How do you keep up with the blogs that interest you? You don’t want to spend all day online, but you also don’t want to miss anything.
I may have mentioned before how easy Bloglines is to use. That’s how I keep track of the blogs I don’t want to miss but don’t need to read daily. I enjoy the “keep it new” feature if there’s a post I want to keep to read again.
Blogs I want to read daily, like Other Food: Daily Devos and Rainbow Gulf of Love, I get by email. I’m careful to keep it to a few, though, or they’ll end up sitting in my in-box and not get read.
Something new I’ve discovered is Read it Later, which lets me mark a specific post for later viewing. This is great if I think it’ll be a one-time thing and I don’t want to set up a new bookmark or subscription. The Read it Later button sits on my Firefox toolbar, and it’s a one-click deal to use. No logging in or other tricky bits.
If you need a way to subscribe to blogs and you’re not familiar with RSS (=really simple syndication, I believe) here’s a reader-friendly explanation from Thomas Umstattd at Author Tech Tips.
What works best for you?
Thanks for the link! RSS is a life changing technology imo.
Great site by the way.
Thanks for all the helpful articles on your blog, Thomas!
