I first read about "Google Reader" on Mrs. Lifecruiser's blog. She wrote that it is a very useful tool to follow up your friends new posts, and recommended it to all of her readers. I didn't really pay attention and thought I am happy with my friend's list in my favourites which I used every day to check if some of my blog friends had published a new post. But then one day by curiosity I wanted to know more about it and see if it is really such a practical thing.
I googled "Google Reader" and read the explanations. It really looked very interesting. It would allow me to know immediately who had written a new post and not loosing my time by checking my whole "favourite" list and open one blog after the other.
I decided to sign in. It wouldn't cost me anything and there was no obligation to use it or not.
When I had signed in I got my "Home" page
Now I only had to put in the links of all my blogfriends I wanted to follow up, what I did here :
and then I suddenly got the list of posts with titles, date and hour when it had been published ! Great ! And when I had opened them they were marked in blue !
I just had to click on the Blog name and I got the whole post on my page. If I wanted to comment I only had to open the blog and proceed as usual.
Now I wonder how I did before. I don't loose time anymore by checking blog by blog. I just look at my list and see what has happened while I wasn't there. It really is a very useful tool ! Some of my friends have it already, I know it because when I have published a post, sometimes a few minutes later I already get the first comment.
Only three of my friends have no "feed" I don't know why, they don't appear in my list.
