Keeping up with the Mentors!

I check my aggregator on a regular basis. It is quite rare for a day to go by without me checking it at least twice. How lovely it was to see that since I last checked, 8 of our Glow Mentors have posted new entries.

The best way to keep on top of people posting is to use an online aggregator. There are many services out there, but if you use more than one computer, then it is probably best to use an online service to aggregate your blog, podcast and wiki feeds. A great one to use is bloglines.com It also lets you know how many other people subscribe to the feed using their service. I can't wait for the day when I look at bloglines for our Mentors and find that there are more people subscribe to them than the number in their group - there are 19 Mentors in A&B, so I can't wait to see the number of subscribers in bloglines reach the 20's!

Why use an aggregator? Quite simply, it does the hard work for you. Instead of having to go and check each website to see if someone has posted again, you can instantly see just from the aggregator. Therefore, you can go to your aggregator and instantly see what is happening on loads of sites!

I have also found the joy of having the feeds fed to you directly.
The one I use is www.live.com
Though doesn't give you subscription details.
