Comments: Bloglines Clippings

I like that everything looks the same on Bloglines; I read blogs because of the writing and the ideas contained therein, not because of the blog's design.

And yet, working under the theory that every blogger picks the design for their blog because it seems to "fit" them or to "suit" what they want to write about, I maintain that the physical look of a site changes my perception of what's written there.

I agree with Anne. Bloglines is great for checking who has updated and to find the items that look interesting. But of course I go to the original site for reading the posts.

I must say I find it almost rude to do otherwise. It is like inviting somebody for dinner at your home and when they arrive they stop by the door: "hey, here with the grub, quick, because I have to go somewhere else." I am not sure that is the sort of guests that I want, personally.
