…done. Finally got around to doing some of the long pending re-organization of my LJ. Have realized I don’t quite use my RSS reader, so I have decided to re-create the RSS reader as best as I can on LJ itself.
Created Custom Groups based on my interests. Subscribed to a few non LJ feeds already available on LJ, and thanks to my paid account benefits, created a few new non LJ feeds. Moved subscriptions to the appropriate custom groups. Set up the views on the home page. And so, much of the dirty work is done.
But I need to find some good feeds for the new views I have created. Am not too happy with the ones I have currently.
Technology Feeds: Currently, just a couple there, one of which is GigaOm. Om Malik is even more prolific than Rajesh Jain. If I were to put both of them on my “Technology Feeds” group, that would be the end of my Technology Feeds view!! For now, I have given the benefit of doubt to Om.
Blogger Feeds:Again, just a couple here. I am specifically looking at “topical” bloggers here, not general bloggers. Can’t think of any right now. I need to find some “topical bloggers” to populate my “Blogger Feeds” view.
Economics Feeds:Again, not much here.
I guess, I will probably add a couple of more categories in some time. Only thing is, I am going to end up losing all this once my paid account subscription expires :-(. Let me see, maybe if I find that this re-ordering works for me, I might just end up paying for 6 more months.
One important request: I suppose many of you folks already know the kind of stuff I dig, would therefore appreciate your suggestions for feeds to incorporate in my views. But please don’t recommend folks who blogs 3 times a day. Those like me, that is 🙂
update: Created a bloglines account. So my feed’s going to be available there too. Wondering if I should just move lock, stock and barrel to bloglines. Let’s see…
