Sea kayaking blog aggregator

I’ve set up a web site which automatically collects news from sea kayaking related blogs through their RSS feeds.

The site is at http://www.paddlingplanet.com/

The idea is to collect all the sea kayaking related blogs in one shared news stream so you only have to look in one place.

My hope is that it will make it easier for newcomers to the sea kayaking world to discover new kayaking blogs, and for old-timers to stay ajour with what is being written on the various blogs.

The web site is updated each hour based on the contents of the RSS feeds of the included blogs. No content is copied or stored on my server for any longer than it appears in the blogs RSS feed. The web-site also presents the blog posts in aggregated news feed in several formats.

If you like the idea I would like to ask all of you for a bit of help launching this site. Help could be:

  • posting on your blogs about it,
  • adding it to your blogroll,
  • telling other sea kayakers about it
  • or telling me of blogs to include in the subscription list.

For you as bloggers, this can be yet another way of getting your posts out to a wider audience.

  1. What a great idea!
    I am just about ready with setting-up my newly bought mini-multi-mega PDA/GPS/NAV/COM/PIC/MOV/MP3/FM/WMIE gadget. I just set up the newsfeed option. And now let the floods arrive!!!

  2. Hi there,

    I think this is a great idea. I’m a blogger on life in northern Michigan, and while my blog needs some attention the majority of it regards kayaking the great lakes in the area in which I live. I’d love for my blog to be added to this list and will certainly add the list to my blog regardless.

    My site address is:

    Thanks,
    Tim

  3. Hey Rene! Thanks for leaving the comment that led me over here! This is very neat, I can’t believe I hadn’t stopped by before.

  4. Hey Rene,
    I was wondering if you wouldnt mind adding my blog to your site, It covers all aspects of kayaking, but my main focus of the site is my up and coming expeditions around the Great Lakes. I include all of the planning details of these trips so that others can see how to put a trip together and execute it as well as use my work to run their own expeditions or day trips on the lakes (including Lake Champlain my home lake).

  5. I think that is brilliant idea. It’s more easier for me, and to all your visitor to look for kayak related blogs. Just like you, I also love to read and search about kayaking.

    More power to you and good luck!
