BlogReader Bleg

Here's a quicky for the collected wisdom of my legionsdozensseven fans family members who read this. Does anyone have a recomendation for a good, easy to use blog reader/aggregator type thingee, so I can have the wonders of the intertubes delivered directly to me, presumably via truck driven by Senator Stevens?

I'm pretty happy with Google Reader. It's not perfect, but it's good and free and updates everywhere, so you're not tied to one PC and don't have to deal with syncing. Plus I expect they'll be improving it steadily like they have their other web services.

Incidentally, that reminds me--can you set your rss feed to full rather than excerpted?

Done.

I really like Newsgator because that plugs directly into Outlook email. The RSS feeds come in as if they're email. For those of us corporate types that live in their Outlook client, Newsgator is great.

Also, Outlook 2007 has an RSS feed aggregator built into it. Microsoft again muscles some poor little company out of the action.

I definitely prefer full feeds as opposed to summary feeds.

I'm a bloglines user, mostly because it's the first thing I tried. It's an online service, free, so it's accessible anywhere, and the interface is pretty decent.

Thanks for the RSS fix, too (once you start using a reader, you'll feel the same way....). It will cut down on your hit count, I'm afraid, but not your readership.
