A Google Blog Reader How-To (Reposted)
If you are a blog reader, you need a Blog Reader! You will rise up and call me blessed for pointing you to the True Way to Blog Reading Bliss, I promise! Here’s how to do it…
Go to http://www.google.com (see below) and then click on the word “more” and then click “Reader”.
When you click on the “Reader” link, you end up here.
And here they ask you if you “Have trouble keeping up with the sites you visit?” and you answer them, “Yes, by golly, I do!” And then you hit the “Create an account” button (if you don’t already have a Google account) or sign in (if you do).
It takes only a minute to create an account, don’t be scared! And don’t worry that your email will get spammed, I can’t think of a single time Google has sent me mail other than to confirm my account registration.

Okay, now go have some blog reading fun!
