An Ode to Google Reader

Remember the days before Google? Going to the library, looking things up in a phone book, actually having to make a phone call? Well, now I think: "Remember the days before Google Reader?" Having to remember the names of the blogs I read and websites I want to look at? Yup, life was pretty rough.

My friend Sarah introduced me to Google is basically a place where you can subscribe to all the blogs/ websites you read and it will tell you when they have been updated. (Is is sad that I feel slightly accomplished when there aren't any updates left to read?)

Word to the wise: Google Reader does slightly change the format of the blog- so you can use it as a link straight to the website. Plus it's fun because you can divide things into folders. If you're the kind of person who thinks folders are fun. Which I am.

I'm a fan because I now don't have to remember the URLs for any of the blogs I read. Ahem, I'm not going to tell you how many that is- but here are a few of my current favorites...

In case you haven't heard, my mom is creative, wise and just adorable. Her new blog just jumped straight to the top of my list of favorites...

The Trinny and Susannah of academia. They're academic! And they dress really well! I'm way too addicted to this one...

I typically skim (read: look at the pictures) on this one because she updates.. a lot... but I always am inspired to try new things in decorating my apartment. Love the colours and creative ideas...

Thanks, Sarah, for the introduction to Google Reader!
