Bloglines

bloglines screenshotI’ve been using Bloglines since J-Walk first posted about it a year ago. It’s…

the most comprehensive, integrated service for searching, subscribing, publishing and sharing news feeds, blogs, and rich Web content. It’s free and easy-to-use.

And it is. I use it to easily scan other sites for material to post on Steel White Table. It monitors your subscribed sites for updates, allowing you to see what’s been updated when. How does it work?

Many online information sources, including web sites, weblogs and news services, now broadcast their content to the web in so-called “syndicated feeds” or “news feeds” with new technologies like Really Simple Syndication (RSS) and ATOM. News aggregator software and services collect those syndicated feeds and present them to end users in a variety of ways.

Bloglines monitors those feeds and let you know when they’ve been updated.

Steel White Table has two feeds: one for new content, and one for new comments. The links for both are also at the bottom of the menu on the right.
