(This is Part Two of a two-part article, focusing on some of the tools I use to stay informed. Part One served as an introduction to the technologies that make it easy to follow a large number of online news sources.)
I was so pleased to learn that several of you found Part One of this article useful! Some of you volunteered news sources that I am not currently following, and it was great to peruse them. Thank you so much for your feedback!
Here are some of the news sources I follow on a regular basis with comments where appropriate. Needless to say, some of them are in Spanish. As I mentioned previously, using an RSS reader will help you scan through large amounts of headlines in an efficient way. More often than not, all you have to do when you add a new source to your RSS reader is to enter the main URL for the news source and the reader will identify the RSS feed. Have fun exploring!

For iPad Users
Flipboard is an excellent application that allows you to select specific topics and follow them on you iPad. You can also use Flipboard online, but I find that the interface truly shines on iOS devices. Highly recommended!
Given my personal and work-related interests, I also follow dozens of news sources and YouTube channels related to crafting, Mac-related news, music, marketing, social media, photography, diy, technology, writing, cooking, health and movie/tv show downloading (the not legal kind!). If you have particular interest in any of these, feel free to contact me and I’ll be happy to share.
