blogging tool of the year!

where have i been? apparently in a dark closet. or in the snowed-in world that has been utah this winter. which actually is not a helpful excuse because that should give me more time to spend on the internet. what am i talking about? only the most efficient and amazing blogging tool ever: google reader! alison turned me on to this while in vegas over the weekend and i couldn't be more excited about it. so now instead of going to my blog a few times a day and scrolling one by one through my blog links, checking for a friend's new post, then returning to my blog for the next link i can just log into google (reader) and it conveniently displays my "reading list" which shows me any of my subcriptions' new posts! i don't even have to go to the actual blog unless i want to comment, but that's easy because i can just click on the blog's title and voila! a few of us had been wondering how alison manages to be the first to comment on every blog in the entire world, and this is how she does it! {sorry to reveal your secret, adi!} it took maybe twenty minutes to manually add all my blogs to my google reader subcriptions and i was off and running. so, expect more comments {and timely ones} from me from now on.

Isn't Google Reader fab? To be honest, I have yet to use it, but I need to - so convenient!

So funny that you didn't know about it! It really is the best thing ever -- my hubby introduced me to it last summer and it makes me be able to be addicted to blogging, without really being addicted. It's the best!

Great, now everyone knows that I am not just a crazy stalker but actually have a convenient way to know who has updated recently. The only downside is it doesn't do private blogs so my friends that have those I often forget about.

I know I should be eating wheat... Which is my normal choice for a sandwich... But, you can't pass on a craving for white. HAHA

yep. your blogs come straight to my google reader. I discovered RSS feeds through this really nifty and short instructional video. Its so easy to understand, everyone should watch it.

Liz, I've been using Google Reader for like 5 days now and I don't think that I'm underestimating it's glory by saying IT HAS CHANGED MY LIFE. He he.
