I've found that, while I follow more than one blog--individual's blog, not comic sites like the Beat and Robot 6--I look at one of those blogs far more than the others. The reason is pretty clear. Carl's blog, Ramblings of a Geek, is listed on my blog page. I don't have to go to the dashboard to see updates. So I've edited things to add a new list, in the left margin, of three blogs I follow. Blogger has a gadget designed for this purpose, but I couldn't get Guns And/Or Roses to work using it, so I went back to a simple link list.
