Organize your blog reading
I’m not a technology superstar so I’ve partnered up with someone who is in order to bring you the latest and greatest in the technology world as it relates to organizing and time management. Every couple of weeks Carley Knobloch, a technology lifestyle expert from Digitwirl, visits us to share some fun yet informative videos on various technology products and services that can help you get organized and simplify your busy life.
You know sometimes in this world of blogland, I forget that not everyone reading my blog is a blogger. You simply might be someone who enjoys reading blogs not writing them. That fact was further pointed out to me when I was having a discussion with a friend. She mentioned to me that everyday she faithfully checks out her favorite sites by clicking through each of the bookmarked links in her browser and is always so sad when there isn’t a new post. I explained to her how she could set up all the blogs she follows in a feed reader which would then let her know every time a new post is up and she wouldn’t physically have to go to the actual site each time. It really is a very efficient way to organize your blog reading.
My girlfriend had no idea and it surprised me because I guess I just (mistakenly) assumed everyone knows what feeds and RSS are all about. Silly me. So for my girlfriend and everyone else out there who might not be familiar with this, I’m sharing Carley’s latest video for you today. It takes seconds to set up a reader (I use Google Reader and follow over 300 blogs!) and you will be thrilled at how much time it saves you. In fact, now that I have an iPhone I read my blogs through my feed reader app on my phone (I love G-Whizz) whenever I have a couple of minutes of “wait” time. Love!

Notes from Carley:
Ever get tired of surfing from website to website? Once you understand what an RSS feed is and how to use a RSS reader, you’ll be able to sit back and have the web’s updated content come right to you.
