Behold! Our OPML File!

Hello everyone!

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



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. Using feeds is a very useful skill for future information professionals.

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!

For some background, view this video:

Second, follow these steps if you are using Feedly:

  1. Set up an account with Feedly
  2. Read over this helpful page:
  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.

    Thanks for the straightforward instructions! It worked for me. I’ve never used a service like Feedly so I’m definitely going to need to spend some time poking around and figuring out how to manage it. Lots to learn!

    I was able to import the OPML file successfully into the Feedbro extension I use on Firefox for RSS subscriptions! I had some issues last semester trying to figure it all out, but I think I’ve become more comfortable with using feed readers now.

    Hello @michael. I made some changes to my hyperlink library blog including the https
    Feedly still goes to the older page that I’ve edited out and I was wondering if there was a way to refresh it so my peers can see the revised version?
    I was making my site a bit more intuitive by connecting the home page with my introduction. I then added a new page to show my mushroom gallery. I hope that was OK? 😕

    Thank you for all of those helpful instructions. I was finally able to figure out that my profile pic was my first initial on the bottom left (🤪) and then “Organize Feeds” led me to OPML Import page. Now, I had already had the @hyperlib on my Feedly, but is this OPML file so that we can see everyone’s individual blog sites at once?
