Google Reader

Ok, so I know this post is really boring, but it's one I've been thinking about typing up for a while and it's much easier to type right now than to upload photos.
If you are not using a reader to follow your blogs you are missing out. I am sure some of you are, if you are please dismiss, but if not... Here goes

Before I discovered google reader I would simply go to my blog and click on each link I had attached under my friends and see if they had a new blog up and from there I would often link to other blogs I liked off of the person's blog I had just visited. Sound familiar to any of you?
Well, how google reader works is anytime you go to someone's blog you select follow in the left hand corner, at this point they will pop up in your google dashboard and in a way this feature alone kind of allows you to follow people with more organization. But because blogger is hosted through google, if you will go into their reader program it totally allows you to manage the blogs you haven't read. It puts them in order from newest to oldest and the ones you haven't read are in a darker color, so you know how many you have left to read from each person you follow.

If I'm not making perfect sense with this, then what you need to do is simply go to every blog you like to read occasionally, follow them in that left hand corner and then go to google reader and it will make sense.

Like I said in the beginning, I know this isn't the most fun blogging topic, but I am typing it out because I wish someone had told me sooner how it all worked. It makes blogging reading so much faster and productive. So, anyway try it and let me know what you think!
