Filtered RSS Feed

Partly due to a request from Tony Karrer for eLearning Learning and partly because others have asked in the past, I did a little research on how to filter an RSS feed so I can provide a feed without the daily bookmarks posts. If you’re interested in that, here’s the RSS feed without bookmarks and the link for subscribing via email.

In the past, I’ve tried using PostRank for a similar purpose, but that didn’t quite do what I wanted. It filtered out most of the bookmarks post, but bookmarks posts that generate conversation are included, and a number of regular posts are excluded. There’s value in what PostRank does, but it wasn’t quite the right tool for this.

This filtered feed was created with Feed Rinse. It was quick and easy (and free). This isn’t exactly what Feed Rinse was created for (you can filter your entire OPML, so it’s more intended for readers than publishers), but it seemed to work pretty well for me.

So, if you’re interested in subscribing to read my full posts but don’t want to wade through my bookmarks, now you have another option.
