Google Reader convert

I tried to keep my following to a small number, but guess what?  There is too much good stuff out there on all of your blogs.  

So I tried Google Reader.  You have seen it down it the right hand corner of your dashboard, under your items that you read through each day.

Rettabug gave me this suggestion
I use Google Reader all the time. I have learned to START my posts with a photo, because if you start one with text, you don't see a photo in Google Reader.

Suzanne gave this suggestion:
I use google reader, and if you want to comment, you have to click on the little arrow up by the post title. That takes you directly to the blog and then you can comment. It's an extra step. I just go through really quick and pick out all the blogs I usually comment on, and click on their arrows. I have a whole lineup of blogs to comment on when I'm done. Then I just read the ones that are left after that, and if I want to comment, I do. I think it's faster, but I've never timed it. :)

Someone else suggested that you click on the star of the blog if you want to leave a comment.  Read all the way through the new posts, then go to your starred blogs and leave comments all at one time. 

Saves time!  Really try it.  I'm convinced.  (I do miss all the fancy headers though) You don't see those in Google Reader.  

Any more suggestions and tips?


  1. Great suggestion. I never knew what that was. I have to check it out. Thanks. Hugs, Marty

  2. I mostly just read the ones on my blog roll and the ones I subscribe to that come to my email. I like the email way.

  3. That seems pretty neat~ I will have to try it sometime. Thanks for the tidbit.

  4. Thanks for the's always nice learning:) My blog roll is my fav.


  5. Great information, Lori. I tried it briefly, but I didn't care for it. I'm glad Blogger gives us so many options...something for everyone.

  6. I may have to try that out! I am always looking for ways to read and comment quickly! I haven't even ever changed my blog roll! I am so slow!!!

  7. Great idea Lori I will try...thanks

  8. I'm going to try the star thing. It sounds a lot faster than what I've been doing.


Please leave a comment and thanks!
