I am long-term, devoted RSS feed user. I started with the now-defunct Google Reader, well, many moons ago. Eventually, I began pumping the feeds I had gathered over the years into different UIs with Feedly and Zite eventually becoming my favorites. (I want to love Flipboard but must admit that I do not.)
At any rate, the result of all this over time is that I spend somewhere in the neighborhood of 30 minutes to an hour each morning keeping abreast of developments in the marketing and publishing spaces, looking for the intersection of the two and, while doing so, I share posts that I feel will be useful to others, primarily via Twitter.
Now the team at The Logical Marketing Agency has joined me on many dives into these waters (not all, as it is possible my daily practice is a bit over the top) and we’ve begun to compile a weekly round up post and accompanying email. The content consists of the 5-10 articles we found noteworthy from the prior week, and ranges from publishing news to digital marketing primers to in-depth digital best practices and the latest developments in the tech world. To wit, response has been very positive.
All of our existing efforts to provide perspective and information continue through our many social presences (listed here), Mike’s blog, and other venues but we feel this is a nice, quick-hit way to get what we believe is “breaking” and valuable. I hope you take a look and find it useful reading.
