I have found Google Reader easy and efficient for beginning bloggers such as myself. After logging into your Google account, click on Reader, locate the subscription box, and you’re good to go. The user interface is simple and allows you to search feeds or paste a feed url in the subscribe box. Once you have subscribed to a blog you then have options to categories them in the way you see fit. As simple as it is for myself, the more advanced blogger may require further options. I have found a site where some complaints and suggestions might be helpful.
