If you spend half your morning checking blogs for updates, check out Bloglines. You can subscribe to all the blogs you want, and go to one website to access them. You can even download a Notifier that alerts you when a blog has been updated so you don't spend all your time checking blogs for new posts. I've only been using it for a few days, but I love it. If you use Firefox, you can add an icon to your Bookmarks Toolbar that lets you subscribe to a new blog with one easy click. I'm sure you can do the same thing with Explorer, but I don't know how it works. Check it out!
