RSS Aggregators

There is a new kid on the block, and its called Bloglines. Its a server based aggregator which will be funded by sponsorship and advertising.

I've been trying various aggregators for a while now and haven't found a desktop solution that suits me. Bloglines looks good and I'm currently trying it out. Apart from usability its major benefit is its blogger friendliness. Instead of thousands of desktop aggregators coming to your site and downloading your feed they get it once and make it available to all of their users.

Here endeth the obligatory six monthly meta-blogging post.

Uncanny. This morning, FeedReader decided to throw away my subscription list, *again*. So I thought, so it, I'm going to try something else.

And lo and behold, you inform me of Bloglines. Call it Fate, call it syncronicity, call it what you will.
