how to efficiently stalk your favorite blogs | a public service announcement

i admit that i follow quite a few blogs – particularly photography-related ones.  when i first started stalking  following blogs, i would randomly go through my different bookmarked blogsites and anxiously see if there was a new update… sucking away much time uploading different blogs, often disappointed to find out they had not been updated since i last checked 2 minutes ago.  =)

but then i discovered Google Reader… ahhh…  This lovely thing basically allows you to read all your favorite blogs in a single interface, without having to go directly to each blog’s site.  I now just read all my blogs via Reader.  And even better, you can easily see when there is a new post, so you never miss out on anything or needlessly check for updates.  Just copy and paste your fav blogs’ url addresses into your subscription list and you’re good to go.  So go check it out and of course, feel free to add this blog to your list so you don’t miss out on all these announcements and images i’ve been posting.  (hint hint)
(Reader also allows me to follow fun contests and giveaways like this. )

If all this seems too fancy for you, did you know you can also read posts from my blog via email?  Check out the little window at the bottom right corner of my blog to subscribe.

A couple warnings about Reader though.  1) While it saves me time not having to jump from blog to blog for updates, i now read so many more blogs than before because it’s that easy.  haha.  so probably not saving much more time…   2) You can’t leave comments on a blog when you read it through Reader, so do come back to my actual site once in a while and leave some love.  =) 

So what kind of blogs do you guys like to follow?

Finally, for those who just come looking for pictures… here’s a couple cuties I got to see when we were in Hong Kong.  Love the different personalities showing through.  Thanks for the cement picnic guys!  =)
