Wordful Wednesday - Where have you been all my life?

>> Wednesday, January 26, 2011

Or at least for the past year that I have been really visiting other blogs. What or who do you ask? Google Reader that is what! I never spent much time in there because I follow so many blogs because you have to in order to enter most contests and honestly I don't really want to read all of them. I do however want to read people's blogs that I find interesting and especially to follow people's blogs who comment on my blog. What I have done in the past is just go to my own blog a few times throughout the day and look at the very bottom which is most of the blogs that I read daily. Then, I took some time with Google Reader and made a new folder and put all of my daily reads blogs in it and it has changed my life! For the blogs that I didn't really comment on anyway I easily read through the posts. It is all right there in a nice little package on my computer. Maybe I am catching up with the rest of the world finally!

A shot from our beach trip last September. I am cold! I want spring to be here! I want September to come soon so we can go back to our beach!



More Wordless Wednesday at 5 Minutes for Mom and for the more chatty ones like myself there is Wordful Wednesday. These 2 mamas probably know the awesomeness of Google Reader :)

I just "discovered" Google Reader yesterday and am excited to know that you can organize the blogs you follow into folders. Will have to figure out how to do it, immediately! Thanks for the tip.

Your photo is making me miss warm weather. Love the sunnies.

Oh my gosh my heart melted a little on this post. Not just because you had sweet things to say at me and my bloggy buddy Angie, but also because I'm sitting over here in a frozen tundra right now and the rays of sun bouncing off of your girls made me long for summer so, so desperately.

LOL, I love Google Reader! I also have a "love blog" section on my blog but google reader is so much easier.

Love that photo!!! But, it makes me miss Summer! We are about to be hit by another 6 or so inches of snow..ugh

i think i have added a couple blogs to google reader... blogs that i could not follow through blogger. but, like you, i sort of forgot about it. now i am thinking of looking at it afresh... since you make it sound so handy.

i just updated my blog roll, and i usually go through that when i have time to see who posted recently and who i might want to catch up on.

but google reader sounds like an even better tool... like you said, putting it all together in a neat little package.

thanks for the tip!

Ahhh, what a beautiful picture of the girls in the sun by the beach! So wish that was where I lived, esp in winter!

That photo is too cute.

Okay, I totally need to do that! Make a folder for the blogs that I regularly visit. I was trying to think of a way to make visiting blogs easier because really, my google reader is out of control. I did not realize I can make folders...on my to-do list.

I resisted google reader for a long time, then I was like, what the heck for?! Glad you found it. I'm definitely enjoying the warmth of your sunny photo today!

Cara Wednesday, January 26, 2011  

Oh Jessie, I needed that photo right now.
I love google reader, I have a bunch of folders, like "must reads" (which you are in), "good reads", "photography", etc.

No worries about keeping up with me - I didn't know you could do that! I'll have to check it out.

What a crew of movie stars you've got there!

Google Reader is awesome...I love it and use it all the time!!! It's such a time-saver too. :) by the way...I love that picture, and yep, with you too on being ready for summer!

Kelly Thursday, January 27, 2011  

Ok, I love winter but that picture really makes me want summer to get here quickly!
