I love RSS!

After using Google Reader for years (who didn’t 🤷‍♂️) I went to feedly for some time (who didn’t 🤷‍♂️). But I don’t remember if it was ads or my motivation to self-host, that brought me to Nextcloud News.

Since buying a NAS three years ago, I seldomly use Nextcloud for anything else than reading my feed. And for a feed reader it’s quite bloated. Yes there are also other nice apps for Nextcloud, but I just don’t use them.

Where was I? Right, RSS, love it. I want to switch to a different, self-hosted system, but haven’t decided which one yet.

I also don’t have a proper read-later/bookmark tool. My “bookmarks” are a mess. Some links are on my mobiles “read later” function of the browser, some are faved entries on my Nextcloud News. I need to find a proper way to aggregate that. I used Instapaper all the way back in 2010 for a good long time, but never found a good alternative after it was sold.

Why am I rambling about bookmarking tools now? I already found one or two interesting RSS tools to try but I don’t remember where I saved the link 😣

Now, after thinking for 30 seconds I decided on a whim to give pocket a try. I use Firefox almost exclusively anyway and will see how well it works.

And if your feedreader doesn’t find my rss feed automagically, let me help you:
