i've been using bloglines to easily follow the many blogs i've been subscribed to for a couple of years now. however, i noticed with google reader you don't have to search for the rss feed url, just put the blog url in. i'm going to play around with it some more because there have been some blogs that for one reason or another bloglines could not follow.
i'm really starting to be a googlemaniac--my igoogle page has lots of neat gadgets, including feeds from our library catalog and a search box for our catalog, calendar, gmail, maps, etc--and now my google reader. it's one-stop shopping, my way to shop!
