Life-changing

The other day I realized I had a problem. I sat down at the computer intending to spend a few minutes checking blogs. An hour and 15 minutes later I looked at the clock and couldn't believe I had spent so much time staring at the computer screen. YIKES! But the thing, is I LOVE reading blogs. It makes me feel connected to my friends and family and I have actually learned a lot via my blogging buddies. But I simply cannot spend that much time at the computer! It's a dilemma.

Luckily, in the age of modern technology I believe I have found a solution..... Google Reader. I subscribed to a feed from the blogs I regularly read and will now be able to see who has posted something new! No more clicking on a blog only to find it has not been updated in days. And no more clicking on a blog to get the link to another person's blog. It's going to save so much time! (Why haven't any of you told me about this, before?!)

OH! JESSI, Jessi, jessi! I LOVE google reader, and I blogged about it, maybe a year ago after I got mine up and running, it really does save SO much time! I can see how you missed it though, b/c I missed a lot of things before I had it. My only debacle is that some of the blogs I read WON'T subscribe to google reader, argh!

I don't know what this is either.... I'll look into it. Good idea. I notice I look at the blogs and forget to comment! But I too spend too much time doing it. I spend all my time reading everyone elses rather then updating mine.

I have that problem a lot too. I get wrapped in things on the computer and before you know it the whole day is gone. I didn't know wbout that google reader. That sounds like a good idea!

For anyone that is interested (which I imagine should be anybody that reads more than a couple blogs), follow the link on my blog to Google Reader. From there you can subscribe to feeds from the blogs you read. (On the left there is a button that says "Add subscription." Click that button and then paste the URL of the blog you like and click "add".) It takes a while to copy in the URL's, but once they're in you just have to go to the same website and you'll see a listing of who has posted something new. I'm telling you, it's AWESOME! (The one downside being that not all blogs allow you to subscribe to a feed, but from my experience most of them do).
