Because you are following a huge numbers of bloggers, you'd like an easy access to your favorite book bloggers, authors' blogs, or simply wants to pay back a visit to your avid readers' posts regularly. Ofcourse you'd like to do this in a very organize way. Whether its from Wordpress or any other websites, without having to subscribe via emails. Here comes Google Reader, where you can keep all these blogs neatly in a folder, i.e. Favorite YA Blogs, Authors Blogs, etc. So this is totally different from your Blogspot's dashboard.
I guess, for other users like Wordpress, etc. you will have to sign up for Google Reader and create an account here.
Since I am a Blogspot user I'll show you the very easy steps to have an organized reader. If you dont have Google Reader account yet, please sign up first.
- Dashboard>Right below Items you will see View In Google Reader , click it. You will be now sent to your Google Reader home page.
- To manage blogs: Click the blogs you would like to include in your folder and then click the Feed Settings and scroll down>select New Folder. You can name it whatever you like to name it. Its up to you :)
- To add sites/blogs: Click Subscribe button and add the URL of the site you would like to include and make sure you include them in their proper folder, by clicking Feed Settings> scroll down and select their designated folder.
- To Read updates: Under Subscription, just click the folder you would like to check on your left side bar. And all of their updates will be shown. Great right? :)
So happy reading guys. And hope it all works for you. I'm very happy with Google Reader, so hopefully you will too! Cheers.x
