Tips for Faster RSS Browsing with Google Reader
For blog post ideas I’ll subscribe to one of the WordPress tag RSS feeds. I don’t read them everyday, so sometimes the feed list will be a couple hundred, many of them foreign language or photo blogs.
Here’s a tip for buzzing through them in a hurry.
Launch Pandora.com to play in the background, then put on some energy techno electronic industrial trip hop music.
Using Google ™ feed, you can use the “J” key to tap to the beat of the music.
You can easily do hit 100 in a a couple minutes.
Here are blogs titles that I blow by in a nanosecond:
- Foreign Language
- Sorry I Haven’t Blogged
- My New Blog
- Why I Chose WordPress
Every nanosecond saved by buzzing by those blogs can add up to where I actually might spend a full second on a post before “starring it” for possible use or moving on.
If you need some help choosing your music, here ya go:
- October’s Child
- Playing With Yen
- I Will Survive
- Give Up The Funk
That should give you enough beat to go through about 500 posts in 10 minutes. Now you know how I get
such high quality ideas.
I was so psyched to hear about Pandora soof course i immediately logged on. This is my message (1st para. )
Dear Pandora Visitor,
“We are deeply, deeply sorry to say that due to licensing constraints, we can no longer allow access to Pandora for listeners located outside of the U.S. We will continue to work diligently to realize the vision of a truly global Pandora, but for the time being we are required to restrict its use. We are very sad to have to do this, but there is no other alternative. ”
Such a bummer! They sound so sincere, too.
I’ll have to wait until I’m back in the states for the tunes. To rock on, or whatever.
@Polly: yes, this has been making the tech rounds that Pandora isn’t welcome outside U.S. I thought they had reached an agreement with U.K. so hope Frances comes soon. I’m sorry too. It is very cool.
Well thank god you aren’t blowing through mine.
I do think the above is funny though!
