Subscribing to blogs the easy way

One of the things that has surprised me about running this blog has been the number of people who subscribe via email.

There is a much easier way to subscribe to this and many other blogs. Googe Reader Feedly is a web based feed reader making it a snap to keep up with blogs or anything that provides a RSS feed all from a single place. If you’ve already got a GMail account, you can sign up very easily. If you don’t then you can sign up very quickly in a couple of minutes. It will save you lots of time in the long run.

Here is a Google Reader tutorial by Andy Wibbels. There’s also another one by Capture the Conversation as well. Google have got into the act too with Google Reader in Plain English.

Update March 2015: Google have unfortunately scrapped Google Reader, I’ve moved over to Feedly and find it very useful. You can use your existing Google account to sign-up as well.
