes for following RSS feeds – it is concise, clearly presented and everything is in one place.
