Tech Tool- PDF Your RSS For Free


What is this contraption???

So you want to turn your blog into a document that you can email to clients? It’s quick, free and no account is required through HP’s Tabbloid.com that turns any blog’s RSS feed into a PDF that is emailed to you that you can then forward to the clients in your email list.

The drawback that I see is that it says “Tabbloid” at the top so it may not suffice for you, but you could always use a pdf editor to take those words out and put in your own.


Too Easy:

Simply click the big blue “Get Started” button, enter the URL of your blog, your email and your desired delivery times. You don’t have to set up an account or buy anything, you’re already done. It will gather all your articles, put them into a PDF and magically, you have what looks like a newsletter to send out to clients! Here’s what it looks like up close:

    Thanks for the tip.

    Would love to see your top 10 lists for 2008 with regard to tech, marketing etc.

    if you actually do a post along those lines, I don’t expect, nor will I accept any compensation for this suggestion

    Great find! This is similar to a service I heard about called Feed Journal wwww.feedjournal.com that turns your feeds into a newspaper format for reading.

    I tried feedjournal but found it to be less stable and was cumbersome to set up. I don’t like that I had to eliminate feeds that it automatically tried to feed me (and often wouldn’t *let* me opt out of), sometimes it duplicated the feed so I would get the same story two times in a row, but it is a really pretty final product, so it’s most certainly worth checking out! Matt, have you had any of these issues?

    Now THIS is something I could use! It’s free and I could hard print a newsletter based on my blog for my small amount of people on my COI list! Cool and fast…

    good fine, Lani.

    I can see it as helpful way to encourage folks to subscribe by RSS.

    This is what I get when I go to feedjournal.com…

    Very nice. I have invested in the Adobe Acrobat so I can make the changes but to insert videos into the PDF it requires the upgrade to Adobe Professional Extended Pro which is like an extra $200+. Well worth the investment to save on printing in my opinion.

    Jim: https://www.feedjournal.com/ works for me.

    Lani: I do agree that it can be a bit cumbersume to set up. One features they just added ist he ability to fed a multi-author multi-category blogs like AG and create newspaper versions of the blog.

    Jim, I just went there again and it worked fine, it sounds like their servers were down when you checked it out, but like I said I don’t really use it so I can’t speak to it. I’d give it another shot. 🙂
