Now we are getting into my favorite part of the whole Web 2.0 field - RSS. The benefits of having information come to you - as opposed to you having to go out to find that information on different websites scattered throughout the 'net - are immense! However, the ease of subscribing to RSS feeds and the possibility of finding yourself following 160 different feeds (the number I currently have in my Bloglines account...) means that you have to be careful of information overload.
Be sure to check out the Bloglines buttons, too - just click on the "Add" link above your subscriptions on the left side of the page, then click on the "Easy Subscribe Button" link on the right side of the page. The directions are pretty simple - pick the browser you are using, drag the appropriate button to your toolbar and start subscribing whenever you see that a site you like has a RSS feed.
I generally use Bloglines to keep up with both my librarian blogs and my web design blogs - as well as the blogs you all are creating for this program. Without Bloglines to let me know when you all post to your blogs, I would be very hard-pressed to respond in a timely manner to your posts!! Other people use Bloglines to create temporary "research" folders, adding in sites that publish information on their topic so that they can get the latest info that they need for their particular research needs. You all will find your own uses for Bloglines, I'm sure - I can't wait to read your posts to find out how you are using it!!
