I've seen a "weekly news" digest produced with Delicious and RSS previously.

When you come across something useful for the weekly news, you share it
on delicious. Then you configure a blog posting here:

and you get a daily digest of links with the description text you put in
when saving the link.

You could also make it weekly with a small script that queries your RSS
feed and then sends a formatted post via RPC to your blog that you run
on a separate machine via a cron job.

(Just a suggestion to lighten the load).
