My Recommended Feeds
Who says BlogRush is a scam and a useless widget? I think it is a very good tool, because it shows random posts from a network of blogs. This makes it a very good tool to find great new blogs and many interesting posts, like the one I stumbled across today. Thanks to Blog News Channel‘s announcement of Google Reader’s Recommended Feeds feature, I not know that it exists, and I can find find more blogs with content similar to what I usually read. Since I always start with the “latest news” page in Reader, then I would have never seen the official announcement on the home page.
The following is a list of feeds recommended to me:
- The Quantum Pontiff
- Earners Blog: Get in the Know
- DCEmu Forums:: The Homebrew & Gaming Network :: PSP Dreamcast Nintendo DS Wii GP2X Xbox 360 GBA Gamecube PS2 Forums – PSP News Forum
- MaxConsole.net News
- Uncertain Principles
- PSP 3D
- Kernel Planet
- Planet Debian
- Planet GNOME
- Debian Package of the Day
- Digg / Gaming
- Digg / Entertainment
- Digg / World & Business
- Official Google Enterprise Blog
- Google Custom Search
- Google AJAX Search API Blog
- Chitika Blog
- ProBlogger Blog Tips
- Dosh Dosh – Making Money Online
How useful was the list of recommendations? To be honest, I have to say that I am a bit disappointed, because it displayed only big prominent blogs. I know they exist, and if I wanted to I would have already subscribed to them. What I am looking for is small blogs, like mine, that post similar content. Not the big guys, they get boring after a while. That is not to say the list was not accurate. Most of the blogs are very similar to ones that I am already subscribed to. Several of the recommendations are already in aKregator, my offline RSS reader.
So what feeds have been recommended to you?
