Blog Keeping

I'm afraid my blogroll is a bit unkept. Most of my browsing is now done via Google Reader through RSS subscriptions. Currently I keep track of 63 blogs through the great Google Reader. (Yes, I'm aware of how pathetic that sounds.) That's more than double what I list on my blogroll. I'm not sure when or how or if I will change my blogroll. Though it does seem a bit unfair to those of you I've only lately discovered.

Does anybody know of a way to sync the two?

I use the shared widget from Google Reader. The advantage is that I can share individual posts from particular blogs, so readers not only get a blog, but also know what it is that I found interesting. The disadvantage is that the list is no longer a semi-permanent list of folks that I like.

This works for both highly active blogs and for sporadic blogs. For highly active blogs, it cuts through the clutter. And for sporadic (but great) blogs, it alerts readers to great new content.

Fred, thanks for the heads-up. I'm going to give it a whirl.

I am more pathetic because I follow nearly 100 blogs and that's having cut down some...yeah...but in my defense a lot of them are art blogs where I just look at the nice pictures.

I reduced the number of Catholic and other Christian blogs narrowing my focus to like attracts like and doing away with a number that I used to try to stay up to date with for the sake of online friendships and oh, I don't know why.

I also use Google Reader and find it fast and functional. Obviously your blog is one of the feeds I track.
