Something I built on Glitch (previously on MeFi) HARO2RSS is not affiliated with "Help a Reporter Out". This is simply an easier way to consume the queries via rss. If you prefer to get the stories by email, keyword alerts and more - sign up. They have both free and premium plans. [more inside]
Even in the midst of some technological turbulence (see also: “blogging is dead,” “Google Reader is gone“) there remains a vibrant and enjoyable literary blogosphere. You can still subscribe to a huge number of blogs and join the conversation. I’ve created a tool to help make it easy to do this, so you can get back to reading and posting. Using Silliman’s Blogroll as a starting point, I’ve created an OPML file. This file is a big list of all the RSS feeds of all the blogs on Silliman’s list. The file is designed to be imported into your blog reader of choice. Since Google Reader isn’t around anymore, I recommend Feedly (my current favorite) or Digg Reader (also very good).

So what DOES it do? Feedpope gathers a sampling of updates from your favorite spots on the web, resulting in a mangeable and varied stream of posts to keep you informed and entertained without making the internet seem like another full-time job. Here's a sample installation to play around with. [more inside]
