Here's how NewsBlur works. Go to www.newsblur.com. Sign up for a free account. Click the "+" symbol at the lower-left corner of your screen to add a blog/feed (i.e. copy and past the blog's URL address there). Repeat to add all the blogs you monitor. Now, instead of your email being flooded with blog postings, sign on to NewsBlur whenever you feel like accessing the content ("pull" vs "push" content) and you can then toggle through all the postings that have appeared since the last time you signed on by simply clicking on the "Next Unread" command button to the right of the screen.
Here's a starter set of blogs/feeds for your reader:
- Cabin Porn - No, not really, just photos of neat cabins
- The Berkshires of Western Massachusetts
- The Clark
- Grafton Community Library
- Rensselaer Plateau Life
