New Subscription Feed

I jumped into blogging last summer without knowing a lot about creating a blog. I decided I would just learn as I went. My new subscription feed is part of my learning curve. I set up the feed last week, and hopefully it's much more helpful. If you subscribed prior to last week, you may want to resubscribe - I'm not sure that you will receive the new feed otherwise. If you haven't subscribed, please try it out! Let me know what you think. Please let me know if there are any problems with signing up, too.

Why subscribe? I used to just keep checking my favorite blogs to see when they were updated. It was time consuming and often there were no updates. Now that I'm using Google Reader, I can just log into that account and all of the blogs I'm subscribed to are there, showing their updates. If there's a post I really liked and want to refer back to, I can mark it ("star" it) and I'm able to find it again. It also helps with the stats for my favorite blogs - they can show advertisers or companies with giveaways what the regular traffic is for their blog.

Do you use a blog reader? Why do you subscribe (or not) to your favorite blogs?
