For some reason RSS hasn't been taken hold over the web. A few days ago Read, Write, Web tried to make sense of it all and confused me even more. The truth is that only a small portion of web users use RSS to aggregate web content to a single source. I'm thinking that Facebook has solved this issue for many people.
I'm a big believer in using RSS feeds in a Google Reader or iReader. I wrote about it here last year. But now there is an easier solution (though it is a bit of a walled in garden).
Alltop calls itself a magazine rack of the best content on the web.
You can go to alltop.com and do a search for a subject. Alltop will point you to the best blogs and sites on that subject.
Even better, you can make your own Alltop page filled with headlines from blogs and sites that are automatically updated hourly.
Check out the Alltop page I made here: http://my.alltop.com/chrismingryan
You are welcome to make my page your home page, but it's just as easy to make your own by going here: http://my.alltop.com/
Fill it up with the best the web has to offer and don't forget to pick up my blog over at http://video.alltop.com/ The Way We Watch was accepted into Alltop on Christmas day.
Are you using Alltop in lieu of RSS?
