Aggregators

I'm really not sure how I want to use this blog. The other day, I started investigating blogs and was surprised to find how sophisticated they were. So I thought I'd try it.

So far, I have signed up for two aggregators: Bloglines and Pluck.

I like Pluck's Outlook-like setup and the fact that the post content is displayed directly. I don't like Pluck's way of taking over and its over-zealous advertising. I also wish one could delete a post after reading it without having to click on delete-all-read-posts. One should be able to delete posts one at a time directly. I also don't like all the default subscriptions Pluck sets up. It makes it more of a full-time job keeping up with them all. I know one can delete them, but they probably shouldn't be there in the first place. Also, the Pluck default is to have multiple folders. In general, that's probably a good idea, but I don't want to spend so much time following that many blogs that I need to organize them into folders. Right now, I have 17 subscriptions. That's a lot more than I expected, but I still don't want them organized into folders.

I like Blogline's simplicity. In it's case also, it would be nice to be able to mark posts as read. If one moves from one subscribed service to another, all the unread posts in the first service are considered read. That isn't good.
