How do you read your blogs?

Stephanie

I have been using Google Reader for ages to read my blogs and am wondering if there is a better or more efficient way. I am subscribed to over 100 blogs and I read through them about once a week or so. I only have one blog delivered via e-mail and that is Daily Om.

How do you read your blogs? Is it via a feed reader, e-mail, an App that I am not yet aware of? And is there anything we could do to make Rhodia Drive more friendly towards your preferred method of delivery?

  1. I have two different Google Reader accounts… one for certain types of info and one for my once- or twice-a-week viewing. I just looked at the stats… my “daily” one has 158 subscriptions and the weekly one has 91. I probably need to switch some from the daily to the weekly!

    I also generally email the ones I really want to read and save to myself too… then go through that and really pour through the ones that I want to look at more closely.

  3. I use Reeder on the iPad. It synchs with Google Reader and lets me read my RSS feeds when I’m offline. I like that the whole post in your blog shows up in Reeder. I have a wi-fi iPad. Some sites just show a little bit of the post and then you have to click through to their website to read the rest, which isn’t a good thing if I’m not near a hot spot.

  5. I still use Google reader. With its shortcuts, I can skim my blogs quickly, star the ones I want to come back to in depth, and get back to being productive. I don’t want a lot of features and there’s enough on Google Reader for me to be effective with my online reading.

  7. I have a long daily commute and read posts on the train with an iPhone app called Byline. It syncs with Google Reader and is the best app I’ve found for reading RSS feeds offline. If I see a post I want to keep for reference, I send it to Evernote or Instapaper. I agree with what others have said here: Rhodia Drive posts display beautifully on the iPhone screen and I much appreciate that the entire article shows up in the feed.

  9. I use Feeddemon and Google Reader as well as the poster above. Feeddemon syncs up with your Google Reader account, so the combination works very well together.
