I know there are some family and friends out there reading this blog that check it several times day to see if I have updated.
I personally read about 200 blogs. Not all of them are updated daily, but there's no way I'd ever have the time to check each one individually to see what's new.
Google Reader keeps track of my blog subscriptions and tells me when they are updated.
This tool isn't hard to use. You just have to take some time to figure it out. Fortunately, there's a blog post out there called Google Reader for Beginners. How did I find out about this handy lesson? It came through my Google Reader, of course.
