Works For Me Wednesday

Many blogs publish a "Works For Me Wednesday" post that shares a helpful tip or two. I’m joining in today because recently I have had a few people mention that they wish they had a way to keep up with all of the blogs that they like.

I keep up with my favorite blogs by using Google Reader. With Google Reader, you can click the Add A Subscription button and enter the URL of any blog you’d like to follow. Then, when new posts are published, they show up in your Google Reader feed. This eliminates having to hop from blog to blog to see if there are any new posts to read.

If you already have a Google or Gmail account, you should have a Reader button along the top of your account page. If you don’t have a Google account, it is easy to create one and it doesn’t mean that you necessarily have to start using Gmail. For those who use Google Chrome, you might also like this free app that notifies you when new content is posted!

reader With Google Reader, you can keep up with a lot of blogs without missing a single post. If you want to go directly to a blog post, you would just click the title of the post and you’ll be taken to the site if you leave comment.

Do you use Google Reader or another method of keeping up with blogs? Please share!

This is just what works for me! ( I am linking up at We Are THAT Family today!)
