Web Tips: Google Reader

Just like many of us, you may love to read and learn new things from your favorite websites in blogland. The only problem is that it can take hours to literally visit all your favorite blogs and try to remember all the wonderful places you like to visit. That is why we love Google Reader. It allows you to store all your favorite blogs and websites into one single place. You can organize, read, share, and much more all from this one location. Best of all… it is FREE!
All the websites and blogs you add to your Google Reader account are instantly updated through RSS feeds. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. RSS feeds are a way for websites to distribute new content as it becomes available. As you read a post it is automatically marked that you have read it so you can spend more time reading the articles you have not read yet.

Google also has many videos and online tutorials on Using Google Reader and How to get Started.

You can also check out the tips and tricks Google Reader has to offer on their blog.

    If you have an iPad or iPhone, you can add Google Reader to the free app called Flipboard, which I love. It improves even on the Google Reader experience since navigation is as simple as flipping the page in a book.

  2. My favorite thing about Google Reader is the “Next” button, if you don’t have it you must! I wrote about it here.

    I love Google Reader! Rather than go through the entire list of blogs I follow, I’ve added Google Reader to my iGoogle home page which I go to morning and evening. I then pick and choose which ones to read at my own speed!

  4. I love Google Reader. For the Moda Cutting Table though I can only read a snippet of the post. In most other blogs, I can read the whole post without having to open another window/tab to see the page. It’s not a deal breaker but sometimes just handy to flip through the reader…such as on your iphone…
