Not sure where to start?
You Need Feeds is happy to provide starter packs of feeds on a wide range of topics and interests. Download a starter pack, import it into your feed reader, and you’ll be instantly subscribed to a bundle of feeds on the topic of your choice.
How Starter Packs Work
Starter packs are OPML files, a kind of file that bundles several feeds together in a convenient package. To use a starter pack, download the pack and import it into your feed reader (the process for imports varies from reader to reader). Pick as many starter packs as you want - there's no limit on how many you can import.
