Revised opinion on viewing aggregated blogs

  • Comments 7

Ok, I got it wrong.

Over the weekend I compared Bloglines, Blogdigger and Kinja and I wrote about it in a previous post and declared that Blogdigger did the best job for me.

Well I got a few comments, as well as observed the results over the past few days and I have changed my opinion. Bloglines does the best job, followed by Kinja and finally Blogdigger.

You can see the results for yourself:

  1. Bloglines aus .net blogger page
  2. Kinja's aus .net blogger page
  3. Blogdigger aus .net blogger page

Bloglines is almost instantly updated, as is Kinja, but there appears to be a bit of  time lag for Blogdigger (similar to feedster).

BTW - Thanks to folks who pointed out I didn't know how to drive Bloglines.

  • You did not know *then* but you do now. ;)

    It's all about learning. As said before, you might try out folders because as far as I can tell, every reader has feeds he like immediatly to read or some who can wait.

    To remove 'noise': using folders even with a few feeds helps structuring in clusters like
    news, podcasts, development etc.
    Like the ones on the right of this blog. ;)

    Just try the edit button at the top. One tip if you did not know this: You can hide feeds from your public view but this option (show hidden or not) is only available when you switch 'publish'. After that you can just set one blogfeed at a time to be privat.

  • What kind of lag were you seeing? We are putting some updates into place that should hopefully tighten things up, but any information you could provide would be helpful. Thanks for giving it a try.
