Gmail People Are Geniuses!!
Playing on iTunes: "Your Legs Grow" by Nada Surf
I must shout out towards the fabulousness of Gmail. I have had an account with them for almost four years, and have never really noticed any abnormal greatness.....and then they added "Reader".
In a nut shell, this program takes any blog and puts in one place, just a click away from your in-box. It lets you know when someone has uploaded and allows you to read them either by blog or by date. Marvelous!!
I know there are other programs that do roughly the same thing (Technorati and such)...but there is more to this fabulous system!!! They allow you to display your shared bits of news from other blogs with the world. So, if Mrs. Rowling posts a bit of wisdom to her blog that would like to share with your thousands of readers, you simply click the "share" button, and your followers get to see the info as well!!! I am in love with this, as I can see what I need to in one place without hunting.
If you are curious to see how it works, just head over to Gmail to check it out. If you are curious to the "shared" action at work, just take a look at the white box near the top entry.
Until next time!!!
