Two great posts at How not to blog
I’m responding to these posts on my blog as I can’t find the comments section on How not to blog
Feed filtering (via tags?)
I know this frustration, you like only some of the content within a feed, they don’t have a category feed so you just put up with it.
Folksonomic blog post titles? Better RSS feed filter methods? Better Search?
This takes the previous post up a notch…explains having a system where every blog post has a list of category tags with a rating, and (I think?) to have this information appear in your RSS aggregator along with the title and content.
From the post:
“Clicking on a tag in the chain will take you to a page that displays the appropriate tagged articles from your site and other sites (delicious, Technorati, etc.)…this method can also assist RSS aggregators in filtering articles for you. You could set your reader to display articles from X blog tagged with Yahoo with a weight of at least 6….:”
At the moment we will just have to stick to using category RSS feeds, and if a blog doesn’t offer these, use Blogdigger to make ‘em yourself
Filtering further…try using a search term within a category feed, and subscribe to that precise content (then we will start worrying that we are missing out on stuff!)
