(My emphasis here is on free and low-cost resources)

Explaining RSS

Resources to help you choose a feed aggregator

Google Reader Tips and Plug-ins

RSS-to-Email tools

Hosted RSS-to-Web-Page Tools

Feed mashing and filtering tools

Sometimes called “scraping”

  1. Thanks, Mark! I’m aware of RollSense, but haven’t played with it much- I’ll need to do that now.

    If I were to use it, I’d want to create a separate OPML, not just output my subscriptions from Google Reader…

  3. Aw, man. I left Grazr out? That’s a really nice one, too. Thanks, Steve. I’ll add it now.
