Alltop – the RSS Feed Smörgåsbord

During my daily 8-hours-a-day in front of the computer, I came across a site called alltop.com.  Alltop is a website that compiles RSS feeds for various topics of your choice.  This is how they describe themselves,

The purpose of Alltop is to help you answer the question, “What’s happening?” in “all the topics” that interest you…We do this by collecting the headlines of the latest stories from the best sites and blogs that cover a topic. We group these collections — “aggregations” — into individual web pages. Then we display the five most recent headlines of the information sources as well as their first paragraph…You can think of Alltop as the “online magazine rack” of the web. We’ve subscribed to thousands of sources to provide “aggregation without aggravation.”

Everyday I sift through blogs to try to find relevant content for Events.org, so this site really got me excited!  So long story short, I put together a customized Alltop page for Events.org that includes topics such as Associations, Tradeshows, Blogging, Nonprofits, Event planning, etc.  Check it out!  I hope you enjoy the information as much as I do.
