Keeping up with the trend using GoogleReader

If you are finding it difficult to keep up with all the new web tools, trends, techniques, tutorials, articles etc. then here is a simple technique which I use to keep myself updated.
But to use this technique you need a few tools.

  • GoogleReader where all you daily updates from various blogs will come.Igoogle with GoogleReader Widget (for viewing your daily updates without login separately to GoogleReader).
  • Mozilla FireFox Browser (for subscribing to these blogs).
  • A list of personal or community blogs you wud like to receive updates from, everytime a new post is added.
To subscribe to any blog do the following:

1. Locate the subscribe to link or rss icon on the blog page.

2. If you are not able to locate the rss icon, then using Mozilla Firefox browser you can subscribe to your blog by using the rss icon inside the address bar

3. Clicking on the subscription link or rss icon will take you to a page where you need to select the news reader of your choice. In our case we will be selection Google.

4. Selecting Google will take me to a page

5. Finally, you need to have a igoogle widget for GoogleReader, so that every time you launch your browser, (with google as your homepage) you will be able to read the updates on your favourite sites by browsing the links in your GoogleReader widget.
Thats it, now every time you open your browser all the new posts from your favourite blogs would be there right in front of you for you to read. Just a word of caution: dont over-subscribe to all possible blogs you come across. Make sure you subscribe to a few but important blogs, that way you will not be burdened with the task of reading your updates on time.
