Ways to Consume Content

Four years ago when I started blogging, I had no clue about RSS feeds and syndication. I'd just go through my blogroll and manually check to see if someone posted something new.

Now there are so many ways to aggregate the "stuff" you want to consume on the internet, saving time from having to visit each website to see if new content is available. I used Amphetadesk for awhile, and I've been using Bloglines for the longest time. Over the past 16 months, I've used Juice as my primary podcast receiver.

While going through the visitor logs for Get That Job!, I saw a referral from FeedRaider, so I decided to check out that service. I like you can show items from several feeds on one page and set up multiple pages as a way to categorize your content.

To that end, let me tell you about two feeds I've set up for Get That Job!:

The second item, via Feed2Podcast, uses text-to-speech to create an mp3 of the posts you read here. So, whether you want to read or listen to the content, it's up to you. And, of course, you can always go to the website directly to see all the Get That Job! goodness.

Speaking of the goodness, I'm always looking for job-searching success stories to share over there, so if you have something you'd like to share, please contact me at danimal0416+gtj [at] gmail [dot] com

Update: I just realized that some of you might be interested in what I'm consuming, so here's the link to my FeedRaider web presence.

As you were.

Hello.

I've been using Bloglines for a long time now, but it's certainly feeling its age. While I tried mostly all of the readers out there, one that really stood out and is virtually unknown is Gobits Reader. It's very neat.
