Using FeedJournal #2: Google Reader Integration

This is the second post in a series on how to best take advantage of FeedJournal Reader. Today's post describes how you can integrate FeedJournal with Google Reader, the most popular web based RSS reader . As I pointed out in the previous article, you'd rather keep feeds with shorter articles in your old RSS reader.

Still you will daily run into articles in Google Reader that you wished would show up in FeedJournal Reader. To do that, simply tag the article with "to FeedJournal" in GoogleReader.

To set up articles with this tag to be automatically published in the next print issue of FeedJournal, you have to make the tag public. This setting is available in "Manage Subscriptions" below Google Reader's subscription list. Click on the Tag tab and toggle the tag's state to public. This makes the "view public page" visible. At the bottom of the public page's right-hand column is a link to the RSS feed. That's the RSS feed you need to subscribe to in FeedJournal Reader.

Once you've made the tag public and subscribed to it, you can keep tagging articles in Google Reader to make them appear in your next print-edition of FeedJournal.

Good Luck!

  1. I don't know why, but this s not working. Maybe it's so because I'm using russian Google Reader?

  2. What is not working? Are you able to view your public feed outside of FeedJournal? Perhaps you could share the feed URL (if you don't want to post it you can e-mail me it to me privately)
