Saving Time

I have found a nifty little thing that saves me time.  I am probably way behind the times here, but it's a blog reader (?).  There are many out there apparently.  I am using Bloglines, but there is also Google Reader and Yahoo includes one on the My Yahoo page.

 

This is a free service where you can go to read all the blogs you are interested in.  You add the various blog addresses and then you just go to one place to see if there are any new posts.  You can sort them into different folders, too.  I have 27 blogs that I am following, sorted into folders of friends, nutrition, frugal, savings (deal alerts), and school.  I can even check the news and weather if I'm so inclined.

 

I used to waste a lot of time, checking the same blogs every day, only to find no posts, or get lost and end up someplace far away from where I had started.  Now I can see quickly who has new posts and who doesn't.  I can skim through everyone's posts and click on which ones I would like to read in full later.

 

So check it out--I'm sure that some of you could use more time in your day!
