Thing 69

Easy lesson related to Library 2.0 Thing #8 (Make life "really simple" with RSS & a newsreader-Bloglines).

FeedMyInbox is very easy to use. Just have to remember that when it asks for a website URL, it means the RSS feed address.

I signed up for CNN's Most Popular Stories RSS feed. Confirmation email was instantaneous. And as soon as I clicked the confirmation link, it popped up that the subscription was confirmed. It's easy to add additional feeds--you just keep clicking the Add Another Feed link.

Nothing much else to say. Good to recommend to news hungry patrons. Plus, it's great that it goes directly to your email instead of making you log into another web site.
