Chicago Magazine’s 171 Great Websites, Ready for Your Newsreader

As I noted last week, the February Chicago Magazine has a cover story on “171 Great Chicago Websites“. It’s a great selection of Chicago online resources and Scott Smith over the Time Out Chicago blog got tired of waiting for the online version of the story and made an intern type up the whole list as clickable links. I thought, well what if you wanted to import all those websites, at least the ones with RSS feeds, into your newsreader or RSS aggreator? So I did the work for you — here’s a list of 129 RSS feeds in an OPML file (not all the sites had feeds, but some had more than one). If your newsreader has problems importing OPML files with groups, here’s a flat OPML file.

And before you start asking “where’s <insert my favorite Chicago website here>?”, remember that this is Chicago Magazine’s list, not mine nor Time Out Chicago’s. Well… except that I did include feeds for both TOC and ourselves. I figure it’s the least we deserve for all this typing.

Update: It only made sense (in the kind of way that this sort of project doesn’t make any sense at all) to make a file for the 60 or so blogs mentioned in Time Out Chicago’s blog issue as well. OPML file with groups or flat.

    Thanks for doing the hard work on this. I imagine 1/3 of the links I’ll delete, 1/3 I already subscribe to, but that last 1/3 is gold!
