Google Reader (link in title) is an alternative to Bloglines, and I've found it works very well, maybe because Blogger is also part of the Google empire. It's an easy way to log into your list of favorite blogs and and you see only a list of those who have posted something since the last time you visited. So there's none of this clicking on a link to see if so-and-so has finally got around to posting something, waiting until the page loads, then...nah, nothing new yet again!!! (Yes, I too have been guilty of having the blogging blahs, and am still recuperating)
Of my list of just over 20, only a couple do not work under this system, even though they're using Blogger. So I'll just have to remember to manually check their blogs.
