Have just been spending time searching for feeds for my RSS. Unfortunately they all seem very American which I suppose is understandable as most of the websites seem to be American. I found the Blogline search tool okay although the National Geographic sites kept telling me they were expired. Pity - they could be rather interesting. Tired the latest movie site which could be fun if you were interested in the latest hot shot from the states. Doesnt really do much for me so I didnt bother trying to find my way around it any longer. Did manage to get the NZ Herald on board. Pity they cant put it on a screen in the bus - then I wouldnt have to spend any time in the morning catching up with the news. The BBC should be a goodie when there are specific things happening around the world. It will be great being able to catch the news as it happens while at work. Sometimes it seems as though we get cut off from the world until the news at 6 on TV.
The site I really enjoyed just for the sheer pleasure of looking at the images etc was http://flowerpress.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=rss. Probably not very inspiring if you want some academic enhancement but if they keep up the good work then the little shop in Sydney with its embroidery and flowers etc could just be one of the happy sites that might entice me to spend a little more time in front of this rather monotonous screen.

  1. Had the same problem - that funny little orange symbol seemed to be everywhere until I knew what it was for, then I couldn't find a decent site to subscribe to! However, I have persevered and found a couple that you might also find interesting. A "how to use your camera" digital photography site http://digital-photography-school.com/ and a recipe site http://simplyrecipes.com/ ... enjoy!
