If you were a longtime blogger on Yahoo 360 and miss some of those features like I do, but miss none of the frustrations that Yahoo 360 so freely handed out at the end as most of us found other avenues to blog on, then you will like the latest Blogger feature called Follower (<--click).
In many ways it mimics Yahoo 360 friends list. You can either manually add the blogs you read or select Google Reader and go from there. It's easy as pecan pie. You can track who is reading your blog as well unless they have selected anonymous.
Give it a try if you are on Blogger. In the meantime.........
