Summary

After you have an RSS feed reader and know how to subscribe to RSS feeds, how do you find feeds? There are a number of  ways to find RSS feeds on the Internet after you have exhausted Search Engines and Directories.


Detail

This is a random set of opportunities to find RSS Feeds on the Internet in addition to Search and Directories.

RSS Reading Lists

OPML - Outline Processor Markup Language. Reading Lists

When you subscribe to a number of RSS Feeds, the list of RSS feeds is typically stored in a OPML (Outline Processor Markup Language) file, which is another type of XML file. This OPML file is your reading list. Sometimes bloggers will refer to "my OPML" to mean the list of RSS feeds they subscribe to and read.

See OPML (Outline Processor Markup Language)

OPML RSS reading lists provide interesting options.
