Ever wonder how certain MLBTR readers are able to leave a comment two seconds after I publish a new post? In most cases, it’s not because they sit on the site constantly refreshing it. Instead, they use a feed reader.
For example, the free Google Reader "constantly checks your favorite news sites and blogs for new content." So first you download the Reader, then you hit Add Subscription and paste in this URL:
It’s really quite easy, and it’s the best way to stay on top of new content at your favorite sites and blogs (including MLBTR!) If you’re new to feeds, take three minutes and give it a shot. This is also a good option for those who hate the white on black color scheme (though I may look into the idea of a button that switches it to black on white if you want).
