News you want — delivered to you

People reading this blog may know all about RSS already, but if you don’t, Mark Glaser at Media Shift has posted a very clear explanation of how to set up your own personal news feed. It’s not overly technical, and he provides good links too.

Even if you don’t read a lot of blogs, you might like using an RSS reader for headlines from traditional news sources. For example, I get New York Times Technology headlines in my RSS reader. See all available New York Times feeds here.

Another tip: Why not use Technorati’s blog finder to discover blogs in a topic area that interests you? Try photojournalism or graphic design — or online journalism, for example. Check out the blog, and if you like it, add it to your feeds. It’s much more efficient than bookmarking.
