Quick Question

I don't think I ever mentioned this on this blog, but I am in market research. I spend my day, well, doing research. But for some reason, when it comes to internet and blogging things, I can never seem to find what I'm looking for. It's a wonder I was able to create a header on my blog. So, I'm posting this, with the hope that someone, anyone really, might have the answer. Here are my blogging questions since I still feel like a newbie:

-Is there any better way to view blogs I like, rather than to hope my browser remembers them, or to list them in my blogroll?
-Is this what a site feed is for? What exactly is a site feed? How does it work? Do peopel really subscribe to feeds?

Any answers are appreciated, thanks!!

Stick my head on this guy and you'll know what I look like trying to figure this all out...

Yes, and I just discovered bloglines. I'm thinking they're kind of the same thing? Like blogspot vs. typepad or something...Thanks Nanikaa. You have been so helpful today!!

I use NetNewsWire Lite (Lite version is free!). That's how I read your post today! :)

It's a download little program to install on your computer!

I have heard about Bloglines, for people wanting a Web based application. I just have so many accounts everywhere and trillions of passwords to remember, so an application was just the right thing for me! :)

Thanks Janick, it's good to know I have options. Bloglines seems pretty good for now, but I will consider a downloaded version if I need to later on.

Have a great rest of your weekend!
