Monitoring multiple WordPress sites for comments using Yahoo Pipes

As the de facto blogging geek in the family, I’m keeping an eye on my blog and three other (mostly inactive) blogs:

I need to monitor comments that slipped through spam filtering, WordPress version updates, and so on. Fortunately, I don’t have to regularly come up with content for all four!

I wanted to make it easier to check comments on multiple sites. Instead of checking each site regularly or configuring them to send me e-mail (too much e-mail!), I used Yahoo Pipes to combine the blog comment feeds from each site into one main feed. Then I added that feed to iGoogle, along with gadgets for weather, calendar, and mail. Tada! Dashboard.

Do you manage multiple WordPress blogs? How do you stay on top of them?
