Import your Feeds from Another Feed Reader
I really consume news that covers the technological advancement on this planet and for this, Feedly has been my only feed reader.I read articles on feedly a lot. I follow and go through all the technology news feeds updated by my subscribed services on Feedly. It also enables me to export all those subscriptions as an OPML file on my computer so that, I can further import them to any other feed reader.
I strongly follow this workaround as I regularly test new readers but, I do not want to miss my subscriptions. I did the same for Start.me also as it supports this type of importing process. Now, I get all the updated feeds on my Start.me home page and importantly, with an unchanged categorical hierarchy.
