I've done a little more research since I posted my "discovery" of all the cool things that Bloglines can do for me. As I said before, I've had my Bloglines account for a while, but it became so much more useful when I realized (Duh!) that I could add ANY website or blog that I wanted to keep up with, not just the sites that have the "subscribe in a reader" button.
There are tons of readers! Granted, some of them are not free, and some of them will only aggregate certain types of feed. But, like Bloglines, Google Reader and Feedburner are free and customizable. Pretty soon, they are likely to merge since Google just acquired Feedburner. There is one called Feedmarker which appears to be comparable as well. Windows even has a free downloadable reader, Freereader3.
There are benefits to all of the readers, and since my Bloglines account is already set up with ALL of my favorite websites and blogs, I'm not going to change at this time. My point is, if you haven't tried using a reader, you're missing out, and I don't want any of my bloggy friends to miss out on anything!
