Why are you not using Feedly to keep up with the news?

image Folks, if you’re using Firefox, Chrome or Safari for your web browsing, you are really missing out on a powerful plug-in for keeping up with your news feeds if you’re not using Feedly.

Feedly is a magazine like aggregator of news feeds.  Blogs, news sites, tech sites, humor, whatever.  If the site syndicates its content, then Feedly can track it for you.

It’s made blogging 100x easier for me because I can keep up with the latest political, sports and humor feeds with one click.

You download the plug-in.  You can then either import your Google Reader (or other RSS feed reader) feeds and you’re good to go.  You can also organize your feeds by content and tag some of them as “Must Read.”  The must read feeds then go to the top of your Feedly page, which you can also customize.

Right now, I’m tracking 345 feeds, organized into 12 different categories. As soon as news or blog posts hit the wire, they hit my feedly page.  Video.  Images.  Links.  Everything.

If you’re a news junkie, Feedly is hard to beat.

And this is an unpaid, unsolicited endorsement!
