CBC Words At Large

CBC has a subsection on their website, CBC.ca/wordsatlarge. I discovered it in the intro section of my daily headlines email. I like receiving the CBC Headlines email because sometimes I miss the morning news on the radio.

The subsite has some interesting content on literacy, bestsellers and a blog. But there doesn’t appear to be a RSS feed for the blog so perhaps it’s just labelled a blog. I read almost everything in a RSS Reader so it’s unlikely that this subsection will be a regular visit for me. What about you? How do you read blogs: visiting the actual blog pages or reading things in a Reader?

I’m a feed-reader reader. I use Bloglines (http://www.bloglines.com) and like to be able to sweep across the stories I want to stay up to date with, then read the full version if something interests me. On occasion I do visit the blog, like now, when I want to make a comment, or, like now, when I see that I haven’t read a few posts from a writer I like.

Commenting is not available in this weblog entry.
