Comments: Google Reader

Learn the keyboard shortcuts (j k etc) and i love starring things i've read but might want to go through more later. keep it on "confirm mark as read" because i once wasn't paying attention and marked all of my knitting blogs as read (they weren't) it wasn't too difficult to go back, but it annoyed me. i dunno.. hope that helps.

I love being able to star things and save them for later -- helps with book recommendations and recipes.

Oh, and a warning: I believe posts expire after 30 days. I'm not positive of how long it is, but they do definitely start to disappear after a while.

I use THREE readers--Google, Newsgator, and Bloglines. Although, honestly, I haven't opened my Bloglines account in days....

I love google reader. I tried out bloglines but i hated the fact that it was a. slow and b. would bring up posts i had read a few days before.

I use newsgator to track work stories but other than that, i'm not a huge fan. I think google reader is a much simpler interface.

I moved over recently too. It takes a bit of getting used to but I quite like it now.
