Default Subscribing & newsreaders & stuff

I don't have a blog (too hard for me to get my head around let alone devote time to it) but I do love looking at blogs. I have so many faves that I like to keep up with. Now apparently I can register with something to get some sort of notification that lets me know when my fave blogger has updated their blog. I did start and then it ask me to choose between various options such as yahoo, newsgator etc.

How do I choose? Which do you use & why? Which is dead simple to use. Can I get a thumbnail photo included with the update? I don't know if there is anything else relevant that I should consider.

I am spooked easily, but I will try to get my head around all this info.

Thanks for trying to help me.

I use Google Reader. It's certainly simple to use. I can normally see the full blog post including photos in the reading panel, leaving me to click through if I want to comment. Some people have their blogs set only to give a partial feed, in which case that's all I'll get in Reader.
If you want to try it, go to Google.com and along the top right click on More. Reader should appear in the drop-down list, click on it and follow the instructions.
