I love Google Reader, too. It wasn't always like that, though. The first time I tried to use? I hated it. I had a different method of checking things and trying to move to GR was an absolute pain. I went back a year later and things worked so much better, helped me a million times more, and just plain 'worked' for what I needed it to.
I'm a big fan of Google Reader and I use it every day!
You and P.J. convinced me to start using Google Reader, but I must admit that I use iGoogle more. My iGoogle home page lists a few of the more frequently updated blogs that I like to read. I just don't follow enough blogs to warrant the reader yet. I have you listed in my "favorite reads," on my blog and that is sufficient enough for me. I plugged you into my reader too, but I don't check it very much.I'm "old school" like that!
