When I initially got into reading blogs, I would spend hours checking for new posts and traveling to a ton of different sites in order to read new content. This soon became an overwhelming task, not to mention a HUGE time waster! That’s when I finally jumped on the Google Reader bandwagon. Google in all its brilliance, created a extremely useful and free product that can be added to your Google account with a few clicks (or you can sign for a free Google account if you don’t already have one). From my Google Reader, I simple click the “Add a Subscription” button, and type the RSS url to your favorite blogs and websites. Now you can keep up with new content from your favorite sites without having to individually check each one! It’s as easy at that, and a much for effective way of staying up to date with the blogging world.
I know that tons of people already know about blog readers, but I still come across a bunch of people who don’t! It’s such a great tool and instantly makes your life just a little bit easier!
P.S. If you also have an iPhone you can download the free GReaderApp and follow new posts from your phone!
