My favorite blog reader, BlogBridge, continues to expand its functionality. A recent post, Can your current reader/aggregator do this?, explains some of this functionality. Several of these features are part of release 5.13. The functions lincude Attention statistics and metrics, Micropublishing - post directly to your own blog, SmartFeeds - standing searches modeled after iTunes Smart Playlists, and a huge collection of Topical Feeds and Reading Lists to get you started, among others. The Reading Lists have been around for some time but they continue to expand. Pito recently added several on the arts.
