I follow quite a few craft blogs (52 at the moment!) and realized (several months ago) that it's too much work to check each blog for new posts!
Enter Google Reader. I use Google for just about everything, so this fits right into my personalized home page. I get a list of all the new blog posts, and can pick and choose which ones I want to read.
If you don't use Google, there's also Bloglines.
Hope this saves you some time! If you do use one, be sure to add my blog ;)
