Create an RSS feed to your Gmail for the Blogs you love to read

IFTTT is a great solution to create a reading list of blogs and news, right in your Gmail. Here is how to set it up.

1) Get the url for the RSS feed that you want to follow. For most WordPress blogs, that is usually the address of the blog plus /feed. So this one would be http://vipstatususa.com/feed
2) Open your IFTTT account and create a new recipe.
For THIS: Use FEED and enter the url that you discovered above.
For THAT: use EMAIL.
Modify the email subject to include (_RSS)
3) Go to your Gmail and create a filter that filters for _RSS
Have that Filter ‘Skip inbox’ and label ‘RSS’

That’s it! Now, when a new article shows up in the feed that you’d like to follow, the link to the article is in your gmail, filed under RSS.
