…here’s what I really want:
Yeah.. I finally understand RSS. I’ve been having a fun couple of days finding RSS feeds to interesting news sites – and even better, blogs of my coworkers and counterparts around the world.
As I was reading through some of the Microsoft Employee blogs (again, because I’ve subscribed to them) I thought… “Hmm.. this is cool because you are notified when something is new. Kinda like being a part of an email alias. But… even more like emails generated by a rule from a sharepoint site…”
Then it hit me: I want SharePoint to do RSS! Simple. Give me a little orange “RSS” link on any / all sharepoint pages I can copy/subscribe to so that I’m notified if something new shows up! And while we’re at it – let’s just use SharePoint as a home base for our blogs, too. Why not?!
Okay. That’s my wish. You folks build it for me or let me know where I can get it if it’s already available.
Thanks to some great feedback, I see that my wish has been granted even before “I thought of it first!”… <sigh>
Here’s a great summary of solutions on Daniel McPherson’s blog:
Also a resource that Jim Duncan shared about how Collutions, Inc. does it on a public SharePoint site.
Dang. I guess there's nothing not already invented. <heh>
Thanks for sharing your link and those solutions!
SharePoint based blog has been invented too :-)
Yep. Thanks Jim.
