gPlusRSS Turns Your Google+ Stream into a Blog Feed

Have you noticed what's been happening with Google+ lately? I have; the 8 month old social network isn't growing into a network so much as it's becoming a blogging platform.

Not all that many people are using gPlus, but I do know a few that have been posting longer and longer updates. Here's one, for example. They're effectively turning their public stream into their blog, and I'm glad to finally have a way to follow them.

A small tech startup has just released a new service, and it's one that the 8 month old social network has needed ever since it launched. Sign up and they'll build you an RSS feed for your public updates.

This isn't so important to gPlus users, but the many who don't use the platform are probably going to love it.RSS feeds are much more web friendly than gPlus' streams.

Once you build the RSS feed, I'll be able to add it to gReader. Other folks will be able to add it to apps like Pulse. The author can also feed it into services like dlvr.it and then automatically do tweets and FB updates.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. pretty cool, very nice idea.

    i’ve been following Felicia Day https://plus.google.com/110286587261352351537/posts because i found something funny she said one day and then noticed that she had made it into a blog like you mention. and now she hosts a hangout for her book club friends which is pretty funny as well as a new spin on book club.
