I keep all of my RSS feeds in
Google Reader/FeedDemon/Feedly but generally keep them closed most of the time to avoid distraction. However, I have a few important feeds that I need to keep track of.
Can anyone recommend a really tiny RSS reader/notifier for keeping track of just these important feeds. It is essential that it is able to alert me when new items are posted. I'm on Windows (XP, Vista and 7). Ideally it should be light; i.e., it shouldn't be a resource hog if possible.
I used to use an RSS-to-email service (can't remember the name now) which was absolutely ideal, but that went defunct. So, a free RSS-to-email service would be a good solution, if one exists. Update: it does now.
Failing that, can anyone share any strategies for managing this situation? Surely others must suffer the same sort of RSS overload and have need to keep track of a few essentials? Is there perhaps a feature, or add-on, I've missed in
Google Reader/Feedly that can email me when certain feeds are updated?
