Google readers versus following blogs

Just out of curiosity, how many of you follow blogs in Google Reader? Are they the same blogs you follow publicly, or are they different?

I follow a bunch of blogs, but also have them in my Google Reader. I also read or at least skim a lot more in Reader. Some I'm just checking out for a while and have yet to decide whether I like enough to be a follower. Others are in a format that's easier to follow that way because they are LiveJournal or something other than Blogger accounts.

I've noticed our follower numbers are about the same in both Reader and on here, but I don' t know how to account for the overlap. Any thoughts?

I don't use Google Reader that much, even though I have an account. I do bookmark blogs that I like as well, though.

I follow publicly. Haven't quite figured out Google reader yet, so I don't use it.

I haven't used Google Reader much either...not sure why.
