Use Blogger, Be Ignored
Every now and then, I come across a blog I want to skim regularly. When its easy to do so, I add it to my list. Which is to say I drop the RSS feed at NetNewswire, and I then at least see the headlines.
Blogspot/Blogger doesn’t make it easy to add RSS to your site. Of the roughly 120 feeds that I read, 2/3s are in RSS. Of the remaining 40, half I either like the graphical layout, or want to be reminded of who I’m reading as I read. The other half are not available as RSS, and half of those are in blogger. The bookmark group is getting pretty full, and there’s a high bar to getting on that list now. Most blogger blogs don’t make it.
