Welcome to the new daily blog. In this blog, our editors will share their favorite daily finds from the web. Check back each day to see what treats we've served up - or better yet, add our RSS feed to your daily news reader!

**What's an RSS aggregator or news reader you ask?

An aggregator or news reader is an application (desktop, web-based, plugin) that allows you to subscribe to “feeds” of weblogs and news sites.  Usually, these applications are scheduled to check and see if any of the sites you have subscribed to have been updated and if they have, the new version of the site (usually a post) will appear for you to read. Aggregators are great because they bring weblog updates to you, instead of you having to actively look to see if your favorite reads have been updated.

There are a number of popular aggregator clients that run as desktop applications.  On Windows, one of the more popular desktop clients is FeedDemon (, which makes it easy to add feeds and view them in a newspaper-style view or as individual entries.  A similar view that can be integrated directly into Microsoft Outlook (not Outlook Express) is available with the NewsGator ( plug-in.  NewsGator can also be configured to allow posting directly to TypePad from within Outlook.

On the Macintosh, most users prefer NetNewsWire ( as their desktop aggregator, and NetNewsWire Pro adds the ability to post to TypePad directly from within the application.

Once you download your news reader, just drag our site name into your subscription list and you'll automatically be updated with the daily pick!
