My New Best Friend

I am an avid reader of many other blogs, but I hadn’t routinely been following my favorites because it is a drag remembering each individual blog address to check.  Even though bookmarking the addresses saves a step, it is still a waste of time to sift through all of your bookmarks, especially if there are no new posts since the last time I went there.

Enter Google Reader.  Why did I just now learn of this miraculous tool?  Google Reader allows you to enter the addresses of all the blogs you like to routinely check, thus creating a subscription to each site.  Then you just click over to Google Reader and all of the sites with new posts are highlighted in bold.  You can even read the posts right there.  All you need is a Google account, which is a snap to set up if you don’t already have one.

What it looks like.

What it looks like.

It’s basically the same thing as using an RSS feed to subscribe to a site, but the beauty is that all of your subscriptions are in one place.

What a genius way to track your favorite bloggers. 🙂
