This blog is remarkable.
Alas, its only feed is in Atom, which Gnus doesn’t understand. Hopefully in half a year or so I’ll know enough to be able to write my own feed reader in Ruby.

How are you using nnrss, out of interest? I tried it out a while ago, but I use the same xemacs process for irc/mail/news/etc, and using nnrss blocked everything while my ~40 RSS feeds were being checked.
Would be really interested in you’ve found a way to have the polling happen in a separate process/thread. :)
When I start Gnus, all the nnrss entries have a * for their article number, and nothing happens until I enter the group. And when I subsequently check for more mail, it checks for news and mail, but not rss. I’m not doing anything special to control this; it works for my usage style (since my home computer is a laptop that gets turned off between uses, so checking all of my RSS feeds once per time that I log in is acceptable).
There are a few rare situations where it checks all the feeds; I don’t remember what triggers that, if I ever knew it. There are also some rare situations where it forgets the links for all the feeds; mercifully, that hasn’t happened in several months.
All in all, it’s acceptable, but there’s a lot of room for improvement.
