I just couldn’t get myself into a routine using an RSS aggregator, instead idiotically refreshing my favorite weblogs throughout the day. What a waste of time. With blo.gs, it’s easy to set up a list of your favorite weblogs, ordered by how recent they’ve been updated. It becomes a portal of sorts — the first place to check before reading your favorite sites. It feels more natural to organize this stuff right in a browser, and I much prefer to read posts in their actual environment anyhow.
Also found on the same mezzoblue discussion — a link to Phil Ringnalda’s brilliant bookmarklet that’ll search blo.gs for the current page that you’re on. Then you’re just one click away from adding to your favorites list as you browse.
