I started using Bloglines at about the same time I started this blog so that I could keep up with what others in the field were writing about … but I'm starting to wonder if it's really the best option.

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 (http://www.rojo.com) or Searchfox RSS reader (rss.searchfox.com). They are good alternatives to bloglines.

  2. Thanks,

    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.

    It's probalby not bloglines. It is probably the RSS feed or the service used for that feed.

  6. 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 :)
