How to Organize Your Favorite Websites and News/Blog Feeds

How to Organize Your Favorite Websites and News/Blog Feeds | NacheSnow.com

Have you ever (1) read something and wanted to refer back to it, but couldn’t find it. Or (2) missed out on a sale or event because you weren’t subscribed to a site’s feed or newsletter.

Whelp, you’re in the right place. I’m going to give you my top three social bookmarking sites to help you organize all of this content on the web. I’m hopeful that once you set up a system with these tips and apps, it will make life just a little bit easier.

Before we begin, when I say “create a system” I’m referring to creating some processes and routines around how you deal with content.

Feedly

Feedly allows you to subscribe to publications, blogs, YouTube Channels, or anything else that has an RSS feed. You just hit the plus sign in the app or click the button on your browser and viola. I love that Feedly is available via desktop and a mobile app.

Feedly also allows you to create custom feeds. For example, I subscribe to over 50 feeds, but I’ve organized them into custom feeds/folders like “fashion,” “business,” calligraphy.” If I want to only concentrate on a particular topic, I can click the custom feed I’ve set up and just read what I’m interested in at that specific time.

Feedly has a free and paid version.
Website: feedly.com

IT’S FOR YOU IF:

  • You have a ton of website you’re trying to keep up
  • You want to reference and share content
  • Need ability to Search or filter content (paid feature)

SYSTEM:

  • Add the Feedly button on your desktop and mobile browser
  • When you run into a feed (blog, publication, YouTube channel) you like, click the Feedly button and add it
  • Be sure to set up custom feeds so you can quickly sift through your content
  • Pick a day or time every week/month to go through your content

Pocket

Pocket is an app that allows you to save a specific article. For example, let’s say you’re researching how to use your Canon. Every time you find a useful article you can save it to Pocket and tag it with “Canon.”

Now all of the articles you found useful are now in one place. I really like using it when I run into an article that I don’t have time to read, I just add it to Pocket, and I’ll get to it when I have time.

GetPocket has a free and paid version.

IT’S FOR YOU IF:

  • You like referring back to old articles
  • Find yourself going through the browser history to find an article you read
  • You want to reference and share content
  • If you want to search for content easily

SYSTEM

  • Add the Pocket button to your desktop and mobile browser
  • Click the Pocket button when you land on an article you want to save for later
  • Make sure you tag your article so you can easily find things by topic
  • Pick a day or time every week/month to go through your content

Pinterest

Love, love, love Pinterest for so many reasons. For the most part, I like to use Pinterest to collect inspirational images and videos that I can curate to public and private boards. The bonus is the pictures usually link back to an article that explains how to do something (cooking, DIY, business tips, etc.).

I also use Pinterest to brainstorm ideas. It’s like my digital mood board. I think I have over 30 private boards (crazy pants!). I even have a secret board of things I want “To Buy.” This board allows me to think before I buy. I know I won’t forget about the product and it gives me some time to figure out if I really need it.

Pinterest is completely free. Since it’s a search engine, it’s also a great way to reference content from all over the web that you can also pin.

IT’S FOR YOU IF:

  • You like seeing your content via images
  • You like the idea of sharing your finds publicly, with the option of making some of your discoveries private
  • You like organizing your content with boards
  • If you want to search for content easily

SYSTEM:

  • Add the Pinterest button to your desktop and mobile browser
  • When you land on a website or article that you want to reference later, click your Pinterest button (note: I only save it to Pinterest if it has an image I want to reference later. If it doesn’t I’ll save it to Feedly or Pocket)
  • Make sure you create boards that are specific (i.e. instead of a “cooking board” you might want to create something more specific such as “cast iron recipes”)
