Google Reader Review

So since Vox died, I have been using google reader to keep up with what was left of my Vox neighborhood and the people that I was following on Blogger.  While it is no replacement for the Vox neighborhood it is actually more functional for the web as a whole. 

You don’t get to follow comments, which would be my only complaint.  You can sort your feeds into as many folders as you would like.  It keeps stats on who you are actually reading by tracking who you click through to.  It even tracks how many you read in a day.  It is pretty cool and I am sure that it does way more than what I have been using it for. 

More great news is that it will track any site that has an RSS feed, so you can get updates to your web comics and new sites there as well.  I am pretty sure you can link your twitter into it as well.  So, what are you waiting for give Google Reader a try for yourself.

I started using Google Reader when my followers neared 300, the maximum the Blogger Dashboard will allow. It's worked well so far!

I like Google Reader too. I'm terrible at keeping up with all the blogs I follow, but it's nice to have it there to scroll through.

ah, I think I'm too technologically challenged to try this out :(
