Tracking Packages through Bloglines

Lisa asked about tracking packages on Bloglines. (The package just arrived; when I told the guy “I tracked you through my RSS aggregator!” his eyes got jittery and he backed out of the patio and ran to his truck…)

It’s easy… if you know how! Ain’t that always the case? Here’s what you do:

1. Get your tracking number
2. In the Bloglines left pane, select Add
3. In the right pane, select Package Tracking
4. Select your carrier
5. Add your tracking ID just like any other feed

Most of the time it works great. I’ve had trouble adding some tracking numbers, but I haven’t pinpointed the problem.

After the package arrives, remove the feed.
