I believe that RSS reading is good for you and essential for your learning journey.It is huge source of information, inspiration and it can completely replace watching TV or reading newspapers.
Let me share with you my heart’s and soul’s favorite blogs, blogs which I read among first when I have 1000+ unread RSS feeds clog in my
Google Reader, Bloglines, Feedly.
