RSS rocks

I just set up my RSS reader using Google's reader app. I don't know why I didn't do this earlier. It's especially useful for the iPhone, which is pretty slow at websurfing. Basically, an RSS reader lets you "subscribe" to as many blogs as you want, and puts all of their posts in one place. So you don't have to surf over to each blog individually, and download all the ads and formatting. I do miss the individual look of each blog: DailyKos isn't the same without all the orange, I expect Digby to have a yellow background, Atrios' should be on pale blue, etc. But the efficiency is well worth it.

Dude, even your wife had RSS before you! But then again, you do have a very geeky wife.

LJ's rss reader lets you set colors for individual blogs (well, unfortunately, just the side-bar with the title, not the text of the blog itself). I'd be surprised if Google didn't have a similar feature.
