Sitecore MVPs blog, feed and Twitter list along with a combined RSS feed from Sitecore MVP’s blog feeds

Challenge:

Since starting of my Sitecore childhood, and till date. I always love to read and try what other Sitecore aficionados are posting! (Yes, I’m talking about you!). They really post loads of cool stuff, tips and tricks, new ideas, new things etc.

There are few blogs which you follow, and which you have subscribed. Now, what happens. Due to one or other reason. If you forget to check “What’s new In Sitecore world?”, you may miss few important things. Which you should haven’t missed (Don’t worry, same happens with me as well!).

One of the solution is Sitecore RSS Feed — most of you might be knowing that there is an Official Sitecore RSS feeds, syndicated, last 30 days, by Lars Fløe Nielsen, Sitecore (Strongly recommended!)

Now, there are a lot of useful posts comes via Sitecore MVPs and each one of them got their individual blog. Now, It will be practically impossible for you to check what each one of them posted.  And lot of nice posts comes from Sitecore MVPs [Obviously, that’s why they have been selected as Sitecore MVP :)]. But the Sitecore RSS Feed is not having all MVPs feed details.

Which is the challenge, and this post got a solution for you!

So, If you have all/few of following questions answers as yes, then this post is for you!

  • If  you would like to know all Sitecore MVP’s blog links
  • If you would like to know all Sitecore MVP’s blog’s feed links
  • If you would like to keep yourself updated on What’s getting posted by Sitecore MVPs? [What you are so busy that you are not able to keep your self updated? Come on, it’s as similar as you are driving car so fast, and you don’t have a time to fuel it! :)]
  • If you would like to get all Sitecore MVP’s RSS feed via one RSS Feed

Solution:

Derived Lars idea and created list of blogs, feeds and twitter handle from Sitecore MVP List (http://sdn.sitecore.net/MVP/MVPs.aspx) and created a Yahoo Pipe (If you haven’t heard about Yahoo Pipes, don’t worry – nice post on this)

SC-MVP-Blogs-RSS-Feed

Sounds great!?

Apologize in advance, If I’ve missed your blog. But all this information whatever I’ve gathered has been gathered via Gooogle and it might have happened that I might have missed your detail or Google might have missed me to show your details [First one, is most possible than the second one! :)]. If So, feel free to post me your blog link, blog feed and twitter feed via comments section. Will sync it ASAP!

All Sitecore MVP’s list along with Blog link, Blog feed link and Twitter handle can be viewed from here! (Derived from : http://seankearney.com/page/Sitecore-MVP-Twitter-List.aspx)

Just a note : Google is going to shut down Google RSS Reader. (Which is very sad news! I was a big fan of it! You too?!) But don’t worry Feedly is a good option! (Feedly has already seen an influx of over 500000 Google Reader users just in 48 hours of shutting down announcement of Google Reader by Google)

So, lot of stuff getting posted by Sitecore aficionados, and it’s getting delivered in your RSS reader. Now, you just need to read them and Most Important get your hands on it, and you and only you need to do it! (And I’m sure you will do it!)

UPDATE : 28-JUNE-2014

As promised and requests by Mike:

2014-06-28 15_14_01-Pipes_ editing 'Sitecore MVP Blogs Feed'

All Sitecore 2014 MVPs as well added in Feed — At this point of time, This is how Yahoo Pipe looks like. It took a lot me to add all these new MVPs. Because one Yahoo Pipe Union Operator supports only 5 Feeds 😦 So, to cover all of you, Have to add more union operators and made it working! 🙂 Something new learnt! (So, If you are also using Yahoo Pipes and facing Union threshold limit, Do add one more union and connect it to another Union!)

I tried to cover all MVPs. But in case If I missed you your blog/feed/Twitter Handle — Please give me a shout.

Total 157 MVPs Details are available from here : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?key=0AuSZJtbDBPCQdFZKaUIxZkhxZlFndk11c1NUZU84YkE&output=html [Green Indicates Added or Updated]

Happy Sitecoring! 🙂

    Note that the first two Pipes URLs appear to have changed.

    First one should be http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?_id=ZsFOz4a62xG9Py3Idbq02Q&_render=rss

    And the domain for the second should be changed to pipes.yahoo.com

    Broke at the end of May for me and I’ve finally decided to fix it.

    With Yahoo! Pipes being phased out in the next couple months, are there any plans to migrate this feed elsewhere / serve it in a different manner?

    Thanks!
