I've been playing with Kinja for 24 hours now, and I've found it to be useful. At home I use NetNewsWire to check in on the blogs I like, but I don't have the time or desire to look through all of those sites while I'm at work. So, I can use Kinja to keep track of my 10-20 favorite blogs during the day, instead of going to each of the pages individually. As others have said, it's nice to see everything together on a page that actually looks like a weblog.

There are a few things I'd like to see that would be nice additions down the line.

  • When I visit someone else's digest, I want to see a list of all the site's they've subscribed to.
  • I want to be able to claim my blog and see who is subscribing to it.
  • Once users have claimed their weblogs, I'd like to have a link to their digest included with each of their excerpts.
  • I realize there are bandwidth issues, but it'd be nice to be able to customize how many excerpts appear on each page.
  • Multiple Digests.

That's my list for now, but I expect it to grow over the next few days.
