“What is Google Reader?”
If you are new to the blogosphere, you may be wondering the same thing. Google Reader is just one of the many ways one can receive updates on all your favorite blogs.
Here is how Google defines it:
Stay up to date
Google Reader constantly checks your favorite news sites and blogs for new content. Whether a site updates daily or monthly, you can be sure that you won’t miss a thing.
Simplify your reading experience
Google Reader shows you all of your favorite sites in one convenient place. It’s like a personalized inbox for the entire web.
Discover new content
Millions of sites publish feeds with their latest updates, and our integrated feed search makes it easy to find new content that interests you.
I am currently subscribed to nearly 40 of my favorite blogs through Google Reader. I must confess, it is difficult to keep up with so many, but RSS does make it easier.
You can also receive updates via email, if you prefer. Both options are free and convenient.
