NetNewsWire is my RSS reader of choice because it’s no fuss, simple to use, and available for Mac and iOS. In this post I will outline what RSS feeds I currently subscribe to, in no particular order.

This post doesn’t intend to teach you how to use NetNewsWire or what RSS feeds are, there are plenty of resources on the internet to explain what to do better than I can.

Wherever you see rss below, right click then copy, then paste it into a new feed in NetNewsWire.

  • Every WordPress blog has an RSS feed.
  • There is a plugin called Simple History which will track changes made on your WordPress website. This is particularly useful in a setup where multiple users are editing pages. Simple History will create an RSS feed that I find invaluable.

YouTube

I subscribe to a number of YouTube channels.

To change a YouTube channel to an RSS feed, do the following:

  1. Part of your URL will be https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?channel_id=
  2. Go to the YouTube channel you want to subscribe to.
  3. Click on “More about this channel”
  4. Click on Share Channel
  5. Click on Copy Channel ID
  6. Place the Channel ID at the end of the URL in step 1 so it will look like https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?channel_id=UCE1hSTtarnNASCXEpFw0jRQ
  7. Paste into a new feed into NetNewsWire

The above RSS feeds reflect my hobbies and interests, I hope you find something here of interest to you.
