That’s not for clicking!  If you want to subscribe to a blog, you’ll need some sort of feedreader application that periodically checks the feed for any changes.  To make this easy on feedreader developers, there are a few standard way to generating feeds like RSS and ATOM.  Some feedreaders are web based, and some are programs that you install on your computer.

If you’re new to blog subscriptions, here are a few feed readers that you might want to check out:

Bloglines – Web based, easy to set up and easy to use.  Of course, if you’re only subscribing to one or two blogs, you might as well go directly to their page, but if you read a lot of blogs, then it might be more convenient to group them all together on one site.

SharpReader – I haven’t used it, but it looks fairly popular as far as these things go.]

ThunderBird – This is what I use.  ThunderBird is primarily an email client, but it also does a fairly good job of handling subscriptions.  If you already use ThunderBird for email, then this is a no-brainer.  (If you use Outlook Express for email, you really should think about switching too.)

Sage – Sage is an extension for Firefox.  If you use Firefox, then this is a great way to go.
