Still trying to grok del.icio.us

I’ve managed to figure out that I can subscribe to my del.icio.us bookmarks as an RSS feed. What I can’t figure out is whether I can use this to do my daily blog reading. Let’s say I’ve got a bunch of bookmarks tagged “blog”. What I want is not the list of blog links in my RSS feed (http://del.icio.us/rss/cstokley/blog), I want the new entries on those blogs. How do I do that?

    You read the new entries with a feed reader. Please tell me you don’t actually visit every blog website every day.

    For my blog, the most popular feed readers are (in order of popularity):

    Bloglines
    My Yahoo
    Newgator
    Google Desktop / Google Reader
    Rojo
    …and everyone else

    I’ve found that My Yahoo, Google Desktop, and Bloglines are all very usable.

    I am using an RSS reader, but right now when I want to add a new blog, I have to add it to both my RSS reader and delicious. I’d like to have delicious be the source for the RSS reader. Make sense?

    Okay, I think I understand. You want to just bookmark it to de.licio.us and your feed reader will automagically pick up all the feeds in your de.licio.us feeds category.

    Sounds like a slick trick. The usual way to import a list of feeds is with an OPML file. If there’s a way to easily generate OPML from your de.licio.us category then maybe that would be a way to start with this. It would still require a manual step to do the OPML import, I think. Hmm…. some thought on this will probably result in a solution, although programming would be required. What do you use for a feed reader?

    Go visit Freshblog and leave a comment asking about this. I betcha John there knows the answer.

    Sorry about misunderstanding the question earlier.
