    Blog (RSS) Readers

    I've bookmarked a few blogs, but finally going to a blog RSS reader. Just started messing with the Google reader and it seems pretty decent. Wondered what some of you use (and if you're on a Mac, are there better Mac specific readers?). I see I can read them in Mail, just curious as to experiences using it.

    One thing that prompted this, I was trying to add this blog (Zeroplusplus) to Google reader and it does not recognize the blog.

    I use Google Reader extensively. No complaints at all. Easy to organize, gives you stats/trends, etc

    Re: Blog (RSS) Readers

    Google reader... it goes with you everywhere... The stats can be interesting.

    Here is my summary:
    From your 89 subscriptions, over the last 30 days you read 6,794 items, starred 7 items, shared 4 items, and emailed 0 items.

    Re: Blog (RSS) Readers

    So I wonder why it won't read the blog I linked in my original post - different blog format?

    I get a feed not found error. Seems like a site issue.
