I've been using Bloglines for a little over two weeks now, so I thought today would be a good time for an update. I have to say I'm really liking it. I was afraid that there would be some missing feature that would have me looking for a different aggregator to try out. However, I have been nothing but pleased with Bloglines, as it has met my every need thus far.

Using a news aggregator has saved me plenty of time, because I'm not clicking through the links on my blogroll on a daily basis anymore, only to find that a select few have updated. Now I know which of my favorite sites have been updated, and I am able to read new content very efficiently.

A Bloglines feature that I just made use of today is the ability to save an entry. I read Mark Pilgrim's entry on How to make a good ID in Atom, and quickly realized that I should be employing one of the methods he outlined in my Atom feed. Since I don't feel like implementing the change now, I clicked the handy "save" link at the bottom of the entry (in Bloglines) and the entry will reside there for easy access until I find the time to read it again and use the information to update my feed.

If you're looking for a good news aggregator that is accessible from home, work, or wherever you might be, give Bloglines a try. You won't be disappointed.
