Update: Although it’s not free ($20 per year subscription), “Attensa for Outlook”:http://www.attensa.com/products/outlook/ looks like a nice alternative to IntraVnews, which I’ve reviewed below. They certainly seem to like it at “Performancing”:http://performancing.com/node/1105.
I’ve finally made the move to keeping up with my favorite blogs through their RSS feeds. I tried a few apps and web-based services, but eventually settled on intraVnews, which is a free RSS plugin for Outlook.
You can publish to your blog right from Outlook, using a plugin, and it supports all the major blog software. Oh, and did I mention that it’s free and works like a charm.
Plus, the support is great. I emailed them with a question and had a response back within the hour–now that’s customer service!
I love reading my blogs via Outlook; it’s just *so* convenient! I’m still waiting to see whether RSS will be the next ‘big thing’, but I’m certainly a convert.
Note: since I originally made this post, I moved to “using Bloglines as my feed reader”:http://www.smileycat.com/miaow/archives/000035.php.
