There are a variety of ways that you could do this.

  1. Create a list of articles of interest. The best place to do this is in a sandbox that you've created specifically for this purpose. Click on "Related Changes" from the Tools menu (on the left sidebar). This will give you a list of recent edits to articles linked to from this page. Clicking on "Atom" on the Tools menu (on the left sidebar) will give you an RSS feed which you can subscribe to using an RSS reader

  2. To follow all articles in an existing Category on Wikipedia, navigate to the Category page and click on the "Related Changes" link on the sidebar. Then follow the steps in (1) to subscribe to the RSS feed.

  3. An alternative is to simply add the articles of interest to your Watchlist on Wikipedia. You can then create an RSS feed from your watchlist, as described in (1).
