I use it for all my bookmarks. But my workflow is a bit caotic: i place the bookmark as links on the desktop. From time to time I start a script that moves all bookmarks from the desktop to a zim Notebook, organized by date of link creation (see attachment). Soon (insert arbitrary tim in a distant future) I'll modify that to be a directory structure on the desktop that is also present in zim so that additional bookmarks are added at the corect subpage.

But I don't use RSS feeds.
