I relied on my Blogger dashboard to update me on new postings of my favorite blogs. Sometimes I would get a pretty picture to go along with a few sentences about a blog post. Sometimes not. I was constantly opening new windows to read more about a blog. I was always disappointed when a blog I liked was not on Blogger because I couldn’t follow them! I lived this way for many, many months. (Sad, I know.)
I had heard talk of Google Reader, but I’m one of those people who doesn’t really like to get out of my routine. It messes me up. Takes me too long to get reaccustomed. I decided to give it a try though. Anything had to be better than my Blogger dashboard!
And I was right! Now I’m addicted to Google Reader. Like click on the bookmark every half hour kind of addicted. And I’m following plenty of blogs to have new things to read every 30 minutes!
What I love
I can follow any blog, not just the ones associated with blogger. If there is an RSS feed, I can add it to my Reader.
