Google Reader

I love following blogs of all sorts but I found I was wasting a lot of time checking out blogs to see if they were updated only to discover that they weren't so then I wouldn't bother to check them for a while and sometimes I'd forget about them. I had a list on my blog, as well as in my favorties list, that I would try to keep track of but it was a hit and miss sort of thing. Well, thanks to the Barefoot Stamper, I recently discovered Google Reader. What a great thing! I love it! Google Reader helps me keep track of the websites I want to and notifies me when they are updated. I simply have to check into my google reader home page to find out if any are updated. I can read all the updates right there in google reader if I want and if I want to comment on them I can just click on the title and be taken to the post to comment. If I don't have time to really check them out right then I can mark them to be kept for me to go back to later. I just love this thing! No more wasting time checking sites unnecessarily and no more missing new posts. Let me know if you already use it or if you decide to give it a try.

This is funny because I was just thinking about this the other day...how I don't know when someone has updated their blog because some days I don't always get to check and sometimes, same as you, I check and they aren't updated yet then I get back to them and I've missed a lot. So I'm going to grab this for sure. TFS!!
