How To Use Bloglines

Bloglines is a popular, full featured news aggregator. With Bloglines you can easily search for news feeds, blogs, and podcasts from all over the internet through an easy to use, browser based user interface.

  1. Register with Bloglines: Go to www.bloglines.com and click the register link in the upper right hand corner of the screen. Enter the requested information and check you email for a validation email message from Bloglines.
  2. Select Feeds: Click the link in the validation email and you're faced with a list of Quick Pick and Popular subscriptions. Scroll through these lists, select a few feeds that interest you, and click "Subscribe to My Selections."
  3. Add New Feeds: The next time you are browsing your favorite blog or news website, be on the lookout for a little orange box containing the text "RSS". Clicking on the link will bring you to a mess of angle brackets and text. Don't worry, this is just XML, and you don't have to make any sense of it! Copy the URL of this page to the clipboard and log into Bloglines. In the "My Feeds" tab click Add, paste the URL into the "Blog or Feed URL" texbox, and then click Subscribe.

That's it. The feeds you selected will automatically update in Bloglines. Just go back to Bloglines.com when you want something new to read!
