Subscribe to Google blogsearch results - without using Google Reader

I've just found that Google Blogsearch now has an RSS feed so you can subscribe to search results. BUT, it is kind of hidden away.

At the bottom of the results page there is a link highlighted as "NEW" which lets you subscribe to results in Google Reader. But no obvious link to the RSS for other readers.

I subscribed to the feed in Google Reader (which I hardly every use, I'm currently a newsgator/feeddemon afficionado) and then grabbed the feed address from there to add to Feeddemon.

The feed link looks like this:
http://blogsearch.google.com/blogsearch_feeds?hl=en&scoring=d&q=link:http://librariesinteract.info/&ie=utf-8&num=10&output=atom

with the search definition marked in red.

Your browser will also autodetect the feed so look for the orange RSS icon and you can use that to subscribe as well.
