Blog Reader, anyone?

I'm an avid blog reader. I've long since given up on things like watching tv, because, 1. there's never anything good on, and 2. it's hard to watch when my kids are around and I don't have tivo, so that limits my options. I also don't read the newspaper. But I DO read blogs. I read many different kinds: Photography, Christianity, Cooking, and my very favorite: my friends' blogs!

I used to have a hard time keeping up with all those bookmarked websites until Chuck showed me the google reader. It's so easy! You just go to www.google.com/reader and sign up! Then you just copy the website (for instance, "www.TheThiers.com") and paste (or type in) the link into the spot marked "add subscription." Then as new posts come, they'll be all in one place.

Also, I've linked my reader with people I know, so I can see what they "share." For Chuck and I, it's fun at the end of the day to talk about the different blogs we've read and shared with each other. Wow, that's a pretty geeky thing, huh? Another thing I like about it is, if I try to remember a certain blog post, say about a pork chop recipe, I can just do a search and it'll search through all the blog posts I've read. So handy!!

Anyways...the reader is so fun, and if you have found yourself wanting to keep up with certain blogs, this is an easy way to do it.

And now, I've added a "Shared" list to my site. If you look down the side margin you'll see the last 5 that I've shared because I found them useful or interesting.

Happy Reading!

I also hope you use the "next" button that you can put in your toolbar.
