Just a quick post, if lots of people are interested in how to do this (leave a message in the comments of you are) I will write a full post with step by step ‘how to’ instructions.
I have got to the point where I am at information over load so I have dusted off my old Goggle Reader account, and started to stream line the information I get thrown at me on a daily basis so I can:
a) Capature everything I need to read
b) Organise myslef so I can read and respind (or action) at the most approiate time.
c) Read more
Most blogs and websites have an rss feed button that you can click and it will then prompt you to add it to your google reader, in addition to this, to subscribe to twitter feeds and youtube channels you can manually add the following url (added the required specifics you need)
- Twitter account – https://twitter.com/#!/USERNAME (This is a useful way to add users of a similar subject matter in a folder within Google Reader to monitor)
- Twitter search term – https://search.twitter.com/search.rss?q=SEARCHTERM (this is useful if you want to monitor what veryone on Twitter is saying about a specific keyword)
- Youtube channel video – http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/base/users/USERNAME/uploads?alt=rss&v=2&orderby=published&client=ytapi-youtube-profile (Useful to make sure you see all videos posted).
- + much more
There is loads more you can do with Google Reader, including sharing, but getting organised with your incoming info is a good place to start.
I hope this helps, if you nedd more help with this please post in the comments and I will write a more detailed post.
