Feedly: Keep Up With Industry News!

“Feedly: organize, read and share what matters.”

FEED-STORE_OpA while back I published an article titled The Best Websites For Self-Published Authors. As I said in that post, one effective way to stay up to date with what’s happening in the publishing world is to tune in to what successful authors and service providers are discussing on their blogs.

So recently I was part of a scintillating conversation with a group of author friends, and we got onto the subject of all the blogs we follow to keep up with the movers and shakers and news. And I mean it, there’s a lot. Things change quickly. People share great stuff. It’s a scramble to keep up, but I don’t like to let a lot fall between the cracks. (hahahaha, right).

What I did not address in the original post and did recommend in that author confab – and will repeat now – is the most effective, efficient way to collect all this information. How best to do this without creating the sub-problem of an over-stuffed inbox and spending hours combing through all of it?

I use Feedly.

Feedly is an online news aggregator that works on both web browsers and mobile devices. Feedly pulls RSS feeds from the websites you want to track and compiles new content all in one place. You tell Feedly the blogs you want to read. Feedly grabs new content when it’s posted and displays it. Then you can visit and browse through the latest at your leisure. You can also share those posts with others across your social media accounts, right from your Feedly dashboard.

So basically, Feedly helps you organize, read, and share content as you please. And it’s free.


Ah, is that the sound of people unsubscribing from my blog and stampeding to feedly? Ah, well. I aim to serve.

Here’s a tutorial about Building Feedly that will help you get started. And here’s a smattering of cool, timely, and interesting articles and factoids I gleaned from my feed recently. You’ll never want for cocktail party convo ever again. 🙂

    Aww. You included me. I feel so honored to be listed with these fabulous blogs. You’re the best, Molly! Thank you.

    Feedly is a must for keeping up with tons of blog. The only drawback comes into play when the blogger can’t include someone who follows their blog via RSS on an e-mail list.

      That is absolutely true, Jeri, and that’s why a post like this is a double-edged sword – great for the reader, not so much for the blogger. *sigh*

    Such a great suggestion! I love Feedly and use it the same way! I also use it with Duotrope to help me keep track of submission deadlines and responses from journals to which I’ve submitted.

      Duotrope is a new word to me – now I’m off to Google it. Thanks, Colette!

    Duotrope is a fantastic submission tracker for fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. It even tracks contests and keeps submission stats. Great writers’ tool.
