Discovering Google Reader

Okay, I finally took the plunge. I clicked that "view in Google reader" button on my blogger dashboard. Then I made a coffee while it loaded--it seemed to take forever but only 'cause it had so many blogposts to compile. Then started to read.

I shall certainly read way more blogposts now I'm using Google reader; it's so neat, just scrolling down the page reading them one after another instead of having to click. But I'll leave fewer comments I suspect since scrolling back to the top of an article to open, then back to the bottom to comment, then...--well, it just takes a a bit more decision-making effort when I'm already absorbed in the next interesting post. I'll get better at it I expect, learn to open some posts in a window before I read... something.

Anyway, Google reader's pretty neat and I like it, so thank you to those dear blog friends who told me to try it. But now it's time to make another coffee. Rushing wind, blowing leaves, gray skies... the world is cold out there.

I'm using Google Reader too, very convenient. But you still have to click to get into the comment section. Also, I use Google Docs to store everything I write, then its easily accessible from any place with an internet connection >:)

Still warm shorts weather in San Antonio, but it's supposed to be a little cooler tomorrow with highs only in the 70s.

I use Google Reader sometimes, but I usually want to leave a comment if I read a friend's post. As a result, I tend to use my own blogroll, or simply follow my own visitors back to their blogs.

Isn't Google Reader the coolest thing. It's the first thing I do in the morning now. With a good coffee

A Reader is the only way to go, but it's addictive - you'll find yourself adding more and more blogs now.

I haven't tried Google Reader. Does it pull up the blogs your following? Or the blogs of those who commented on your post? Or?

I've not taken that plunge yet, ha!
