Back in the old days (2007), I jumped onto the blog bandwagon and start subscribing to all sorts of blogs via Firefox. To see if there were new posts, I had to manually scroll through each bookmarked blog in my Favorites and check for new post titles. Now my blog-addict life is so much easier with Google Reader.
Among the many things that fellow rockstar photographer Melissa Jill in AZ taught me via her own blog was this handy RSS feed reader that makes blog reading so easy. Google Reader shows all my blog subscriptions on one page and it updates automatically when a new post is available to read. Clicking on the blog name uploads the new content on the right panel.
The cool thing about GR is that it shows how many other people are subscribed to this blog. Click on any blog on the left panel, then click on 'show details' on the upper right. It shows the number of subscribers, plus how many posts per week this blog produces. While Google Reader is not the only feed reader out there (and thus doesn't account for all subscriptions from all the other feed readers), it does gauge a blog's popularity among others.
- You don't have to refresh anything. It refreshes for you (I've noticed sometimes you have to hover over the blog list so it updates, but that's no big deal).
- You can back-read the blog just by switching to 'show all items' at the top center. The more you scroll down, the further back in blog posts you can read.
- The uploaded content does not carry over the original blogsite's design. All you get in GR is the text, links, photos and videos.
- Commenting is not possible from GR unless you click on the new post's title, which will redirect you to the original blog post, where you can read all the comments.
There are many many other cool features about GR, so get your blogs transferred onto GR today and you'll be a happier person. Happy Sunday!

It was a GORGEOUS sunny day in Denver for Easter Sunday. We get to experience the full schizophrenia of Denver weather during the months of March and April, so it was timed perfectly. The Enzaldos and the Heules congregated at my brother Bobby's house for a fab brunch.
