I also skip through my feeds once in a while, but I read all the headlines, meaning that I keep in touch with those blogs.
Wed, 14 Feb 2007 17:25:39 +0000I use 4 feed flares and I don't think it clutters up anything. I'm also going to start using Feedvertising to see how that is, and hopefully it doesn't clutter anything either, but we'll see. As far as RSS readers being the most loyal, I think it depends. As bloggers ourselves, we most likely have a lot more feeds that we subscribe to, so when you log on in the morning and you see over 200 or 300 new posts (I use Netvibes,) you tend to skip over them more easily. I think a regular reader wouldn't have so many, and would therefore be more interested in each one. What do you think?

When you read through those posts you will need to skip through all those flares several times, which might be annoying if you are not interested in emailing the post, digging it or adding it to delicious at all.
