Create a subdomain - planet - that aggregates feeds for Jolla, Sailfish OS, Mer and Nemo devs like for example http://planetkde.org/ https://planet.gnome.org/ or http://owncloud.org/blogfeed/

Then there's no reason to subscribe to dozens of different feeds, where you also get to read about other peoples weird hobbies ;)

It would require some setup, but hopefully an absolute minimum of maintenance.

Planet KDE uses Rawdog and Rawdog RSS

It is also quite easily possible to turn Wordpress instance into planet - that should be even easier to maintain.

ownCloud.org used a WordPress plugin for this for a while, but it didn't work out very well. And TBH isn't it overkill to have an entire WP installation to aggregate some feeds.

Well, I was searching for how to setup planet year or two ago and Wordpress plugin was the only decent php option. Rest required python/ruby/perl/whatever which I consider more overkill than Wordpress.

python/ruby/perl/whatever are languages just as php is. WordPress is a blogging/CMS platform built on php.

python/ruby/perl/whatever are languages, but the difference is that any monkey can deploy php and wordpress. To deploy other, you need somebody who has some basic idea what he is doing. You can get php hosting really cheap, while for other you need at least VPS. And RoR is quite resource hungry :-)

There are Planet feed aggregators, but focused mainly on developers and not comprehensive:

Unfortunately still no "End User" Planet of likeminded Jolla blogs.
