Blogs
So what good are blogs? Well, if you're like me you're busy 24/7 and there's no way you will take the time to maintain a daily watch on the comments of anyone in the programming industry - regardless of how much influence they wield.

If you enjoy blogging, then by all means spend all the time you want participating. But if your goal is to simply to draw whatever professional/technical benefits are available from blogs, then periodic review once a week or twice a month is adequate.

In one sense, blogs are no better than forums - with each providing daily, real-time information. With blogs, however, the threads are essentially directed by the same individual. So when I try to identify a blog to follow, I'm really looking for an individual who consistently puts forward topics of value to me as a programmer and who can clearly articulate the issues associated with those topics.

The one exception to recommendation for periodic use of blogs is the case of an ongoing discussion on a topic of interest to you. In those cases you'll want to follow the thread daily/hourly until the topic is resolved or no new information/points of view are forthcoming.
