Putting RSS to the Test
What enormous fun... having the world come to me!!! I must admit that adding feeds to my Google Reader account was a bit clunky at first, but once I got going, it really was easy. I really like being able to go to ONE place to catch up on numerous sites and blogs. Keeping up to date on world and local news is great, especially since I never have time to read the paper or watch the news on television. RSS is also an important tool to stay informed about changing technology in the world of libraries and technology, helping library staff to develop new and better ways to meet the needs of their customers. BUT, the best thing for me personally... I've added a few blogs from my favorite spot in the Virginia mountains, a small county where folks still hang out their quilts to dry and feed the animals before dawn. It's a place of clean air, warm hearts, fresh pies, simple pleasures... a place I run to when the world is too much. And now the musings of this place's people are delivered to me each day!!!
