Here’s a page with a nice list of different LDS RSS feeds you can subscribe to. It includes feeds from lds.org, lds.org News Room, BYU Speeches, and much more. It has links for Feedburner, MyYahoo!, Google Reader, Bloglines, Newsgator, and MyFeedster. For those of you who don’t know what RSS feeds are, it stands for Real Simple Syndication.

Editor’s Note: I found this unpublished life hack from the original creator of MLH, Brett McKay. I’ve added the technical details, but it’s a great tip that also works for wedding receptions (which I’ve done) and other events that are held in the church cultural hall. —Tevya I remember the days when Church dances required bringing in someone’s clunky home stereo to the cultural hall so the kids could dance.

Widgets are small programs that can be designed to do a variety of things such as give you the weather, update you on the news, or tell you when your favorite blog has a new post- all without opening your web browser. There are a few LDS themed widgets in their widget gallery. My favorites are the LDS quotes and BYU Radio widgets. One of my favorite widgets in the gallery is the photo frame widget.
