Saving Pocket from Full Text blocking

Finally figured out this workflow workaround for getting full text articles onto Pocket (and on to my Kobo) from websites that won’t share full text webpages via RSS.

  1. Read Email Later
  2. Connect to Pocket.
  3. For problematic websites, from RSS reader (I use Inoreader) use the email share shortcut and use your Read Email Later address.
  4. Connect Pocket to Kobo.

Some examples of why this is useful- makes boolean search triggers possible on sites with rudimentary search functionality like Kijiji, you could pair down all kinds of feeds that have way too much noise to pay attention to like local events feeds, and this essentially compliments Google Alerts by allowing you to do the opposite of using search triggers.



Taking your life back from technology

I’ve always been a reluctant consumer of twitter and social media in general, with a strong preference for RSS feeds that allow for batching incoming information. This was a very practical discussion of implications of social media addiction in the business world. Apparently the average American adult between 16-64 spends 3 hours / day on social media sites! At the very least the author is spot on suggesting one of the easiest decisions to make is to at least remove social media apps from your phone..
