Talking with a friend who uses FeedLand today, the question came up as to how you find new feeds that might be interesting. So here are a few ways.#
If you don't want to do a lot of work, start with my feed list. I subscribe to a lot of feeds, more than anyone else. Now here's the cool part. If you see a checkbox that isn't checked that means you aren't subscribed to it. Just click on the checkbox to subscribe. #
Start with a feed you like, on your Feed List page. Screen shot. Click on the title of the feed, which takes you to the Feed Info page. At the end of the page is a list of other people who subscribe to that feed. Click on a name to see their Feed List page. #
Choose Recent users from the first menu. It takes you to a list of users who have recently used FeedLand. Screen shot. Click on any name to go to their feed list. There are the checkboxes again. You can play with the sort order on the Recent Users page, you can see the people who have used FeedLand the most (that's the Hits colum) or are subscribed to the most feeds (the Ct column) or have been using it the longest (click twice on the Started column). #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
