I miss RSS Reader too!

Some days ago, I read a blog post about RSS Reader in wilcosky.com. It was one of those moments you think someone is talking the exact words are in your minds. So I read it completely and commented to thank him and show my agreement.

Thanks god, finally someone write something about it. it’s a very vital tool to surf the internet. I completely agree with the article. I think there is nothing more to add. Just as a matter of fact, I use the reading list of blogger.com as my RSS reader: free and infinite number of URLs.

my comment on that post

RSS Reader is a cool and handful tool for those people need to check hundreds of blogs and websites each day to see if they are updated. Without them, we have to check each blog manually one by one, which is almost impossible.

  • For more information, take look at this: Wikipedia

As Billy says, RSS Readers are now rarely used. One reason is people use social networking websites as an alternative. Nevertheless, we still need them.

I remember the time I was bullied with aggressive and sometimes offensive words, just because I said social networking websites are limited tools for doing very specific things!

In compare with 5 – 6 years ago, these days I see more people who accept this fact that social networks are just social networks and they are not the answer for every question. They are alternative for blogging, social contacting, email marketing, online business platforms etc. they could be used only for some of our needs.

It’s the right time for us to take a deeper look at our “online” tools to see if they are used in a proper way. Surfing Instagram, Facebook or any other social networking site/app for hours every day don’t help us to be informed and knowledgeable.

Speaking of following favorite blogs/websites, we know some people tend to bookmark URLs. But it does not work! Because it’s more like throwing something into a closet, which is always locked. You throw things into that closet to prevent losing them but actually, you lose it. You may even barely remember you have that thing! As you see, it makes no difference.

Another tool, which is brand new and vastly being used called “push notification”. How many people feel comfortable around attack of push notifications, which interrupt them while they are doing something on the web?

I myself have activated only very limited number of push notifications on my browser. The rest of the web are “push notification block”.

I see push notifications as sudden calls from strangers in moments that are not truly right moment to answer.

One another disadvantage about push notification: any time they appear in your screen and you, for any possible reason, close them immediately, how do you know it was sent by what website/blog?

Beside RSS Reader, I like to consider email subscriptions as a really useful and proper tool.

For me, as a reader who doesn’t want to lose any possible piece of information, RSS Readers are the right answer.

Currently I use blogger reading list as my RSS feed reader, which is free, and you may add unlimited number of URLs.

To introduce two other RSS Feed Reader I suggest inoreader and feedly.

Mark Manson newsletter: 3 Ideas That Could Change Your Life

I’ve signed up in dozens of hundreds of websites’ and blogs’ newsletters. And I read them all right after I received each of them.

You may find it insane but that’s right! I’m crazy about reading more and more artists. The point is I choose blogs and sites carefully. they have proved them they have proved themselves to me as informative, useful and readable contents with mind-blowing ideas. So why shouldn’t I spend time on waiting them!?

One of the must-to-reads in my list which is Mark Manson newsletter so-called “Mindfuck Monday”

The right idea at the right time can build a career, save a marriage or bring years of happiness.

Mark Manson

As we know Mark Manson from best selling books such as “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck”, I am sure you already have heard the name; but I doubt if you have signed up in above-mentioned newsletter too.

If so, good for you. If not, move your a** and do it right now: Mark Manson Newsletter

In the last issue of the newsletter, which I received it 2-3 days ago, mark has announces his last book “Will”.

Read it here: An Indomitable Will

It’s the biography of Will Smith. Without any shadow of a doubt, I’ll find it inspiring and mind-blowing. I am impatiently looking forward to it’s released in next November.

At the end of the day …

At the end of the day seems to have a straight meaning. But it’s an expression and its meaning is a bit tricky. It means the most important part of something.

First time I heard that I thought it exactly means at the end of the day! More I heard it in movies and here and there, more I doubt that I understand the right meaning.

I search to find what is going on. As you know it too, urbandictionary.com is the best source in such cases:

At the end of the day

1

An irritating verbal crutch, indicating closure or synopsis, for morons who are incapable of finishing a sentence without incorporating at least one tired cliché.

