Why do I need Google Reader? you may be asking yourself. Let me tell you. Do you ever: check your friends blog and she never, ever updates, spy on people from high school, spy on people you don't know, only want to read those blogs that have a new post? Then Google Reader is about to become your new BFF.
One thing I just learned is how to actually go to the blog from Google Reader, so if you wanted to leave a comment or something. See in this next picture where it says Jacobson, well you just click on that and it will open the blog in a new window. Fabulous.Google Reader does not work for private blogs, so I have a folder in my favorites of all the private blogs I read, then when I am signed in I just quickly check all those. There you have it, Google Reader in a nutshell, help I'm trapped in a nutshell. If anyone has any other tips or tricks please leave a comment. If you would like to leave your testimony of Google Reader or Tivo you may also feel free to do so.
First here is the Google Reader Link, you need a google account, mine is the same as my blogger and I can't remember if I created it the same or if I already had a google account because I had a blogger account. Confused already? me too. Anyhoo, get yourself an account and set it as your homepage or as an additional homepage. Do it. Now! Okay, now forgive my high quality photo but I am not good at explaining things so I needed a visual aid.This is part of my Google Reader homepage. If one of the blogs that I "subscribe" to has posted something new there would be a number next to the name of the blog. None of you have posted anything new today. Losers. There you are Engars, Jabobsons, Life is short Natilie, nothing new from none of ya. So to subscribe to a blog you need to copy the blog address and hit the "Add Subscription" button that you see in the middle of the photo. Paste the address in there and anytime it's updated Google Reader will let you know.
