I've used some RSS readers in the past (Google Reader, Feedburner, etc.) but haven't in many years, so I'm unsure of what's out there and what will do what I want. It's pretty simple - I'd like to receive daily emails with the full text of every blog post in the blogs I subscribe to. Ideally it will be a clean, easy-to-read email, and iPhone friendly. Thanks for the help.

I love great photography and nature, and I check my RSS feed a couple of times a day. I'd love to have great nature photography scattered among the news and blogs I'm reading. It's also fine if it's great photography that includes other subjects.
So, what great photography sites provide an RSS feed of images/posts?

I've been looking for good blogs about running, lately. I've found a lot of shoe-review sites, and a few gear-review sites, but I'm interested in general motivational stories of people's training, race reports, that sort of thing. Google hasn't been very helpful, so I figured I'd ask Mefi.
What blogs do you like to read about running?

I subscribe to a lot of feeds via Google Reader. Whenever I use the search function, I get incomplete results, even if I narrow the search to only starred items, for example. How can I get Reader to show all items that match my search? I use Windows and Firefox.

I'm looking for blogs about homekeeping (cleaning, organizing, keeping up on housework, design/decorating, and that sort of thing with maybe some cooking or gardening thrown in). I like Unfuck Your Habitat and I used to read Apartment Therapy before moving into my own house. Are there any other blogs out there that offer inspiration/motivation to keep up with housework and/or design ideas? I'm very DIY and craft-oriented, and appreciate frugal living ideas, too, so blogs that incorporate those things are good, too.

Some blogs/sites are specifically set up to grab trending topics from social media and post about them. Examples would be MSN Now
. Do you know of others?

I'm thinking of starting a food- blog. The idea is to provide practical advice for people without money who want to eat good food made from good produce. I have decades of experience of being a poor foodie, but not much of writing or blogging. Any advice and all referencers will be valuable
The blog will be in my own language (not english), at least to begin with.

I used to be really into the mashup scene, but in recent years I've really fallen behind and only have one or two blogs that I'm following that don't really post new things that often. Does anyone have any recommendations? General remix blogs are fine, too, but I'm mostly looking for the classic 'multiple songs shoved together to make new ones' type.

What was that daily blog from a few years back where every day was something like "Happy Kill Your Parents Because They Won't Let You Go to the Big Dance Day" or "Happy You Paid Off Your Mortgage with Help from the Mob and Now You Have to Whack a Guy Day" it was super well-written and funny and dark and I'm pretty sure it was done by a guy named Bob. I'd like to know what he's doing now.

Looking for blogs that are thought-provoking, light-hearted, and short-winded. Examples: Futility Closet
, Said the Gramophone
. No linkblogs. Nothing cynical/polemical. Few posts per day. I prefer distinct focuses and subjects to meandering, text and thoughts to images and video (though media supported by text is fine if the media's brief enough). I like learning new things, but again, I want short, light reads – posts I can read in two minutes tops.

Recommendations for interesting single author blogs? I am in interested in reading more "interesting people" who blog. I am looking for blogs written either exclusively or predominantly by a single author, regardless of topic - provided they are accesible to the general intelligent reader (so sadly that probably rules out mathematics blogs). Who should I be reading and why are they worth my time? [more inside]

Suggest me some blogs to use for class. I don't read blogs so I'm looking for something interesting that has more of a personal touch. The class is "Diary as a Literary Genre" -- so it's the idea of blogs being a "diary of the computer age." I'm looking for any and all suggestions so I have some of the best to look through. If you're not sure it'll work for my assignment, please post anyway!
Bonus: there was some guy who went off and lives in the wilderness for 30 days and blogged about it -- Anyone know who this is? I remember my someone telling me about it but can't for the life of me remember details or if that was even the scenario.
