I use a feed subscription app called Feedly. Feedly allows you to subscribe to feeds from different news sources, blogs etc.

My friend uses Flipboard. Flipboard asks you to describe the things you’re passionate about and handpicks content from around the world.

Feedly forces you to say, “These are the people whose opinions I respect. No matter what they say.”

Flipboard forces you to say, “These are the things I care about, no matter who is speaking.”

When you only listen to a handful of people, you’ll never see the complete picture.

When you only follow a handful of topics, you’ll never discover new passions.

It’s dangerous to do one without the other.
