reBlog Blog

I use reBlog as by [tag]RSS reader[/tag]. There aren’t too many sites I keep track of, only like 20-25. I like it because it’s set up on bastone.org, so I don’t have to worry about something going wrong with the other sites out there, like Bloglines or Netvibes.

One of the functions you can is publish items that interest you to a blog. I’ve done just that, publishing the articles I like here. I’ve also played around with the WordPress plugin, and the layout is a bit clunky. That blog is here.

Do you use an RSS reader? If so, what do you use?

  1. Pageflakes definitely has a similar feel to Netvibes. I like Pageflakes because it has tabs at the top to help segregate the data. (On looking at Netvibes again, it has tabs to help separate a lot of feeds as well.)

    From what I can gather, there are two schools of thought when it comes to online RSS readers. The first one takes all the feeds and puts them in one list. Examples are like Google Reader, Bloglines, or reBlog. The second one displays a few articles from multiple sources on one page. Examples are the individualized Google homepage, my Yahoo homepage, Netvibes, or Pageflakes.

    I do like the latter method of looking at the info, but I find the interface to be a little slow. Perhaps it’s just my PC that is having some problems keeping up, but I would expect a fairly current machine to be able to render these pages without too many problems.
