You may think of the blogosphere as a more decentralized and magnanimous version of Reddit which might be lacking in things like organization and searching but wins hands down when it comes to content quality and quantity.
The "blogosphere platform" is organic in nature
Now, one might wonder how come the blogosphere is more content rich than reddit which has so many mods and admins patrolling the subs and removing posts every now and then. On Blogosphere, the content quality is maintained organically, the user (audience) maintains the quality by her decision to visit and read a blog post (or not), decision to comment on that blog post, decision to share that link across on other social media platforms like reddit, quora, etc. These decisions, in turn, affect the search engine's priority for that particular blog post link. Google will either accept or reject that link in the ranking algorithm and Google's decision is usually correct, especially when it comes to ranking!
Thus the blogosphere is a far more organically evolving and decentralized platform compared to moderated platforms like reddit, quora and others.
Free speech still exists in the blogosphere
In this regard, you may compare the blogosphere with a sort of republic or democracy where people's will drives the beast whereas other content platforms are like mini dictatorships where the moderator or admin diktats rule the show. Because the former is unmoderated and free of any "above interference" as such, free speech is virtually guaranteed and the blogger is pretty much free to speak up her mind (at least compared to the latter).
Content searching and organization is slightly different on blogosphere
You may roughly think of each blog as a sort of subreddit, only it could be far less topical and far more flexible in organization and content structure. Some popular technology blogs like Engadget and Ars Technica could be too generalized and the posts may include anything and everything from smart-phones and laptops to web based software to even politics and the content mill always keeps on churning as posts are made round the clock throughout the day.
On the other hand, there are blogs of commoners like Prahlad Yeri's blog, Aramin Ronacher's blog, Julia Evan's blog, etc. where posting frequency is much lower but they are typically far more topical and content quality is better in the sense that you get individual spin or different take on stories who's topics could be too broad for other popular tech blogs to cover in sufficient detail.
Thus, you get to read what you search for on blogosphere and for that you must follow the right blogs, just as you might follow the right subreddits on reddit or spaces on quora.
RSS/Atom feeds can help you organize blogosphere content
As mentioned earlier, content searching and organization could be tricky on blogosphere and some organization skills are needed on the individual's part. There are many popular feed readers such as Feedly and Flipboard which allow you to follow, organize and read all kinds of blogs in one place. If you prefer simple and old school, simply bookmarking your favorite blogs in your browser isn't a bad idea. Since bookmarks can be easily synchronized across devices with Firefox or Chrome these days, organizing the blog content through bookmarks shouldn't be a problem at all.
Disqus and similar projects can help the blogosphere
Disqus is a great example of a micro commenting platform which helps the broader blogosphere platform by allowing all users to comment on each other's blogs with a single sign in. With tools like Disqus, the rapport between blog authors and their audience increases manifold due to the network effect (Blog A's author can comment and interact with the audience of Blog B too). The network effect of popular social media sites like reddit and quora could be realized on the blogosphere too if more and more people start using Disqus.
Users must still be signed on with multiple services
Until a tool such as Disqus becomes universal, those who wish to interact on the blogosphere through comments should still be signed on with multiple online services to be on the same page. At the very least, you must be signed in on these three:
1. Disqus (for most blogs)
2. Google (for Blogspot, etc.)
If you want to stay anonymous on blogosphere, most blogs allow for anonymous commenting too, so you can post with a name like "Anon" and an email address where you'll get notified about replies, etc. Alternatively, you can sign up for an alt account on Disqus or Wordpress.com.
