What feeds them? Daniel DiPiazza, Writer

Daniel Di Piazza
What is your passion?

I am a digital entrepreneur and the founder of Rich20Something, where I teach young people how to break out of the boring 9-5 and create income doing what things they love. I have a passion for productivity and I use writing as a medium. I am a freelance writer for various blogs and journals and a writer at Huffington Post. You can follow me on @Rich20Something.

What do you use feedly for?

As a writer, I have to read in order to write great posts. I use feedly as part of a 90 minute reading session in the morning to inspire and inform my writing. I start by reading my “Blogs to comment on” category where I have listed all the blogs I want to be active on. My goal there is to leave comments on as many articles as possible — that’s an important aspect of establishing my presence and giving back to the community. When it’s time to write an article for my Huffington column, another site or my personal blog, I scan through the “Things I want to teach” category where I’ve developed a customized list of blogs and sites about marketing, persuasion, freelancing and negotiation. After an idea is sparked, I head over to my Omnifocus app on my desktop to jot notes down. I don’t always use the notes right away, but they serve as a pool of ideas to pull from later. With this method, I never have “writer’s block”.

Do you have any tips you would like to share with the feedly community?

Create a category that reflects personal or professional goals. In my case, I want to be really active in my space. So I have created a category called “Blogs to comment on” with all the relevant blogs. Every time I go in this category my goal is to leave as much valuable feedback as I can and build relationships with other authors and readers.

Try this segmentation strategy out for yourself.

For instance, if you are about to get married, try creating a “Ideas for wedding” category. Alternately, if you want to work on making your garden more beautiful create a category called “Tips on gardening”. Then use the categories you’ve made to systematically parse information that you’re looking for.

The biggest benefit of this method is that it is much easier to focus on the topic at hand when all the information is pre-selected for you. If you’re anything like me, it’s very easy for you to start reading a business article and end up looking at cat memes. Short circuit that tendency before it happens!

    For that feature we need please you/vote, really?!

    WTF. Sorry for that. Feet for boots – information to search/to find, essential.

    I changed my mind – i leave this service and will use google reader till it’ll be closed and after SEARCH for a better service.

    Good buy feedly!!!

  2. :) Small mistake – good bye. But in fact feedly want monetize their reader, to force BUY the premium product (f.e.: search feature, …).

    But as long as there is free specials, I will not spend money for a rss reader.

    Good bye (:

  3. Can we maybe not have this stuff in a feed about Feedly? I want to know about the development, not ads about how great everything is. Thanks!

    1. Agreed. I came here for information about the current road map, found a couple of vague references to some poll that concluded with “we have a few ideas” (wow) and then I saw this.

      Mind, I even made the effort to check out three of Mr DiPiazza’s recommendations; I hadn’t seen such a backward collection of fluffy self-improvement blogs since the last decade.

      My standard policy is: “if you disagree, move on” (i.e. don’t comment with dismissive rants that waste my time and energy) but I had to chime in here: this blog is called Building Feedly; let it deal with that subject matter and that alone, please.

      I’ll look for self help tips elsewhere, when I need them.

  4. Definitely consider that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to understand of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked whilst people think about concerns that they just do not recognize about.

    You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and outlined out the whole thing without
    having side-effects , other folks can take a signal.
    Will probably be again to get more. Thanks

    A big-animal photographer Amos Nachoum, who made trips
    to see mefafauna in the wild, shared that swimming with great sharks
    was a spiritual experience and requires much patience and vigilance.
    Online promotion can be a hard nut to crack, specially, in case you have no idea how to crack it.

  7. Heya i am for the first time here. I found this board and I to find
    It really useful & it helped me out much. I hope to offer something again and aid others like you aided me.
