Sunday

I’ve fiiiiinally started using a blog reader tool. Before I used to hop from blog to blog and back round again; Quite time consuming and then inevitably I’d visit one of my fave blogs and see that I’d somehow missed a post that was published two days ago. Aargh! Those days are now a thing of the past thanks to Google reader! My trusty new friend - I’ll call him GR for short, tells me when there’s a new post and I’m right there to check it out. So if I comment on your blog five minutes after you’ve posted you’ll know why.

I’ve added the majority of my book marked blogs, and of course those on my right hand column but I still have more to add. All you have to do is insert the link. Easy. Highly recommend it for anyone who follows blogs.

August seems to be a relatively quiet bloggin’ month. Bloggers are only human too I suppose (in a cyber kind of way) and must take a break too.

I use Bloglines and I don't know what I'd do without it. I've tried Google Reader but it loads really slowly for me :(

Anyway, hope you're enjoying agosto :)

I tried Bloglines a long time ago when I wasn't a blogger myself. At the time I didn't find it so straight forward, but maybe now I'm more willing to learn about blog tools what with me being a blogger :)

I think I know what you mean about slow to load. For example, I've subscribed to my own blog (bit selfish eh? :) ) and it still isn't showing that I've posted this new post which I added a few hours ago.

I am enjoying August and hope you are too Sognatrice.

When I first entered the 'blog world' I used to click on each blog individualy and see if authors had updated. Then, as I started reading more blogs I decided that I needed to sign up with one of these update services. I tried bloglines, but it seemed confusing, or, I just wasn't willing to learn. lol
Then I noticed that little feeder button in my toolbar. All I do is click on it and it automatically puts the blog, and updates it, in my favorites bar. That's how I keep track of all of the blogs I read now. It's such a time saver!

Wow, you were getting by without a reader!

I used to have bloglines. Now I love NetVibes, mainly because I love the little tabs and it keeps track of my book marks, email, to-do list and other stuff as well :)

Neat little page that NetVibes.

You're right! August feels slower here in the blogosphere!

I use Bloglines, but I don't really like it. Perhaps I'll try Google Reader...thanks!

Hope you are well - you'll have to change your page image, it makes me hungry everytime I see it!!!
