RSS & Newsreaders

I've always seen RSS on many blogs, but never paid attention to them. Will try it out. Will my I be swamped with information? When will I find the time to read them :) Using the ones I've chosen would help all aspects of my work life. It would keep me informed about the latest trends and library news. Also help with my reader advisory. Always looking for a good book to recommend to a patron. I wonder how many patrons have a feed to our Hot Topics page.

Hi Sharon -

To find out how many Bloglines users are subscribed to a newsfeed...
1) Log in to your Bloglines account
2) Click on a newsfeed
3) Look at the blue horizontal bar above the blog's title, and you'll see the text subscribers | related feeds | unsubscribe | edit subscription. This will tell you how many Bloglines users are subscribed to that newsfeed.
4) You can click on "subscribers" to see how many people have made their Bloglines account Public, and click on each to see what other interesting blogs they're subscribed to!
