I use a combination of tools that then make one easy to use dashboard for me to follow blogs and comment. The tools are Google Reader and Feedler (love my ipad for this kind of thing).
As I find blogs I want to follow, I subscribe using Google Reader and there I organize / curate them into “folders” that, for me are themes (internet marketing, SEO, etc.). I like Google reader because I can then “star” items I want to be able to reference later and can also post them to my fan page.
I have iGoogle set as my home page and have used their tool to set these folders up, individually so I can easily scan new material.
Feedler comes in when I really do my reading, in the evening. Feedler brings these subscriptions, organized as I have from Google Reader and my reading is even more enjoyable.
Using the folders, really is the basis of my system. It makes it easy to scan, update and query when I need an old post on a particular topic.
