I’m not totally sold for now, since new sites have to be submitted and reviewed, but the review process is opaque. However, it’s a nifty way to see tons of new posts quickly, and also to share what you’ve gathered with the masses. Yeah, it’s another meta list of potential meta lists, but I’m trying to keep mine down to blogs that post original information or discussion. So, you probably won’t find tutorial sites on my page. Feel free to co-opt my list or use it to seed your own.
Scott Kelby posted this little tidbit about collecting various feeds together. Right now, I’m trying out Alltop.com as blog-gathering site. Here’s the deal: you register, then search for feeds to add to your page. It doesn’t work like FeedBurner or the like (I have loved using Google’s Reader for a couple of years), but instead offers a collection of sites in different categories which you can follow. You can select individual sites quite easily, but the sites on Alltop are individually reviewed before being displayed. I presume this may have something to do with discouraging spammers and other low-quality marketing efforts.
