Reading Blogs


I'm following so many great blogs now, and I wonder - How does everyone keep up with reading blogs? I try to read blogs at least once a week, but the past couple of weeks, I've found myself just browsing the ones that have made the most recent posts. If I have time, I'll scroll down the list of blogs I'm following to check and see if one of my "usual" blogs has anything new. It's hard to keep up, though. So I'm asking you, how do you keep up with reading blogs?

And I also wonder, if you have email subscribers, how can you tell how many subscribers you've got? I can't figure that out, but I'm sure there must be a way. If anyone knows, please fill me in! =)

Remember, I still need some help with my upcoming giveaway. Click the link below to see how you can help me decide what the giveaway prize will be!

I plug everything in to my google reader and as new ones come up I read them.

it notifies me when there's (2) new blog posts so I just click new posts and there they are, this time it was one by you and another by the Recycler's Guild Team Blog.

I find it much easier than using the "I'm following" list in my dashboard.

sorry that didn't make sense... it notifies me as many at a time as there are, not just when there are 2 new ones.

some times it's 1, sometimes it's 7

makes for good reading with my coffees.

Thanks, 42!!! =) Can you follow with Google Friend Connect AND use the reader to subscribe? Because if you only subscribe, it won't show the little avatar picture anywhere.

yep, I mostly do both follow publically and put them in the google reader ... but it's nice to keep some blogs private... like closed threads and stuff.

Also it doesn't matter if they use wordpress or blogspot you can still plug them all in.

It's tiring to try and keep up with all the blogs! It's like a full time job. I do it everyday!
