I don’t even know what an RSS feed is.

I follow Fluther, and I use feedly.

There’s a gigantic range, of course (most blogs and many websites provide feeds at this point), so if you specify your interests we can help you out much more.

Here are a few of my favorite general-interest ones you may not have heard of:

great culture, arts, science essays – http://www.3quarksdaily.com/
beautiful travel photo blog – http://rion.nu/
awesome & weird – http://strangemaps.wordpress.com/
lots of free feeds of stuff from the magazine – http://www.newyorker.com/

And my favorite feed reader by far is Bloglines—I think it’s much more elegant than Google Reader (and it has the best handheld versions for both iPhone and BlackBerry).

@cirrina – I really just want to know what people follow, and perhaps add some more to mine in the process? Oh, and thanks for mentioning the photo blog! I love it!

The ones I follow right now are CNN, NYT (health), WebMD, LifeHacker, About.HeartDisease, and BBC News.

@petethepothead – Yay you got feedly :)

@PnL – The term is usually subscribe ;)

Well… Good luck spitting through the 331 subscriptions I’ve got atm. I could give you the OPML file, but I don’t think it’ll be worth the trouble for you :P

@benseven – Ah thanks!

@Vincentt – What?? How do you even go through that? I feel that 331 subscriptions would just intimidate me and I would neglect to go through my RSS feeds at all.

A very long list that I read using Bloglines…

@PnL—Obviously, @Vincentt doesn’t sleep. Holy crap. I subscribe to about 75 feeds and I can’t keep up every day. It takes hours to read as much as I do, and I still need to use weekends to catch up.
