Hello, my name is Janice and I do not use Bloglines.
There. I said it. Admitting I have a problem is the first step to recovery, right? So I had to come forward and admit that I have been too disorganized and busy to get started with Bloglines.
I tried a couple months ago. I went and set up an account. I read the site. I added some of their recommended blogs to try it out. And then I never went back. I know. It is pathetic and stupid.
As I hear of all you saving time and never losing blog addresses because of your faithful Bloglines habit, I felt too ashamed to admit my problem. I knew I needed Bloglines, but I just couldn’t make it through the difficult, early adjustment days. I am too set in my ways.
So I am going to try it out for real this time. I am going to give it a chance to work for me.
But I still have some reservations and questions.
Would you all mine if I asked you some Bloglines questions?
- Do you select to have the entire post showing or do you just the use default option when subscribing to a blog?
- When you are checking your blogs via Bloglines do you tend to comment less?
- Do you click over to the actual blog only when you want to leave a comment?
- Do you use the Bloglines Subscribe Button?
Because I like to see each blog’s unique design and I try to always comment, I have wondered if I will like Bloglines. How do you deal with these issues?
Or have you decided against Bloglines and chosen a different feed reader?
Or are you like me, and still visiting blogs the old fashioned way?
I am looking forward to your input.
Oh – and one more thing. Since I am currently setting up my Bloglines subscriptions, leave me a comment and tell me to add you!
I make no promises that I will remain forever with Bloglines. I only promise that I will give it a try and that I will ultimately find myself a blog reading system that works for me.
