Exploring Bloglines

Another web tool introduced to me was Bloglines. So what is it? Here's it all in one breath!
Bloglines is a FREE online service for searching, subscribing, creating and sharing news feeds, blogs and rich web content. With Bloglines, there is no software to download or install -- simply register as a new user and you can instantly begin accessing your account any time, from any computer or mobile device. And it's FREE!
Adapted from About Bloglines.

A screenshot of Bloglines' home page. Kind of like Wikipedia's.

I haven't discovered most of Bloglines yet, but the Feeds section is enough presently to overwhelm me. They allow subscription to sites of your interest right from the beginning so you get started and active on Bloglines straight away.

Here's showing what you can get from the feeds - amazing photos and stories all a click away!

Baby isopod Ceratoserolis. Wonder what it feels like underneath..

Ghostly shrimp-like creature, called Cylindrarcturus.

It's an animal called Ctenocidaris! Thought it was a plant..

Well, that was just a few beautiful pictures I came across while browsing through my National Geographic News : Animals and Nature feed. =)

The feeds section works just like NetNewsWire and Google Reader in addition to other features available on Bloglines. So my guess is that I'm going to stick to Bloglines more frequently!

These feeds can be categorised accordingly to your preferences under playlists. It makes you more organised as your feeds list grows longer and longer.

Another section of Bloglines I stumbled upon's a blog segment. So, now that I'm left to discover Bloglines, I've created another blog for myself accidentally! Like 2 blogs isn't enough to keep me occupied. Then again, Siva has like 16 blogs?! As you can see from the post, I was really lost. I was thinking it could somehow publish a post to the blog over here at the Raffles Museum Internship. Then, the birth of the third blog.

So check out Bloglines and get an account yourself today!

Its possible to link to your public feeds, e.g. here are mine - a litle defunct but you get the idea!

Oh take a look at this: "RSS and natural history news in Singapore," from 21 Jan 2005.
