The better way to find new sheets!

Sheet Exchange's Latest Sheets Live Feed (if you haven't used it yet) lets you find out about the latest additions to the site faster.

Today this feed was upgraded to a brand new system. You can now have the live feed in the language of the site. Just make sure the site in the language of your choice before you click on the little feed icon (it's the little orange icon at the bottom left corner).

For those who have no idea what this is, a live feed (or a Web Feed) is a format that lets you add content to a feed reader.

As fancy as this may sound, a feed reader is simply something like My Yahoo!, Google's Personalized Home Page, etc. that lets you add news, etc. from different sources.

My own favorite feed reader is Google Reader. Blog readers will find is extremely cool.

If like me Firefox is your favorite browser, when you click on the little orange feed button it will ask you to pick your favorite reader. Both Google home page and Google Reader are there.

* Firefox itself has a feature called live bookmarks which lets you add feeds as bookmarks, but I don't like it much myself.
