New RSS feeds for WebQuests

I've just added RSS feeds both for the WebQuest News blog and for the Forum here in the WebQuest portal. If you use a news aggregator, you can add these links to it and thus be alerted whenever anything new is added. Here are the URLs you need:

WebQuest Forum: http://webquest.org/forum/rss.php
WebQuest News: http://webquest.org/news/webquestnews_rss.xml

A very good RSS aggregator is Bloglines. Go to http://www.bloglines.com and get yourself a free account. Then you'll be able to set up links for all the feeds that interest you. Many personal blogs and news sites (New York Times, Reuters, for example) are available via RSS. Personally, I'm using Bloglines to cover over 160 feeds. I'm able to keep track of a lot more information in a lot less time.

Here are some of my personal favorite feeds:


Highly recommended! Once you get into RSS you'll never surf the old way again.
