I have skipped over "Flickr" with the intention to play around with it during some free time this summer.
It has taken me some time to get used to the thinking behind RSS - but now, I think it is the best thing around. One major problem with following so many blogs, which I have posted on my home blog, is the time it took to scroll through the list on a regular basis. Not every posts every day, so there was a lot of wasted time, as well.
No more. Rather than using Bloglines, I tried out FeedReader, and have settled on Google Reader.
Any of these aggregators will search through all the blogs to which you have subscribed by clicking on the little orange image. I go to one site, Google Reader, and scroll through that list - the titles in bold have not been read. If I want to go to the site, I can, or I can read the latest info right there. It's great!
