I’ve written about how to follow a blog on flipboard before but wanted to do a single post for the HBX Core Blog as I’ll soon be starting HBX Core May 2016 cohort.
You can follow the HBX Blog or any other blog on your Flipboard app by searching for a blog’s rss feed url.
To find a blog’s rss feel url, either click on the blog’s rss link or icon if listed on the footer. If an rss link is not provided, simply right click on the blog and select View Page Source and look for “rss”.
You can follow me on Flipboard at https://flipboard.com/@yesi79.
I’ve never been much of a blog reader (or writer) but when I became inspired to read more business blogs by @ErikBison‘s post on business podcasts I decided to try and keep up with a few blogs. I wondered how best to “subscribe” to a blog from a central location. Being an avid Flipboard reader and curator I wondered if I could use Flipboad for gathering blog feeds. Turns out, there is an easy way but it appears to be a somewhat “secret” and behind the scenes.
Here are a few simple steps to follow and subscribe to a blog:
If you have a blog you’d like to subscribe to, simply grab it’s Blog Feed URL. You can get a blog’s feed url by simply tacking on a “/feed” to the blog ur, usually something like http://okdork.com/blog/feed/
Can’t find the feed url? It may also be under “wp-rss2.php” or “/?feed=rss2”
Once you have a blog’s url, simply copy-paste it onto the Flipboard App’s search texbox and hit search
The result should be the blog’s feed, simply tap “Follow” once you’ve opened it.
