“How do you find time to read all those blogs?”

That’s a pretty common question. We do spend a lot of time scouring the web for new tips — but that is only a small part of our job. One trick we use to streamline our perpetual hunt is organizing RSS feeds into different bookmark folders in Safari. Think of this as creating your own personal clipping service.

Safari shows the total number of new posts in each bookmark folder. That means you don’t have to visit a blog until you know something new has been posted.

Setting up Safari’s Bookmark Folders.

If you’ve read our tip on Subscribing to RSS news feeds in Safari, organizing those feeds into bookmark folders should be an easy next step.

Click on the little bookmark icon on the left of Safari’s bookmark bar. This brings up Safari’s bookmark list where you can create folders in the Bookmark Bar section.

Viewing Collections of RSS Feeds.

One nice results of organizing related feeds into separate folders is Safari’s ability to show all the results together in one list. Choose View All RSS Articles from one of your folders pop-down menus. You’ll be presented with a long list of all the recent postings from all these related blogs.
