Using Live.com for RSS

Using Live.com for RSS

  • Comments 11

Here's a quick set of steps for using Live.com (http://www.Live.com) as your RSS reader.  What I like about it is that I can log in to it from anywhere.  What I like most is that I can create multiple pages to organize my feeds.  This let's me focus my information.

Here's the steps for creating pages and adding feeds to them: (you need to login to Live.com for these options)

Adding a New Page

  1. Click Add Page.
  2. Click the drop-down arrow next to the new page you just created.
  3. Click Rename and type the name of your page (for example VS.NET)

Adding Feeds

  1. Click Add stuff (upper left)
  2. Click Advanced options
  3. Put the path to the RSS feed you want (for example, http://blogs.msdn.com/jmeier/rss.xml), next to the Subscribe button.
  4. Click subscribe.  This will add the feed to your page.
  5. Either add more feeds or click Add stuff again (upper left) to close the options.

Tip - If I need to search for a feed, I use a separate browser, do my search, and then paste the path next to the Subscribe button.  I don't like the Search for feeds option because I lose my context.

I like Live.com for my Web-based RSS reading experience.  I use JetBrains Omea Pro for my desktop experience, where I do my heavy processing.  I think of this like my Outlook Web Access and Outlook desktop experiences.  My Web experience is optimized for reach; my desktop experience is optimized for rich.

  • Thank you for this information. It's sad that the recently released feeds plus doesn't import my feeds from Google Reader and store them through my Live.com account. Is there a way I can tell IE7 to use my Live.com RSS feeds?

  • Harry - To use your Google Reader feeds, you could export your OPML and import in your Live.com.   I'm using IE7 for my Live.com feeds.  If you have suggestions for improvements in this area, you might try the Live.com feedback alias: livefb@microsoft.com.
