Google Reader

I really like Google reader. Being able to add a blog to my subscription list is wonderful. Every morning I just log in and read all of the updated blogs from the day/night before. This morning while reading, I wondered how many blogs I'm really subscribed to since I have the list set up to only show me updated blogs. Hmmm, I never do anything in a small way...157. Discovering Quilting Bloggers hasn't helped my subscriptions at all. Makes me think that I really need to update my "Perused Blogs List" on my sidebar.

I was also wondering how many people that use Google reader or some other feed really read the updates? Or do they just look at pictures. I realized this morning that I'm guilty of that. If the title of the post or pictures don't catch my attention right away, it seems that I'm off to the next blog on my list. It dawned on me that it's the same way I read quilting magazines. If the picture doesn't do much for me, then I flip the page and head on.

Well since I have no pictures for this post, who will really read it.

Have a great day!

I love bloglines...I know I have way to many blogs to watch, but it seems I can't help myself. It's amazing how it can fill up in a week. It's going to take me forever to catch up!

I read it. :0)

sometimes I skim, but usually I read most if not all posts. but then again I have to limit my bloglines to about 60 or so, otherwise I get behind too fast.

I love Google Reader .... I also use Google Alerts. I'm a picture person myself ... if the picture draws my attention then I really read the blog.

By the way ... I'm adding you to my list. LOL
