My Alltop - Create Your Own Digital Magazine Rack

Alltop, the online magazine rack for blogs, released late last night a new service called My Alltop. My Alltop will allow you to build your own collection of blog headlines from all of the blogs that Alltop lists. To understand how My Alltop works you should know that Alltop lists blogs by keyword categories. For example, Free Technology for Teachers is listed in the education category. On each category's page, blog titles are listed followed by the five most recent stories from that blog. My Alltop will allow you to select blogs from a variety of categories and have those blogs' headlines displayed on one page. You can see my My Alltop page here. If you look at my page you will notice that I have combined blogs from education, rock climbing, and technology. I have embedded below a video overview of My Alltop.



Applications for Education
My Alltop could be a good tool for students to keep track of developing stories for current events classes. My Alltop also provides teachers and other busy professionals with an easy way to scan many RSS feeds at once.
