I’ve been playing around a bit more with RSS readers over the past week. Here’s a very brief update on the three I’ve spent the most time with:

I’m using NewsBlur as my default reader, with The Old Reader bookmarked for occasions when I need to search my feeds. I’d switch to TOR if it retrieved full text from partial RSS feeds, but it doesn’t. (And no, I’ve found that most of the full-text retrieval utilities don’t work reliably. The one built into NewsBlur is great.)

Obviously, the feature set you care about might vary from mine, but these are the things that matter to me. Just thought I’d pass it along.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
