More on reading weblogs

Frank Schaap asks What do you read?

Q: When you first visit a new weblog, what do you read? Of course, you take in the whole design, maybe scroll up and down a bit, but do you a) read the main content/main entries, b) just read some headers, c) read the sidebars, d) read “about me” info, e) some combination of the above, f) EVERYTHING, g) something else entirely?

Q: On repeat visits to known weblogs, what do you read?

Q: Do you read weblogs primarily in your browser or in a RSS newsreader?

1. I read entries that catch my attention and check categories that look interesting. Then if the blog looks promising I check the sidebars and “about me”. If I’m still interested I subscribe to RSS feed and give it a try. The rest is described in reading weblogs.

2/3. I read most of weblogs using RSS readers (two at the moment). I use browser only to read really interesting exepts in full or for a follow-up reading from blogs I read via RSS.
