Google Reader Saved My Life
Picture the scene. I’d visit a blog like Adam Meets World several times a day, just to see if he’d written anything earth-shattering. Of course he hadn’t. But I had to be first to see if he had.
I’d do this for several blogs, probably accounting for 90% of some people’s hits as I clicked ‘refresh’ out of boredom.
WELL NOT ANY MORE!!!
That’s right. I chose not to choose boredom. I’ve chosen something else. And it is Google Reader.
Google Reader gets all my favourite blogs, tells me when they’ve been updated and displays them all in a handy list (see left).
Not only has it saved time, but it’s also extended the life of my mouse. I heartily recommend it.
