I really like RSS feeds. I appreciate getting just the latest information on various sources. It can be overwhelming however if you subscribe to too much! I also had a bit of a problem figuring out how to get the blog reader set up so I would get automatic updates. The directions were not very clear. I didn't want to put a link on MY blog so everyone could see what I was reading, rather I wanted a link for myself from my blog so I could check new posts from there. Instead, I just added it to my favorites and will have to remember to check it.
I'm sure I missed something. Still a useful tool, however!
