Behold! Our OPML File!

Hello everyone!

We just finished the OPML for all the blog URLs. I am excited to add it to my Feedly and dive into your blogs.

Please say hello too @elicon89

Elizabeth is working with me this semester on a INFO 298 WordPress Immersive Experience and will be creating some content and more for my classes on WP. She created the OPML for us! YAY! If we missed anyone, please just let us know!

 

All the course activity and posts can seem like a raging waterfall but utilizing a feed reader will help you!

SO – here’s how it works…. I would strongly suggest using a feed reader (like Feedly) for our course and for the future. You can easily import the class OPML into your reader and have access to all the student blogs and our main course blog in a “collection.” Then, you may want to find other blogs to follow as you grow your own professional and personal set of feeds. I read all kinds of entertainment, tech, and lifestyle blogs/sites in my feeds.

Download the OPML here.

We have a full and rich roster of folks. We used first names in the feed titles because it helps me get to know you all.  Note: I hope we didn’t make any mistakes!!

I would suggest downloading it to your desktop (via whatever method of mouse clicks you use on your computing platform) and then importing the file into reader of your choice. Make sure the file extension is .opml  I suggest Feedly and use it in the steps below.

So here’s the challenge to some fearless #hyperlib student – please add the OPML to your reader and report back here in a comment!

Second, follow these steps if you are using Feedly:

  1. Set up an account with Feedly
  2. Read over this helpful page: https://blog.feedly.com/opml/
  3. Click on your user profile pic and select Organize Sources
  4. In the Organize Sources window locate the import OPML button
  5. Click on Import OPML and locate the file you saved above or drag and drop the file if your browser supports that functionality.
  6. Follow the directions on the import screen: Choose file and Import
  7. You are ready to go!

Other sites will import differently but the OPML is a standard file type.

    It worked for me too! Just a tip: you can also add Feedly as a browser extension in Google Chrome. I went to my profile picture on the main Feedly page and clicked “Browser Add-Ons”. It makes it super accessible at all times.

    Success! Thank you @elicon89 & @michael it was super easy to import the OPML. This makes it so much easier to see everyone’s intro posts that I missed. Just for the sake of tinkering, I added the Feedly app to my phone. I must say this is a super handy way to do a quick read of some of our posts and comments.
