Are You Using an RSS Feed Reader Yet?
Are you viewing all the blogs you read daily easily and quickly? Do you have them all come to one place or view each blog individually? Are you using an RSS feed reader?
When I first started reading blogs a couple of years ago I would visit each blog daily, sometimes multiple times to see if the blog had been updated. Eventually I changed my email provider to Gmail and found Google Reader. I learned about reader and started subscribing to the blogs I visited. Using Google Reader is a fast and easy way to keep up with all the blogs you read daily.
Tony Morgan, one of the great bloggers I’m subscribed to did a blog post recently about this, he said –
“If you read several blogs or news websites daily and you’re not using Google Reader you’re wasting time. Either you clutter your email inbox with lots of unnecessary e- newsletter subscriptions, or you’re surfing from blog to blog trying to keep up. There’s a better way.
Here’s what Google Reader offers:
- It constantly checks news sites and your favorite blogs for new content.
- It brings all the content to one place.
- It recommends new content based on your reading habits.
- It creates an “easy button” for you to share content with friends.
- It goes with you everywhere, so you can read content on any computer or your phone.”

I encourage you whether you read many blogs or just a few to start using a feed reader today if you aren’t already, it makes life a lot simpler.
What are your thoughts about feed readers? What do you like or dislike about them?