2

A saying mostly used by people trying to prove points without having any other intelligent way of expressing it.

You know what? I completely agree! Not all expressions and proverbs that are used by native language users are the wise ones!

There are plenty of such meaningless Idioms, which are used vastly.

Let’s more wisely rather as it’s common!

In order to learn real English, I used to read books like tales from Shakespeare.

Tales from Shakespeare Oxford Bookworms

I’ve started reading Tales from Shakespeare three days ago.

The book has entitled “Oxford Bookworms 2” which I remember I bought it when I was a first grade student at high school.

I’ve never been able to allocate time to read it till 3 days ago I took this one among all other book in my library, all by chance and started reading it there while standing up by the book shelves. And yes, I couldn’t stop myself from reading it.

The book doesn’t include full original plays of Shakespeare but it is a set of summarized stories based on plays which make it readable even for whom are not very advanced English learners.

It includes these titles:

  1. The merchant of Venice
  2. The taming of the shrew
  3. The tempest
  4. Julius Caesar
  5. King Lear
  6. Macbeth

I was searching the audio version of the book this morning; although I didn’t find out any, I find out that MIT University has dedicated a website to full plays of Shakespeare. You could see the complete list of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare by click on the link.

During this pandemic, I used to read books one after another. I have explained it here: Coronavirus, No Facebook and I Am Stuck at Home

When You Are Eager

When you cannot give up a dream. When you do not pay attention to what people around you say. When you do not care how many times you fail. When you do not mind how long the path to success is; then it is the time you step forward in faith and confidence. It is the time you truly come your dreams true.

When you are not scared to be alone, or to be different. When you do not care if you seem creepy in others’ eyes. When you are not afraid to be lost, then it means you are passing the road less traveled. The road to your own success.

When you are eager enough to fight off any difficulty then you catch all you want.

I Am Not a Robot

I want to walk on my legs before it’s too late. I don’t like people do my stuff. Life is both too short and uncertain, so I want do my stuff myself. I Am Not a Robot

Before the pandemic of covid-19 occurred, my friends looked at me in a strange way, each time I was telling these sentences. but now, everybody knows what I mean.

No Plan B Anymore

Having any Plan B, sometimes, means there is no plan A at all (I said sometimes).

me

If plan A is such important plan that it couldn’t be replaced with any other possible plan, what does it mean to have a plan B then?

Sometimes, having a Side plan means, “I am ready to fail in plan A”. it means the plan A is not our main plan actually.

When we say we follow plan A and meanwhile we are working on another plan, it only means we’ve quitted plan A and we are afraid to facing it. So we play the wise guy role: I have a plan B beside of plan A, just in case.

I myself prefer not to think of any alternative plan at all and stick with only one plan rather to hide my fear of failure behind any second plan.

I want to try again and again and again rather changing the plans.

Fear is good if we face it. To be successful, sometimes, need to break the ship and got stock in an unknown island in order to build a brand new life.

if you are eager enough to catch the plan A only; if you have the guts to face your fears; then it’s time to have no plan B anymore. Let’s put an end to try and not to catch anything by concentrating on only one plan.

Nothing Happens To Us Too Soon

Since life is too short, nothing happens to us too soon. They may happen late or even too late, but nothing will happen too soon. There is no too soon actually. You are ready and grab the chance or you make that excuse and pass it away.

It’s a cliché to run away from situations.  Probably we want to cover our fear or any kind of these feelings. Generally, it’s because we are not ready which means we are not organized or skilled people, I think.

Too soon means wasting time. Too soon means not having any plan for the future. It means not having any strategy at all. Too soon means I am not ready enough to handle it properly. And it means I am not skilled enough to distinguish between right and wrong.

Open your arms to what comes to you. There is no guarantee unless you are sufficient. Sufficiency couldn’t be gained unless we are brave to face with reality. Experience is more like practice. As practice makes perfect, experience makes us powerful.
