Are you feeling overwhelmed by the deluge of email newsletters and blog updates? I was until I started using a RSS feed reader. I use Google‘s, but there are many that will do the trick. See the link below for the detailed skinny. Many browsers, like Fire Fox also let you build your list of favorite sources and view the titles as they syndicate. These are called live bookmarks.

RSS (Real Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary) solves a problem for people who regularly use the web. It allows you to easily stay informed by retrieving the latest content from the sites you are interested in. You save time by not needing to visit each site individually. You ensure your privacy, by not needing to join each site’s email newsletter.

Oddpodz has a feeds for all 3 blogs as do most all content rich sites. Just click on the orange icons and you are ready to read without having to schlep through 50 million ezines.
