Tags: Google Reader, keeping up with blogs
When I first started blogging and reading other people’s blogs, my friend Trista gave me a copy of her Bloglines. I used it for a while, but it seemed to get out of hand for me. I decided it was best to rely on bookmarks, sticky notes, history, and my memory to follow the blogs I read on a regular basis. So, how was that working for me? Not very well. I would go to blogs I loved once a month and be all behind the times. Then I had the brilliant idea to add links to this blog, figuring I would visit each once a day or once every other day at the most. It sounded like a good idea, but other than not losing URLs, I haven’t been doing much better than before.
I still resisted creating subscriptions for one reason or another until I started having trouble getting to Devourer of Books’ blog. The withdrawals are too much for me. Today I’ve broken down and set up Google Reader. I’m looking forward for keeping up much better with everyone’s blogs from now on! Now, if I could only leave comments…
I see that today is Devourer of Books’ read-a-thon day. Go Jen! I’ll be sending my money in the mail on Monday. I think it’s great that you’re supporting RIF. I just wish I could leave a comment on your blog!
