If you’re like me, then you’re bound to visit a number of your favorite websites and blogs in a given week to consume the latest and greatest news.

And if not visiting your favorite websites, then you’re likely trying to keep up with email notifications about the latest blog content, video (Yes, YouTube feeds too!), or podcast.

Today, I’m letting you in on a little secret that should help you simplify and effectively manage of your favorite websites, and their notification of new blogs, video, and podcast content.

About a decade or so ago, I tracked a number of websites and blogs using a service called Google Reader. I know, I just dated myself. 😔

And then one afternoon in July 2013, Google Reader no longer worked because Google pulled the plug on it, citing declining use.

And just like that, centrally managing website notification of new blogs, video, and podcast content dropped off the face of the earth.

Off course, there have been a number of other ways (i.e., Feedly, NewsBlur, Feeder) to receive timely notification of your favorite websites’ content, but my favorite has to be Digg Reader.

In my opinion, Digg Reader offers a very simple, clean, and minimal interface to keep up with website RSS subscriptions.

Also, one of the main reasons I like it is because an easy-to-use Chrome extension allows you to easily subscribe to RSS feeds with a click of a button. Just that easy.

Simply sign in using Gmail, Twitter or Facebook, and you’re read to add your first RSS feed subscription using the “+ Add” button found in the lower left corner of Digg Reader.

For example, if you wanted to keep up with KickstartCommerce.com’s RSS Feed, then you could simply use the following default RSS URL as provided by WordPress: https://www.kickstartcommerce.com/feed.

As you can see below, here’s what the aforementioned RSS URL feed looks like when viewing via a browser:

Another cool default feature WordPress offers is the ability to also have category and tag RSS URL feeds.

For example, if you wanted to keep up with KickstartCommerce.com’s Auction RSS Feed, then you could simply use the following default RSS URL as provided by WordPress: https://www.kickstartcommerce.com/category/auctions/feed.

As you can see below, here’s what the aforementioned RSS URL feed looks like when viewing via a browser:

Now once added to Digg Reader, you can view all updates for ALL or specific subscriptions using the left-hand menu.

One thing to note is that new updates are bolded, both the actual update within the subscription and the subscription itself. This makes it easy to know and identify which subscriptions have been most recently updated.

I encourage readers of this blog to subscribe to both the blog RSS feed and various categories you find interesting.

Now instead of visiting all of your favorite websites daily, you can now visit one place and understand whether or not new content has been delivered when using Digg Reader.

What are you waiting on? Get started today with your Digg Reader account, and setup RSS subscriptions to your favorite websites — including KickstartCommerce.com. 😉

Of course, I’ve provided an easy step-by-step video tutorial showing you how easy it is to get started. Let me know if you have questions. That’s all for now.
