Any insight would be appreciated.
- because who knows if it has updated.
- if there are two or three posts since my last visit I can’t tell at a glance
Basically if ppl can’t be bothered to put out an RSS feed they can’t be bothered having me as a reader. That’s ok; there’s plenty to read, and not everybody needs to cater to my wishes.
I have various “major” blogs (e.g. vox).
I get corporate / tech updates like abseil, omnigroup etc — low volume and useful.
I follow personal blogs, some from people for whom it’s part of their business (Herb Sutter, Bartek, Heather Cox Richardson, Matt Stollar...),
Many things that are sent as “email updates” are available as RSS feeds too which is more convenient than cluttering my mail. Substack mailing lists for example are all available as RSS feeds.
Used to check the weather, forget the url. =P

has 4 links daily, high overlap with the sort of stuff on Hacker News.
I also collated some of these sites that I think are really useful and segregated them based on their domains. Hope it is of great use for you readers! (:
• Twitter (great for following people or sites you find on HN)
• Subreddits for specific interests (like /r/Unity3D or /r/Hololens)
• Podcasts, like:
- Indie Hackers (https://www.indiehackers.com/)
- Software Engineering Daily
- Startups for the Rest of Us
- Artificial Intelligence w/ Lex Fridman
- How I Built This
• YouTube subscriptions
... but did you mean news websites specifically?
Thanks so much for the support!!
Following them since 14 years. Amazing source of news about latest advancements in space (both civil and military use).
Wish they owned ddg.com
Google News (I couldn't find a clutter free alternative that gives an easy snapshot of news about India/world)
Brief (aka Morning Reader)
https://overcast.fm (I listen to podcasts from the web app when on the computer, I wish they had a native desktop app)
https://theoldreader.com (I've given up on Mac RSS reader apps)
Twitter, Reddit, Some private trackers, https://lobste.rs, MeFi, Vimeo, IMDb (almost daily)
And yes, wikipedia :)
