Organizing Your Blog Reading

There are many terrific blogs on the Web that I enjoy reading.  However, it’s easy to waste a lot of time book marking each individual blog in your “favorites,” and then visiting each one individually when you have time to do some reading.  It can be even worse if you have numerous email subscriptions clogging up your inbox. When you have more than just a few blogs you like to read, make it easy on yourself and try a free, simple solution like Google Reader.

Google Reader allows you to organize your favorite blogs and read them all in one place.  When you subscribe to the RSS feed of a blog, instead of opting to receive emails, select Google Reader as your method of delivery.  You can organize your feeds into folders much like your favorites or bookmarks in your browser.  That way you can quickly scroll through your subscriptions to see which posts you want to take the time to read.  You can also elect to share your favorites with others. I’ve found Google Reader to be a big time saver.  Give it a try!
