...using Google Reader

Do you follow more than 3 blogs? I have two words for you: Google Reader

One of my best friends (Ana) introduced me to google reader a long time ago, but i just starting using it the beginning of this year.  I love efficiency - therefore, I love Google Reader!

Step 1: Get a Google email account. It is the 21st century after all. Plus when Google+ takes over the world you will need it.

Step 2: Sign in and click the Gmail tab at the top.

Step 3: Click the tab at the top labeled Reader

Step 4: On the left side of the screen click Add a subscription and enter the URLs of the blogs you follow. You have to enter them exactly or it won't pick them up.

Step 5: Enjoy.

1. Starred Items - at the top of the blog post you can star and item and then click on "starred items"  at any time to view the blog posts you loved the most. I usually star recipes or decorating ideas so it is easier to find later
2. All Items - you can view all the new updated posts at the same time, and just scroll down to view the next one. This puts them in chronological order.

Now you can see every time someone updates their blog without having to go to each individual website.  A beautiful thing :)

Teaser of things to come: our new couch, our new neighbors, and friendly visits
