I'd like to suggest to you an online program that will make your blog reading easier. It is called Bloglines.

It is easy to go to a few times a day to see which blogs (you have subscribed t0) have updated.

Another little bonus is that sometimes folks create a post, then decide to delete it. If you don't happen to catch it on their blog, you've missed it forever. Or, in a case like today, someone accidentally deleted a post on their blog and I was able to pull it out of the Bloglines Archives and email it to him to get it re-posted on his blog.

Have you tried Google's "Reader"? If so, how does "Bloglines" compare?

I've been a fan of Reader since the minute I started using it, but I've never tried anything else. Any compelling reasons to check out bloglines?

I only used Google reader for a few days before I found Bloglines. I don't remember the aspects about Google that made me give it up in favor of Bloglines, but I'm sure they are there.

Bloglines features are easy. It is very "instinct" driven. It has add-ins for Foxfire and shortcuts for IE. It lets you export your list to a blog (or only the ones you want to be exported) and even lets other see your list of blogs you read (you can hide some of them).

Take a look; give it a try!
