Google reader

I know that a lot of my fellow bloggers have been talking about google reader and how overwhelming it is to see how many posts you have to read to get caught up.  I feel the same way as well but I didn't know about reader, I was trying not to miss a post by clicking and opening a new tab from dashboard for every blog that I follow.  Now that I know about google reader I feel a lot less pressure but I also feel like I am missing part of the experience when I just read the posts in more of an e-mail form.  I find that I start reading and have to minimise the post to remind myself what blog it is from. I love that I know I am not missing out but at the same time I miss all the character of each individual blog. Does anyone else feel the same?

I didn't even know anything about google reader, but I like looking at all of the cute blogs. I wouldn't want to read them from an email! ;-)

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I completely agree about Google Reader - I really like having an organized list so that I don't miss any posts but I don't like the email format. What I do is use Google Reader to determine what I need to read, click on the blog with new posts then return to Google Reader and select "mark all as read." It works for me. :) I look forward to reading your blog.

I currently don't use google reader for that very reason. I enjoy visiting each blog. My bookmarks list is incredibly long but oh well I like it that way.

I don't use Google Reader! I've heard it's just a little overwhelming.
