Kinja vs. Newsgator

My friends are asking me why I like to read my RSS feeds on the web. Email is so much better they say.

I use an email-based reader (Newsgator) and a web-based reader (Kinja). There are other readers for email and the web, but these are the two that I use.

After thinking about it for a little bit, I think its because I like to blog when I read blogs. And I use TypePad which is a web-based blogging tool. So I am in my browser when I write my blog and it’s just more natural for me to be in my browser when I read blogs. It makes linking to other blogs easier for me.

What I’d really like is a tight integration between my blogging tool (TypePad) and my web-based feedreader (Kinja). That would make life a lot easier for me.
