Google Reader

I've been having such trouble with BlogLines that I gave up and decided to give Google Reader a try. It's pretty painless. You can export your feed list--folders and all--to an OPML file, then import it into Google. Let's see how this one works...

I fiddled with Google Reader, but didn't care for it. It's very similar to the GMail interface adapted for RSS, but it just didn't feel right to me (while I, unlike you, really like GMail).

YMMV, of course.

Fortunately, there are more web-based RSS aggregators out there than you can shake a stick at, so even if Reader doesn't suit your fancy, you're not out of options by a long shot.

I really like Google Reader - the distributed nature (access it from anywhere, remembering your 'state') and the ability to share feeds is very useful. It has excellent availability and the feed management options are sufficient for most people.

I'm about to give up on Bloglines myself. It's been months since I've received an update from the BoardGameNews RSS feed even though Eric alerted Bloglines of the problem ages ago. I tend to like all that is Google so I'll likely follow your lead.

I've contacted Bloglines four times to resurrect the BoardgameNews.com RSS feed with no success. I don't understand the problem, and the Bloglines folks have said little in their contacts with me other than "Thanks for letting us know. We'll work on correcting the problem." Very frustrating...

Google Reader has worked like a charm for me in terms of reliability and usability.
