I've been following developments with RSS for a while but for some strange reason--OK, I know what it was: no time--I never personally got on the RSS bandwagon as a consumer. My my, I've been missing a lot! It's taken me less than 24 hours to become completely grateful for Bloglines. It's saved me time, given me more useful information than I'd otherwise have, and generally made life a little better, which is about all we can ask software to do, isn't it?
There are a bunch of RSS readers to choose from, including Kinja, which was spearheaded by the notable Meg Hourihan. But she left Kinja shortly after launch, and I just have this kind of icky feeling about contributing to the nascent Nick Denton empire. But it does have a clean UI so maybe I'll give it a try with all that extra time BlogLines has helped me reclaim.
