It's a very odd thing. I have about 17 or 18 blogs that I follow on a regular basis. I've had them in a stack in my favorites of my browser. No, not everyone updates everyday or even every other day, but it took about 15 or 20 minutes to check each one manually. I finally updated to letting bloglines tell me which ones had changed since yesterday. Total time spent checking my blog list? About 30 seconds.

And somehow, that leaves me very flat. Exactly the same amount of new material, much less time spent on it; sort of like biting into a non-fat, no-calorie, no-taste croissant. No substance at all.

Ah, but bloglines strips formatting and makes the fancier blogs EASIER to read!

You're right. And I can see that that would be a benefit. It doesn't show me the comments though, and sometimes I have to click through and catch up. On some blogs, the comments are almost the best part ;-)
