RSS from Websites
Many websites and blogs have RSS which facilitate adding their blog or website to a feed reader.
Simply select the web address of the site you would like to read frequently and add it to the reader. Whenever that site publishes new content it will appear in your Feedly or Inoreader.
More convenient than email in many cases as one can either view just headlines or a summary or full articles.
This screenshot shows some of today's articles appearing in my Feedly. There are plenty of YouTube videos to get you started using either Inoreader or Feedly. Here's a comparison of seven free feed readers to help.
