I've only recently got into reading blogs on the internet. I have been navigating to my favorite sites to check for updates daily. I know that you can subscribe via an RSS feed, but I've yet to do that for any blogs.

I'm assuming that there is some sort of software (open source or free) that can help with managing blogs in the same way my podcasts are managed. Do you use anything?

I use google reader. Has worked for me. Allows you to put everything in folders and is very manageable. If you don't have a gmail account to access apps you can set one up. Then just click on reader or go to reader.google.com and sign in. Then add feeds. Voila!

Google reader is the only one I've ever stuck with too ... I like its interface with igoogle or whatever the personalized home page is called. Why not give it a try for a few days and see if you like it.

Although it's not free, FeedDemon for Windows is a fantastic RSS reader; I've been using it since it first came out.

On the Mac, you can use Safari or Firefox to keep track of your RSS feeds.

In Windows, the latest version of Internet Explorer also has a feed reader/subscriber, and of course you can use the RSS reader built into Firefox as well.

I use google reader when I'm away from home, but mostly I use Akregator in KDE on linux. I find it fairly easy to use and organize.

I used to use Bloglines, but got frustrated with its lack of updates and ease of use. Now I'm Google Reader all the way, and would never look back...

I guess I'll have to give Google Reader another look. A year ago, Blogline was better. Now that I am working on my personal finance blog, I am thinking about using pfblogs.org as a general reader.

Sage reader for Firefox is my choice. Simple, elegant, and does what I need and want.
