How to follow a blog
Not long ago I was far from a blog enthusiast, but then I discovered “the trick.” Now I enjoy keeping up with the latest news – on MY timetable. How do I do this? I let Google Reader (GR) manage everything for me. First I give GR the names of the blogs I’d like to follow (see our Blogroll for some ideas). After that basic setup, every time I go to GR it gathers the titles of the latest posts and makes a list for me. If I see something that looks interesting I can read more. I probably take a quick look at one out of every ten titles, then read half of those more closely. After I check the entire list I tell GR I have read everything, so that on my next visit I only see new items.
