I am interested in SL fashion a lot, and I read many fashion blogs and metafeeds. However the output rate of all those blogs is massive - a day without monitoring the feeds leaves you with 100-200 unread posts or more. A few weeks ago I used Yahoo Pipes to rinse, clean, sift and sanitize the fashion feeds so I get a dupechecked and filtered result. That was tremendous help and brought down the daily posts to ~30.
Over the weekend, I refined my process further, and now have a complex pipeset that still rinses, cleans, filters and dupechecks the feeds, but now only shows the images from the posts! Except for the very few designers whose blogs I follow seperately, what interests me from the fashion feeds are the images. If I like something, I click through to the original post to see what the reviewer wrote, and to see what stores are actually featured.
So, here we go - please feel free to use and clone the pipes, or to simply subscribe to the resulting feeds:
- 7 sanitized and dupechecked fashion megafeeds, including the text: webpage, RSS feed
- The same 7 feeds, but images only: webpage, RSS feed
- Freebies and Dollarbies listed on Xstreet SL and SLUniverse/SLShopper: webpage, RSS feed
