Feeding the Reader

So I was a little leery of setting up my RSS feed reader--not because of anything technological, but because I didn't think there'd be anything I'd want all the updates on. What you need to know about me is, I have basically no free time. I have times throughout the day when I am not really doing much, but those times are usually spent in a car or a train going back and forth to work, or totally vegged out after I have finished with the whole dinner/bath/stories/toothbrushing fandango every night. If I am lucky, I'll manage 30 minutes of some sort of exercise, but lately I've been just trying to get a little sleep. What I am usually not doing is poking around on the internet looking for news or anything else. I do need to know whether Britney is or is not in possession of her kids from time to time, but that's all.

But then I had sort of an epiphany--I don't live in the town where I work, and I don't always have time to read the paper. Voila--something to read in my downtime, and I can keep up with all the local news. And then, should I want to find out if Paris really goes to Africa or if Nicole legitimizes her baby, I can always subscribe to people.com too. Hooray!

Love it! It's all about finding the really important info...you know you can check your feeds on your mobile phone from the train...something to think about!

one of the great things about technology is how we can assimilate it into our lives to create richer enviroments. it sounds like subscribing to the feeds of your local paper will help you feel in touch with what is happening in your community, and the format is easy. you pick and choose.
and yes. all the britney news is crucial.
