In the past I have read a few blogs, very sporadically. This usually happened when a friend would post a link on Facebook, or to an email list. I would casually wander on over and check it out, but never stick around past one or two posts. It was like I was having casual flings with various blogs, but never intrigued enough to settle down.
Then I heard, over and over again, how I should create a blog for my genealogy research. What?! Me?! I know nothing about that stuff, how am I going to figure it all out? Well 3 months of investigation and I was sold. What sold me you ask? Reading other people’s blogs of course.
This leads me to why I am madly in love with Google Reader. Instead of going to each one individually, and having to remember how to get there, I just subscribe using my reader. Anytime one of the blogs I read has a new post, it pops up on there. How cool is that?! Currently I am subscribed to 56 genealogy related blogs. Anytime I find a new one I enjoy, it just gets added to my list. Then at my leisure I can browse the taglines of the posts and read when I have the time. Like at the school waiting to get my kids.
If you have not done this yet, go and do it. You will love it, I promise!
