My blog reading tools replacing Google Reader.

I miss the Google Reader; I miss it very much. It was the best aggregator of my favorite websites and blogs. Here are some of the blog reading tools that I am trying now before I settle on the best.

Google Reader was a wonderful feed aggregator; I wonder why it was shut down by Google.

Feed readers are great blog content resources for bloggers, web content authors and professional web content researchers and curators. I belonged to the first category when the Google reader closed the doors. Now I will put myself under the last category.

After the demise of Google Reader, I have been trying several news reading tools but I am yet to finalize the one that best serves my purpose.

Here are the best resources to read the latest RSS Feeds of your favorite websites and blogs.


AOL reads America Online when expanded. Do you remember the famous ‘Netscape Navigator’ web browser? It was owned by the AOL.

AOL Reader is a useful and a respected feed aggregator. I have been toying with it for some time now.

In all the feed readers, you either add the feed URLs of your favorite websites or you follow the ones suggested the feed aggregators. In addition, you can also search and find a website that you would stay updated with.

Feed reading tools always update the websites that you have opted to read their feeds.



Feedly is the favorite of thousands of professional web researchers. Once you read something that you want to use it at a later stage, you can store to retrieve whenever you want.With Feedly, you can also share any data with your social media profile.


When you find something worth to read, using the ‘bookmarklet’ button, you put that into your ‘pocket’ for a leisurely reading.


If you are a serious blogger, you must be using any one of the above blog reading tools.

How ribbon microphone is superior to others?

Do you know why some stage concerts fail and turn away the audience in spite of employing exceptional speakers and high-end amplifiers? It is due to the quality of microphones used by the singers as well as the music instruments players.

I would not say the money matters to such bands to buy the best gadgets but the lack of awareness of superior quality microphones such as the ribbon microphone is the prime cause of failed performances.

The main aspect is the way it is made. This ribbon mike picks up the sound signals from both sides of it. It is called bidirectional mic. Yes, it also looks good and sturdy too.


The ribbon microphone is built on only two main components. Find them out by visiting the link above.

Can children be taught to blog?

I would say no if the said ‘children’ are below 15 years. However, if they are above 15 and if they are stilled called children ( I would not call), yes then, they can be taught to blog.

One should not expect their blogging children to straightaway become popular. It is near impossible to even say “I am blogger” before two years.
The cliché is modern technology is a trap and not a trap. It all depends on the self-discipline.

Development in the art of writing at a budding age is truly an enrichment of your child’s innovative mind. Furthermore, blogging can have numerous benefits:
• Trigger the sense of responsibility – let your child know that blogging is not merely posting; certain responsibilities are brought up like updating, posting daily blogs, answering reader’s queries, and more.
• Establishes communication – connection to the outside world enable kids to reach out to distant relatives and friends. Better yet, getting updates and issues of what’s going on.
• Enhances creativity – upon knowing a child’s potentials, enhance it. Attending to his talents provides eagerness in the child and he would be more confident to profess his skills.

• Enriches vocabulary – it doesn’t stop in learning ABC, your child has the opportunity to play with the words. Make them think. How could I construct an effective sentence that could affect both the reader and the writer? He should learn to cope with words or phrases, correctly. Visiting websites like those that have a thesaurus, dictionary, etc.
