Bloglines - not quite as handy as I had hoped
I have 160 feeds I'm tracking, it's hard enough to keep up with all of them without Bloglines constantly marking things unread that I have read already ... why does it do that? What's the deal? On top of that I've notices a pretty big delay between the time content is added to an RSS feed and the time it gets added as new to my Bloglines. Yesterday I visited Library Stuff because I couldn't figure out why there wasn't anything new in Bloglines and there were 2 or 3 (I can't remember now) new articles there that Bloglines didn't tell me about until this morning.
Anyway, I'm going to keep using it, but I'm just wondering what the deal is ...
Overall Bloglines is a good web-based RSS reader, if you can stand the constant read/unread flaw.
You can also try rojo (www.rojo.com) or Searchfox RSS reader (rss.searchfox.com). They are good alternatives to bloglines.
I do like bloglines most of the time, it was just really frustrating starting out and re-reading posts before I realized they weren't really new.
Hmmm ... I guess it's possible, but it's not always the same feeds ... it's different ones. I was just ranting really, like I said I like it and it helps me keep this blog up to date :)Post a Comment
