Well, I tried to open an account in Bloglines, however the page was temporarily down. Will try again later - pretty "down page" lots of coloured spots and dots.
In the interim, worked out that my blogs I had signed on to follow are able to be read in Google Viewer, another link mentioned in the online tutorial, so went into the account I have there and added the Cesar Milan blog. What else for a dog fan? Obvious choice really. Will await the return of bloglines with bated breath!
