Easy Peasy Way to Keep Up on Your Blog Reads

I'm not tech savvy. I don't get the appeal of Twitter (for those interested, I ate a bowl of Frosted Mini Wheats for breakfast) and I'm barely getting the hang of blogging. So you may already know about this handy tool to help you keep up on all your blog reading. It's Google Reader.

I love this thing! I keep a tab open in Firefox dedicated to Google Reader and I can see any new posts that come in on any of the blogs I like to read. No more bookmarking each blog I enjoy and then remembering to go check and see if there is a new post. It's all at my fingertips now. And it's so easy to use. Maybe I'm the last person to know about Google Reader, but just in case I'm not, you can go get it here.

I don't get the appeal of Twitter either :) I had just been following the blogs in my blogger dashboard, but I think I might like this better! I have to laugh about the title of your post, my mom and I say easy peasy to each other all the time. Like when I tell her about a new design idea or when we need to sew up 20 ironing board covers!

I agree about twitter - does anyone honestly care what I am doing 24/7? (the answer is no btw)

I've been an avid google reader fan. Do you have the firefox application? "Google Reader Watcher"? It puts a graphic and a number down below to let you know when a new read is available. Try it out! It is splendid! Besos!
