So I’ve had a lot of people ask me about how I manage my 600+ nearly 400 blog subscriptions (remember when I pulled the technology plug?). My answer is pretty simple.
GReader isn’t the only news reader available, and it’s certainly not the slickest. But it’s my favorite way for subscribing to blogs and websites, as well as monitoring my company‘s brand across the Internet.
Google Reader lets you:
- One-click subscribe to your favorite sites through RSS
- Sort items by folder/tag
- See trends (which blogs you read/click the most; which are least frequently updated)
- One-click share posts with friends or on social networks
- Save favorites
- Rule the world
Well, maybe that last one is a stretch. Anyway, I put together a how-to video on the basics of adding new feeds to your reader, organizing into groups and the all-important “Mark All as Read” tool.
One thing I didn’t mention? Duh…the website. You log in with your Google account: http://www.google.com/reader/
Enjoy. (There is video embedded below, so if you don’t see it, click here to open the post as a web page — you can also click the fullscreen button on the player if you want to see it expand on your screen)
Now it’s your turn — what other tips and tricks would you like me to explain and/or do videos on? Leave me a comment!
