Feed Your Mind

I've spoken before about RSS.  It's a lot to go into right now, but the short version is that RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication.  It's useful because it allows you to "subscribe" to the content from websites that you visit often, rather than have to actually waste visiting those websites when you're not really sure there's anything new there.  If you'd like to know more about RSS, check here or here.

Beware this trap:  Don't subscribe to SO MANY feeds that you give yourself overload.  It's important to constantly prune your feeds.  You're subscribing to feeds because there's so much CRAP out there that you want the stuff you really want to read to come to you.  Therefore, it behooves you be sure that the stuff that comes is quality.  If you become dissatisfied with what you're getting, get rid of it. 

That being said, Yahoo! offers a service that lets you aggregate multiple feeds into a single feed, and I've created such a feed of stuff that I enjoy reading.  I have decided to share it with you.  Keep in mind that I'll constantly be pruning this feed, but for right now I'm pretty happy with it.  You can subscribe to it here.  It's called "Feed Your Mind".   The content is varied, but consistently interesting in my opinion.  Mind that I don't call something "interesting" lightly.  The items that come through here should (hopefully) be thoughtful, insightful and enriching.  If you come across anything that you think would be a worthy addition to the "Feed Your Mind" feed, please let me know.

Enjoy your reading.
