I Heart... Followers

Do you Follow ?  Until a few weeks ago, I didn't.  Now I do. And I am delighted to be a leader in Following !

Google has created a new feature for iGoogle users called "Following."  It is a VERY easy way to keep up with your favorite blogs, and has simplified my reading life significantly.

I used to subscribe to blogs via email and rss feeds.  That was great, but my list of blogs to follow keeps getting longer and longer --and I found I was missing some of the best posts.  Those methods became quite cumbersome.

Enter Following .

Now on my Blogger dashboard I have a handy list of blogs which I am Following (as of today:  33 different blogs).  I can keep tabs on which blogs are updated and even get a snippet of the blog post to see if it is something which interests me.  I love it!  And the blogs do not have to be Blogger blogs -- you can Follow any platform.  For those of you who I am following, I am reading much more of your work!  Well done!

And because I am really busy, it is important for me to stay up-to-date without much effort or energy.  Following has allowed me to do that much more easily!

To start following:  click "Follow this Blog" in the sidebar.  You can choose to follow publicly -- everyone will know that you do -- or privately (you will be the only one in the know).  

Follow me and learn how to Follow .  If you have a blog, invite your readers to do the same!  Heck!  You might have Followers of your own and not even know it yet!
