Nice right?

If you desire a Zite or Flipboard type experience on your laptop/desktop. Feedly is probably your answer. Feedly is essentially a user created magazine based on your subscription to rss feeds. But, it is better! You can easily find content based upon your subject interest.

And, tying back to my article a couple weeks ago about Pocket, you can save articles in Pocket, Evernote, delicio.us, and instapaper. For Social, there are the typical G+, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, its own “Save for Later” and e-mail.

You can easily create collections of blogs that you like to follow. Especially those outside of WP (ahem, Blogger, Typepad, LiveJournal) if they have an rss address. Usually under the symbol below. Sometimes the content isn’t available within Feedly when you paste in the rss address. I’ve found the majority of popular blogs available.

Why are Lists, Magazine, Cards or Full article cool? Because you can arrange your feeds in List view, magazine view, you get the picture. Feedly is available as a download, and a Chrome web store app (which is the way I use it). I don’t know everything about this cool tool, but it is a nice personal magazine for those unable to use Zite or Flipboard. Now, Pulse for windows is an option for Feedly, which…we will review next week! 😀

I would recommend trying out as many of the tools as you can so you can pick the one right for you. I use Zite and Feedly. Until next week…keep improving your quiver of tools.

Today is Thursday. That means…Writer Tools!

Well, I’m excited about it even if you aren’t.

Today we talk a little bit about “Pocket” http://getpocket.com.
Pocket is one of the many utilities for capturing web content for future perusal.
I’ve used http://delicio.us, and currently also use Evernote’s web clipper.

Pocket is easy to use. There are chrome, iOS versions, Android and Kindle Fire versions. You can send to your pocket via e-mail, and from twitter, zite and flipboard (and others). Windows Mobile, WebOS, Symbian 60, & Blackberry too! This is a huge expandable pocket so you don’t need to worry about your shirt having a huge lump. 🙂

I like to use Pocket for quick capture. I may move the content over to Evernote later if I know I want to use the information. There is not concept of folders in Pocket, but there is the more modern method of “tagging” to organize your content, which is really much more powerful than folders.

Give it a spin. I’ll review Evernote some other Thursday.
