Online reading personally always felt painful—annoying advertisements, affiliate links, different layouts and typography on each page. Then, keeping together various sources was the next problem. Until not long ago, I was stuck with multiple lists of pages I had collected, newsletters, channels, profiles—you name it.
A recent client project forced me to build an RSS feed, and to debug, I decided on FeedbinOne great feature of Feedbin is an individual e-mail address, of which subscribed newsletters will also appear in the feed.. I had tested the platform before, but refused to pay after the end of the trial (before putting my digital well-being above monetary resources).
For the time being, I am very content with both the collection of sources, as well as how they’re being fetched and displayed. However, I quickly noticed how many sites lack a (properly formatted) RSS feed.
Either information is incomplete at most, or there is no feed in the first place. This is to say, to anyone (in)frequently publishing online: create an RSS feed and optimise it—everyone (me) will be forever thankful.
