#8 - RSS feeds and readers

Okay, I joined

(and aren't you just so sick and tired of signing up for all of this 'stuff' - one of the apparent drawbacks of this technology!!!)

I tried a few different RSS feed styles – using the Add Page Element within Blogger was very clunky – you had to add an element for each feed… took up a lot of page space.

Found a site, SpringWidgets, where you can create your own ‘customized’ reader… looks much better, contains things within a set area, and allows up to 10 feeds… but it did take a while to play around with different feed addresses… some just wouldn’t work in it… but worthwhile persevering with... and if you check out FaceBook, MySpace, Bebo, the social networking sites are filled with widgets. And everything we're putting on these pages are widgets.

Now onto Online Image Generators!!!
