Google Reader, RSS & a List Post

posted Apr 11, 2011, 4:14 PM by Keri-Lee Beasley
This week, we're going to be making the most of our Google Reader - one of the many Google Apps we have available to us with our Google Apps account. Here is a simple video to explain RSS:

Task 1

Go to and sign up for an account using your Google Apps account. You need to put your full Google Apps email address as the username, and your regular Google Apps password as the password. 

Task 2

  • Add subscriptions to the blogs of 3 of your friends
  • Add subscriptions to the blogs of 1 person from each of the other G6 classes
  • Make sure that you have an even gender split in your Google Reader

Task 3

Organise your RSS reader into Folders to help you manage/view content.

Task 4

List posts are very popular types of blog posts. You will probably have seen a list post before, e.g. Top 100 YouTube Videos of All Time, or 10 Hottest iPad Apps, or 5 Things You Didn't Know About Linkin Park.

To link in with your English/Humanities unit on Poetry, I would like you to compose a blog post on the following topic:

10 Things I Know to Be True

Please take the time to think carefully about this list. Really craft it well. I look forward to reading them.
