RSS?

I'm a little bit slow on the uptake when it comes to web technology, I am embarrassed to admit. Despite this fantastical blog, I know, I know, how could I not be super web tech savvy? Ok well here's my question. I want to use an RSS reader to view all my favorite blogs. To be honest these days I just click on my blog page and then go through all of the links. This is such a pain because a lot of the times the blogs haven't been updated. Look, I'm not even supposed to be blog reading at work so we've got to make it as streamlined as possible. So my question to you dear blog readers is this, how do you read your favorite blogs? Do you RSS feed? I try to RSS feed and it automatically tries to add to my yahoo and guess what, I don't want to use yahoo! I have google reader but I find that it sucks too. A little advice would be much appreciated.

I use Google Reader and the "Next" feature described under the "Goodies" tab in Settings. Seems to work great for me. Basically, you drag the "Next" icon on the page mentioned above to your bookmarks. Then, when you want to read the next unread blog, click on that bookmark and it opens the next unread one you subscribe to - you don't need to be in Reader. It works great in Firefox, I'm sure it would in other browsers also.

I'm not sure if it works the same in Explorer (I use Firefox), but I just go to bookmarks and subscribe to this page, and it sets me up using the feedburner. Then, I can look at my bookmarks and just go down the list and it will show me the posts. That way, I don't have to go visit a blog unless it has a new post.
