NewsGator (Or: The cause and effect universe)
Cause: Having several thousand unread posts in SharpReader due to negligence on my part in actually reading blogs over the past month or so.
Effect: I'm downloading NewsGator...and I'll probably buy it. I run Outlook so much that it makes sense for me to keep everything in one app. Even though I had previously said:
As for the comments about my bookmarking posts in SharpReader, and how that would be available in NewsGator/Outlook...I prefer to have my blog stuff and my e-mail separate. There are times when I shut down my aggregator, but still need Outlook open, in order to focus on what I need to do. I wouldn't be able to do that with NewsGator and would inevitably be drawn to reading blogs. But this has all been said before...so I won't go into it again. :)
Anyway, I just think I'll be able to better keep track of everything if it's all in one place. Also, I'm slimming down the number of blogs I read. Trying to subscribe to everybody is ridiculous. So Greg, you just got yourself another convert. :)
