I’ve been meaning to set up an RSS reader account forever, and now that I have I don’t know why I didn’t do it years ago! I guess I was waiting to find the “perfect” feed reader. I’m already a bit irritated with the bugs in Bloglines (couldn’t log in this morning, couldn’t access my clips after that, etc., etc.) But those irritations are outweighed by the incredible convenience of having all the blogs I want to read funneled to one place. I’m actually reading them now! I don’t know how long that will last though. Bloglines makes it more convenient, but reading all the blogs I’m interested in still takes an enourmous amount of time that I don’t really have. And I’m guessing that I won’t really find the time to get back to the clips I’ve saved to read later, especially as they start to accumulate over time.
I think the best use of Bloglines for me will be to make sure I’m not missing anything LIS related that I might want to think about for my library. I already emailed a couple stories to myself to remind me to add some websites to our Virtual Reference Center pages on our website.
