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 Reader...it 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...

*Gg
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...

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

*decor8
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...
*Jane Brocket
She likes colour and England and domesticity. And I like her.
Thanks, Sarah, for the introduction to Google Reader!
