I think I'm with you on not being particularly interested in some complete
strangers life when I'm simply googling for a solution to a problem and
stumble across their blog where they've very helpfully posted a how-to.
However the few blogs that I bother to read the feeds of regularly are those
of mates or acquaintances that I've actually met who share a similar
interest. It's the additional level of personality that I like so I don't
mind the pictures of a new poodle etc.

There are of course a number of blogs where they keep it strictly
professional and which can be an excellent source of information. I
subscribed to a bunch in the past (like the 37 signals one, Vitamin, Zeldman
etc) but I found that I didn't enough time in the day to read them so

I've never liked forums, having to actually go back to a website to continue
a conversation sucks (though I admit that sometimes a forum is the only way
of getting information or support). RSS feeds and mailing lists all the way
for me.
