I just heard about this and it has changed my life! There are 19 blogs that I read on a regular basis. Usually, I go through my favorites or my live feeds on my browser to see if those blogs have been updated...
well, google has done it again!
www.google.com/reader is a fantastic place where you can enter the names of the sites/blogs that you keep up with on the left hand side, and just like an inbox for email, it highlights them when there is a new post.
so, if you want to read blogs, or news sites, or whatever... you just log into your reader and click on the ones that have new posts.
