Bloglines

I have to tell you that my favorite invention (besides restaurants) is Bloglines!! I am not kidding - I used to have to click on every link on my blog and now I just put all the web addresses in Bloglines and it tells me when any of my favorite bloggers make a new post - oh yes, and the other best part??? If I find a new blog I want to follow, I just click on one button on my desktop and it saves it to my favorites in Bloglines. Hey, an added bonus, who wouldn't want a little button that tells you how many blogs you get to go read today!!! So if you aren't on the RSS bandwagon - it's easy and it's free AND it saves you time!!! Just have to put a shameless plug in for this lifesaver!!! Now, if only they'd pay me to say these things!!

I am going to have to check into this. Thanks for the heads up. I spend so much time clicking on every blog on my list. It will be nice to be notified if someone has posted something new. Thanks!!!

Adele - I am glad you hadn't heard of it already - I was guessing everyone would have already!! I LOVE it - I used to click on everybody gazillions of times each day and now I just know when you update!! It's handy!!

Rachael said...

Ha ha, I just clicked on you through my bloglines!!

I know, I love it too. I can't believe it took me so long to figure out how easy it can be!

Sandra said...

I second that!!!

nikki said...

Steffie B. said...

Ok.....so why don't you come here and get it all set up for me? lol

LaLa said...

Hey...clicked on your bold print in my bloglines and here I am. I do have too many feeds (and some of them probably don't even blog anymore) I'll tell you how many I have if you will tell me your number...

Janet said...

I third that! I LOVE Bloglines too! It's the best- saves a ton of time, but I can keep up!

Jewels of My Heart said...

I love it too.... I no longer have to stalk my favorite blogs... lol

Beckyb said...

Ok Lala - I'm coming clean - you know, part of addiction is admitting it!!! I have 297 BUT before you choke on your coffee, 115 are book blogs - I claim they are for my job!!! Now you have to come clean too!

LaLa said...

OK...as promised .. I have 163. Like I said, some of them are no longer active but I don't feel like going through them and figuring it out.
Also, in my defense, I follow China AND Vietnam blogs...ahd a few Taiwan (no telling where #3 will be from)

Tiffany said...

I haven't heard of this but I am signing up. I am so new to this blog stuff... I need all the help I can get.

Beckyb said...

Ok Lala – you make me feel better!!!! My husband thinks I’m a wacko!!!! I say I just have lots of friends!!!

kris said...

Bloglines are THE BEST.

lnipper said...

Okay so I am lost. Where do you find the bloglines? This sounds much easier then clicking around to see who has updated there blogs.

Steffie B. said...

OH.MY.WORD. No wonder I haven't heard from you by email lately! I know you hate the heat so your are blogging like a crazy woman!

Nikki & Larry said...

I totally agree, BLOGLINES is the greatest! Made my blog-lurking life a lot easier!

Too bad my computer is broken and I can't post my own blogs right now. :o(

Smiles! :o)
Nikki - who will soon be up and running with a new laptop!!

sheryl said...

LOVE bloglines! I just started using it a few weeks ago. I have seriously cut back on my blogging time but I don't miss a thing in the blogs I follow!

marina said...

I am going to have to try this out. Does Border's pay you to have the book lionks? If so that would be a great way to make a little cash. ;)

ShaggaBear said...

I knew that's how you found my posts so fast! I think I'll try that cause I hate scrolling through all my favorites only to find that several didn't post that day.

Olivia said...

Thanks Becky for the info!! I'm excited to get this set up and save some time ... actually I'll just add some more blogs to read! You totally got me addicted to this blogging thing.

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
