Once upon a time, email newsletters were rare and a great way of staying up-to-date with the news from ones favorite companies and their websites.
Today, it often seems that every man and his dog produces an e-newsletter, and with the best will in the world, it’s hard to stay on top of things at best, and hard to trawl through an email inbox that seems to be impossible to clear and get on top of.
But do not fret – you don’t need to move mountains to get over this issue – there’s a way to work around the problem.
I am a big fan of Google Reader (there are many other Readers, such as Its main competitors are NewsGator Online, Rojo.com and Bloglines). It means that I no longer have an inbox full of email newsletters.
The reader is an “aggregator”. It allows you to keep track of your favorite websites.
A Reader constantly checks your favorite news sites and blogs for new content. Whether a site updates daily or monthly, you can be sure that you won’t miss a thing. Further to that, you can check the reader in your own time, rather than being “distracted” every time a new email comes into your inbox.
As a company that produces an email newsletter ourselves, we are acutely aware that it’s increasingly not for everyone, and we’re finding that more and more people are subscribing to our RSS feeds, preferring it to emails.
Quite simply, a Reader shows you all of your favorite sites in one convenient place and acts like a personalized inbox for the entire web. It can organize your feeds, remove them when read and many more “considerate” things.
