Getting Started With Bloglines

Have you made the jump to a newsreader? Many people use bookmarks for their blog reading. Some rely on a service like blogrolling to show them when blogs update. The problem with either of these systems is that it's slow and inefficient. Both require you to load the full page of each blog simply to read the latest posts. The advantage of using a newsreader is that it automates the process of reading just the latest content from your favorite blogs.

I often recommend those just starting out with newsreaders try a free web based reader to get their feet wet. Bloglines is the service of choice. Steve Ruebel of Micro Persuasion points to this fine tutorial that will help you get started.

The conversations are happening. Bloggers are talking about your company, product and customers. Shouldn't you participate?
