Using NewsGator Folders smartly

1. Why is it that Newsgator can’t always find the right feed when I use the Subscribe with Newsgator shortcut? It couldn’t find the proper link to even though FireFox and other browsers could. It’s just very frustrating.

2. I know a lot of people are coming up with great ideas about OPML and such as a way of sorting or weighting different topics – I use the Folders in NewsGator online all the time – it would make MY life (maybe others as well) a lot easier if I could assign Locations to individual Folders as well as specific blogs. For example, I have a folder called 10 Blogs I Must Read Immediately (which only has 3 in it right now) and then I have folders for FoxPro, Diversions, Microsoft, Podcasts, Tech, Product Stuff, etc. It works very efficiently as I can create my own type of Attention planning piece there – the only thing is – I wish I could have new blogs suggested for those different folders.

If the Folders concept grew just a little further with a “Suggest Blogs for this folder” feature and a separate “OPML” Feed for each Folder – it would make it much easier.

By the way, I’ve turned off NG Outlook and find I’m not missing a single thing thanks to the Online and Mobile editions of NGO. I LOVE Newsgator!
