The joys of using a blog aggregator
A couple of weeks ago I started using a web-based blog aggregator (which allows many of my regularly read blogs with RSS feeds to be scanned quickly). This has completely transformed the way I look at tracking what is going on and, very importantly, allows me to skip postings which are of no interest to me, without having wasted too much time scanning through acres of text.
I am using Bloglines, which I found fairly easy to set up and, a bit of experience gained, exceptionally straightforward and useful in practice. Link thru Shadowfoot acknowledged.
