Aggregators or RSS (Really Simple Syndication) help keep track of other like minded blogs to alert you to new postings. With an RSS it allows you to monitor your favourite websites or blogs that you have selected. Using a RSS saves a huge amount of time searching and checking whether anything new has been posted.

I used google reader to keep track of the blogs I wanted to monitor. It has proven to be really useful and effective. I wish I had found it earlier it would have been very handy.

  1. I agree with you, I wish I had of found it early too. It’s not only a great tool to keep track of other blogs, but your faviourte web site such as newspapers - which will be great tool for us as LM to keep up-to-date with the current issues in society, or maybe even technology as it is up-dated.
