Here’s a great new resource worth using. It’s alltop.com. Alltop.com collects stories from “all the top” sites on the web. They have grouped these collections into individual Alltop sites based on topics such as sales, environment, photography, science, Muslim, celebrity gossip, military, fashion, gaming, sports, politics and automobiles. At each Alltop site, they display the headlines of the latest stories from dozens of sites and blogs.
Think of an Alltop site as a “digital magazine rack” of the Internet. Alltop is attempting to enhance your online reading by both displaying stories from the sites that you’re already visiting and helping you discover sites that you didn’t know existed. Their goal is simple: provide “aggregation without aggravation.”
The way it works is this: They import the stories of the top news websites and blogs for any given topic and display the headlines of the five most recent stories (except Moms.alltop which has fewer headlines because there are so many feeds). When you place the cursor over a headline, alltop displays part of the story so that you can decide if you’d like to read it. To read the story, click on its title. To go to the home page of the site, click on its domain name. That simple. Take a look and let me know what you think.
