I've never done a poll before but I'm curious whether most of my readers come directly to this site or use a blog reader service like bloglines.
I use bloglines myself and usually only visit the actual blogs when I want to make a comment. I cut down my bloglines subscriptions a while ago, intending to use the blog rings to get around to the blogs I like to check on once or twice a month - that hasn't happened.
Right now, I have about 45 feeds in my bloglines, when someone comments on my blog - I click on their profile and visit their blog if they have one, and try to occasionally get around the blog rings I belong to....but I still feel like I'm missing things.
Please take my poll and let me know how you manage to balance the desire to read the blogs that interest you AND still control the amount of time you spend on the computer.
