Thank you all for your comments and emails on the ‘who do you use’ post – I really appreciate the fact that so many of you joined in the discussion.
Now blogging isn’t the be all and end all of my life, it’s something I enjoy and like lots of things in life if there is an easier way (to enjoy other’s writings) I’ll certainly be in it 🙂
The basic blog roll on the sidebar seems to be popular – there is a blogger/blogspot style that updates when a new post appears. It was the constant checking blogs for updates that used to annoy me. WordPress has a reader but doesn’t appear to have the (obvious) updating blogroll facility right on the blog page.
The various ‘ feed readers’ seem to appeal to different bloggers. Some offer just blog feeds, others news feeds as well. Sometimes I need a fresh look at things so after reading all the feedback on that last post I sat down again and looked at the pros and cons of the feed readers I subscribed to.
Oh, you should have heard the chuckles coming from my side of the room when I realised the one I thought didn’t do it for me would actually function better if I used it correctly – so – I decided to persevere with The Old Reader
Thanks again – Bye for now
