Staying Updated With Blogs

Jul 10, 2008
For most people with the internet the local news just doesn't cut it for us anymore. We want personal in depth stories that most local news broadcasts aren't willing to cover. Or maybe you like knowing what's going on locally but you hate having to be on a time schedule. You are forced to listen to forty minutes of negative reports that you've already seen, just to hear the new story.

We are fortunate to have online blogs so we can stay on top of all the most recent information. All of the TV stations that you watch have internet sites. News blogs are ideal for those interested in learning more about certain topics because posts are generally categorized by topic. Political pundits and voiced their opinions fiercly thanks to blogging on the internet. American politics are currently influenced by blogs and political opinion.

But blogs aren't limited to just politics. You can even find bloggers commenting on recent news events. When the US was bombing Iraq bloggers of Iraqi citizens were very popular. This is where blogs really give the reader the real information from someone who is there at the scene. It's pretty obvious that traditional media like the news on TV is controlled by big business. Content is very filtered before it gets to you. I don't know about you but I don't like my news filtered by anyone.

In order to stay on top of the latest events and posts, you are able to utilize a blog RSS feed. Get all your favorite blog updates at once for free with Google Reader.

People who have set up an account at google have access to their favorite RSS feeds on their personalized google home page. This same service is offered by Yahoo. This is probably the most convenient way to get your favorites blogs. Viewers that provide a variety of options to show and filter what you have selected to view can be downloaded and installed on your computer.

The feed is also available by email if you prefer. The majority of blogs will send you a daily (or as often as the author updates it) email to provide this service. This is also a great way to stay up-to-date on the news topics that interest you. Because I monitor my email often throughout the day, I prefer to get updates in this fashion.

You can contact the blogger to request that he supply some of these options on his blog, if they're not already there. This type of service is normally generously offered to their readers. However, you just need to activate these options since most blog software have these as defaults.

Blogs offer commercial free information, a must in our hurried society.
