I follow various news and blog sources with Google Reader, as it lets me approach my reading in an organized and trackable manor.

This site is one of very few I have run into on the interweb that does not allow me to track individual writers or even the main page. There are a few writers here would I would really like to add. I understand this may have been done by design to push people to actually go to the front page and click the ads, but if not it would be a great feature to consider adding. There is also a way to have adds appear on the Google Reader feeds.

Thanks.

Lee, had no ideal I could dop that. Let me look into this. The way its set up wasn't intentional or to drive ad clicks.

Good stuff. I have no idea how the technical aspect of the reader works, but I follow things ranging from the Wall Street Journal and various real estate new outlets to football blogs.

RSS is half the battle yeah, thanks for the link. I added the RSS now, but they could really use some beefing up (ie the author not even showing up). Also it would be sweet to get each author a unique RSS.
