I was looking through my Sitemeter and FEEDJIT and noticed that someone likes to click on allll the blogs on the side of my page to read them. Which is nice... I mean, that's why they are there but I wanted to tell you all about using an RSS reader in case you didn't know.
There are a lot out there, but I use Google Reader so thats what I'll show you.
Google Reader can do a ton of things, but here is the really basic part. How to view your favorite blogs.
Go to http://www.google.com/reader
Sign in with your google account, or make one real quick.

Click "Add Subscription"
Type in URL:
Then when you want to catch up on your blogs, it will list all the new blogs for you. Kind like email:
You can read them from the reader:
Or click on them and it will take you straight to the person's blog.
You can also do fancy things like add "tags" to different blogs like "craft" or "recipe" or something like that, then if you click on your "craft" tag, it will bring up any blog you have ever tagged that way. You can add multiple tags to one blog. You can also email blogs straight from your reader to someone if you think they'll like it.
Pretty much if you read more than a few blogs I would highly recommend trying it this way you'll love it!
