The start of a new year is a good time for change. Out with the old, in with the new or just a good time to try some new things. One of the things I’m changing up in 2009, is my blog reader. For the past year, I have been using Newsgator and in general have been very happy with it. Before that, I was using Bloglines. But, I have been hearing a lot lately about the newly updated Google Reader, so I decided to give it a try. I’ve also recently switched from Yahoo mail to Gmail, so that was also a contributing factor.
If you follow even more than 2 or 3 blogs, you really would benefit from a reader. If you haven’t subscribed to a blog in a reader before, you can read this post. I encourage you to also watch the clip below for an introduction to Google Reader in Plain English.
One of the added benefits to a reader is that you can share interesting posts you find with others. If you’d like to subscribe to the posts I find interesting in my blog reading, just add this link to your reader!
