This week we’ve got some useful, and of course free RSS services.
Upload your blogroll (as an OPML) or enter your favorite feeds manually to track your subscriptions from any internet connection. Bloglines even has a desktop client that alerts you when your feeds are updated. It might be the most pleasant way to stay on top of the news on a PC.
Here’s another online service that can handle your blogroll. Feedster also has an RSS search engine that will let you sift through a top of new feeds.
This free service, still in alpha, will let you jazz up your news feeds. It reads your existing feed, enhances it and hosts it. FeedBurner takes the traffic burden off your site and gives you additional statistics and features.
The ‘net is full of outlaws, but when it comes to XML formats, you don’t want to find yourself on the wrong side of the standard. Proof your feed’s compliance and troubleshoot errors with the FeedValidator
With these tools you can once again command control of your email. Have fun.
