What are your favorite RSS feeds?

Blog or otherwise. Bonus points if it isn’t technology.

My feeds mostly consist of local news, web comics and some random blogs and podcasts.

These are some of the most relevant/active:

Kinda sure this might be known, but Two Bit History is a great blog to read, though new articles do take time. Articles are deep-dives into the history of different technologies and my favorites include one about the rise and fall of RSS, the friend-of-a-friend protocol, and one about JSON and how it’s been adopted everywhere.

100r.co is an amazing duo sailing around the world in their solar powered sailboat while making open source tech and art. They make monthly videos and have blog posts

Found today an cool self-hosted RSS Aggregator: https://github.com/FreshRSS/FreshRSS

Maybe it is interesting for somebody!

I use this for webs that don’t have RSS/Atom feeds: https://github.com/RSS-Bridge/rss-bridge

Here are a few public hosts (kinda hard to find, only mentioned in the wiki section)

I use the one in Nextcloud (holla at /c/nextcloud), also self-hosted :)

I’ve tried that one, as well as several others in the past. For now I really like Leed (via Yunohost, labeled with level 7 and “high quality”). https://github.com/YunoHost-Apps/leed_ynh

I use RSS to follow about 90 webcomics and small number of blogs.

My Favorites woul probably be:

Dresden Codak /Dark Sience

Stand Still Stay Silent

Kill six billion demons

The Bouletcorp (English translation because my french sucks)

The Factorio Friday Facts

And of course the usual XKCD and SMBC but i get the feeling those are already known around here. I’ve thougt about starting a Community for discussing Webcomics on Lemm but I haven’t found the time yet. If anyone would be interested let me know.

I have some others but my Newsblur subscription expired and I haven’t gotten around to renewing it, so this is just pulled from a list of ~64 feeds.

https://rakyll.org/index.xml <-- if you’re into golang

https://www.reddit.com/r/crafts/.rss <-- I’ve been trying to figure out how to skim the content I like out of reddit without engaging with The Cesspool.

https://blog.writefreely.org/feed/ <-- I like having in my RSS reader blogs of software I self-host’s updates. It is the right amount of nagging so I update.

I just started using RSS a couple of weeks ago. It’s been a great experience so far. I don’t have as many recommendations as others, but this is what I have:

I’ll keep an eye for any other good feeds :b

Currently my RSS feed consists of ~1600 feeds and most of them are art accounts on ArtStation, DeviantArt and tumblr, and YouTube channels. I also have regular news, science and tech news, Blender news and blogs, several webcomics (Pepper & Carrot, xkcd, SMBC, Sarah’s Scribbles, etc), some miscelaneous blogs (like Wait But Why, Today I Found Out and Picture Of The Day), lots of FOSS projects blogs and release pages, some art blogs, and many LEGO builders flickr accounts.

I think that’s about it :grinning face with sweat:

Perhaps you could share an OPML? Sounds like a wave of deep dives into a bunch of different things, and I’d much rather shamelessly profit off of someone else’s effort than put in the work myself!

There’s probably a bunch of feeds that don’t work anymore, but most should still work (I don’t think twitter’s work right now).

I hope it’s useful in a way: https://pastebin.com/C3G18E3t

PS: there’s a bunch of local newspapers from where I am, and religious blogs that you might care or not. Sorry I didn’t bother to edit it down :grinning face with sweat:

Awesome, thanks. I’m sure I’ll pare down the stuff that isn’t of interest for me.

If it were up to me, like 90% of the internet would be people sharing the swaths of obscure content they’ve found and/or curated. Well maybe not 90%, but stuff like RSS feeds and finding obscure creators. And there’s be more interest in sharing at the level of OPMLs and open directories, and huge lists of stuff.

Yeah, that would be amazing, heh. I’d love if every site with updating content had a rss/atom feed available. I’m really liking using the FeedBro Firefox extension to reed my feeds, since it also supports Instagram :grinning face:

if there are any particular artists you want to shout out feel free! I’m experimenting with following tumblr accounts via rss for the first time

@andycuccaro

I guess it depends on what you like. I very much like Andy Park’s concepts, David Nakayama’s covers, Inhyuk Lee, Daniel Bel’s sculpts (impressive stuff), OVOPACK paintings, Mitch Leeuwe sketches, Jake Park designs, Raichiyo33’s girls, Nikita Veprikov’s renders, Sandara’s dragons, JK Brickworks and nobu_tary’ LEGO builds, and of course, David Revoy paintings (which I mentioned in my previous comment but worth mentioning again). Look up my other comment for a link to the OPML :winking face:
