You can easily make a Reading List with an OPML editor like OPML Manager or OPML Workstation, the only thing is that when you want to add a feed you have to launch your editor and make the changes.
It’s probably most convenient making a Reading List in your RSS Reader, like BlogBridge, as this is where you read and subscribe to feeds anyway.
As I mentioned in my last post Danny Ayers has hacked del.icio.us, so you can use it to make Reading Lists
…the benefit of this is that you can add an item to your Reading List via the bookmarklet…very convenient, and if you want to delete an item, all it takes is two clicks in del.icio.us (click the tag to browse, click the delete next to the item).
So how is it done?
Well firstly instead of bookmarking HTML pages to del.icio.us you are bookmarking feed URL, so I wouldn’t bookmark the blog homepage, I would bookmark the blog feed page.
What you need?
The RSS URL of your tag
Then you need Danny’s special conversion URL
Whack both of these into this processing form
Here’s your OPML URL for that tag…now is this URL hosted by w3?
There you have it, each time you add/delete a feed in that tag, it will be reflected in the OPML version (dynamic)
Now my question was to make one for the tag bundle, but it doesn’t have a URL so I’ve already hit a wall.
From my earlier post:
“Now what about doing this for tag bundles, probably not because they haven’t got a URL, but if they did (like Raw Sugar) you could make a Reading List (tag bundle), where all the items are also Reading Lists (tags)…kind of like a mother Reading List or a Reading List menu…this is called OPML inclusion…see more.”
Doesn’t matter really, all I have to do is make an OPML at OPML Workstation, and include the various del.icio.us tag OPML’s as items…done.
