FeedBlitz - THE new way to track and read blogs?

RSS, Blogs, XML, readers and aggregators can be confusing. Adding email services to your blog isn't.

It's easy too! No gurus required. The basic service is free to all - no restrictions, no ads. Plus, you can subscribe to any blog or RSS feed by email with FeedBlitz, even if that blog does not use FeedBlitz itself.

I've been using FeedBlitz for a few days only, I like it a lot already. Until now, I prefer this way over using one of the RSS readers I tried. I bet FeedBlitz will become quite popular! It's not for you if you have to track news feeds that are updated every few minutes, but since most of the blogs I read are only updated once a day (or less) I don't mind.

FeedBlitz benefits:
  • You don't have to use another program to track
  • You can archive the emails you get from FeedBlitz - and search them later! (For example with Google Desktop Search)
  • It's free

Just a quick update: I added 'a few' more feeds, now I am subscribed to 37 feeds  :Thmbsup:

(And no, I don't read ALL the posts from every feed, just what's interesting to me)

Man.. You really are desperate to make people see this thread  :tellme: (and it seems to be working ;) )

@mouser: that seems like a nice idea, it's allways another option for people to join the community :D

i set up a feedblitz syndication for recent posts at DC:

http://www.feedblitz.com/f/?Sub=22516

basically the idea is simple - you sign up and receive a daily email listing all new posts on the forum (discovered by this service using RSS).

i'm not sure if it will get all the posts, but it's interesting and might be just what some people might like (works best with html mail).
