Too many blogs

With all the free weblog services out there, and especially this one, it's too easy to make new blogs. I went through 2-3 author profiles on this weblog, and everyone seems to have created multiple weblogs. (me too for that matter). So how does one deal with so many weblogs? Reading them is bad enough, but aggregators like bloglines help too a great extent. It only takes about 20 minutes a day to catch up to approx 150 weblogs using bloglines, but heaven forbid one doesn't sit in front of the pc for a few days - it'll take hours to catch up!

For those on the other side of the fence, actually writing the damn things, group weblogs are one solution and they work great for weblogs such as this one, but personal weblogs are a different matter altogether.

Aside: Zunaira, you were wondering/debating about the usefulness of a Spider weblog... well I (or someone else) could easily turn the above into an article. Wouldn't have thought of it if I hadn't started writing this post.
