On the advice of Jared, I've been using Kinja to keep tabs on non-xanga sites of interest. It has a lot of potential, but nearly five months later, I'm still not impressed. I realize that it's still in beta, but the service is very slow at picking up updates, and seems to have more trouble with some for no apparent reason. Other than some improvements in the ways you are able to manage your digests, I've seen very little in the way of tangible change. Glancing through my own list, there are sites that reportedly haven't updated since october, however a vist to the site in question will tell a completely different story. Nice try but give me RSS, which, thanks to the latest version of Thunderbird, I can read just as easily as I do my email.
