RssFwd helps me stay current

Tony showed me a very cool way to stay current with blogs: RssFwd. Their tag line is “Reading RSS the way you are already reading your emails“ — they will take an RSS feed and email you when there are new posts to the blog.

I believe Tony uses this for all of his blog reading, but I use it only for the blogs I don’t want to miss, like ISEL Update, Our Future, and the FeelGoodLibrarian. These are low-traffic blogs, so I have been very pleased with knowing what’s going on immediately; the email is the full-text of the blog entry, with links to the original post.

Tony’s doing a presentation on blogs for UConn later this month, and I’ll be a guest presenter. Hopefully I’ll get even more cool blogging tips!
