I know, I’m the last person you’d expect computing help from, but I am here to tell you I learned about something that’s changed how I use the internets.
Two words: Google Reader. I think I first read about this via Dooce (or maybe linked from her blog) and I immediately followed all instructions and now I never miss anything on the blogs I read regularly. It’s super simple, just plug in the blogs (or whatever) you read regularly and slide the Next button to your bookmarks bar and you’re done. Just click on that next button and it automatically zips to the entries you haven’t seen yet. Seriously, so easy.
Here is google reader settings, you click the goodies tab and you drag the “Next” button up to your bookmarks bar. Then go here to paste in the blogs you want to stay up to date on (I am up to 12, so far). Done!
Oooh and reading this stuff over again I just added the handy dandy subscribe button (also under goodies) to my bookmark bar too for easy insta-subscribing! HA!
