How Can Notaries Easily Follow All of the Latest Notary Related News and Articles?

Allow me to clue you in on one of the most helpful tools on the internet. It is my understanding that RSS feed readers are far too underutilized by notaries. My guess is that most notaries don't realize what they are. Hopefully, after reading this article, you'll be well on your way to a more educated future in the loan signing industry.

You'll be happy to know that Google Reader is free. So the only investment required is your time. Feed readers were invented to in order to save you time. If you do things the way I used to, you have a lengthy list of websites you visit on a daily or weekly basis. You probably click on each link to read the latest information. Oftentimes, you visit a page that hasn't been updated, so there is nothing new to read. Here's where feed readers come in handy.

With a feed reader, you can see what sites have been updated before clicking. Not only that, but you can also read entire articles right within your reader. Some, like my own site, only provide a preview of the article. Either way, you will save time by only checking the sites that have been updated and only reading the articles that interest you (if you still have to click through to the site).

There are several feed readers available but I have found Google Reader to provide the most comprehensive instructions and the best ease of use. I appreciate it's simple look. Some of the other readers are more cluttered. But, for whatever it's worth, you can always check out the other feed readers.

Here are some step-by-step instructions to help you stay on top of the latest discussion coming from the best notary forums and blogs:

  1. Create an account with Google if you do not have one already.
  2. Once your account has been created you will need to login to Google Reader.
  3. Read through the 3 pages on Getting Started With Google Reader.
  4. Still confused? Read the Common Questions About Google Reader.
  5. Now you should be ready to begin adding subscriptions.

Here's my subscription suggestions for mobile notary forums and blogs:

There are many more excellent mobile notary public resources available but they don't have rss feeds (or at least, I can't find them). If you frequent a notary website that has a feed and isn't on the list above, please contact me and let me know. I'd love to add them to the list. Also, if one of your favorite resources doesn't provide an rss feed, bug them until they do. Then let me know!

I hope this article was helpful! Don't forget to add my RSS feed to your reader to continue to get the latest posts from
