Subscribe to this blog with Bloglines (full-text feed)
If you are a fan of smaller companies and prefer not to have all your accounts with the big boys and girls (Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, AOL, etc), then you might be interested in subscribing to this blog with Bloglines. Bloglines is part of Ask Jeeves, which of course is much smaller when compared to the aforementioned companies.
Bloglines has its own workflow, so if you are familiar with other newsreaders, you will probably need to spend a few hours with it before you adjust to its workflow and way of doing things. This can be frustrating initially but keep in mind Bloglines is a very popular online newsreader.
