One thing I've struggled with in this digital civilization class is time. It takes me a while to read through enough blog posts to find something worth saying about one of them.
Enter Google reader! As I said on Betsy's blog, I am a doubter when it comes to simplifying life by adding more technology to it. Doesn't that seem counter intuitive? In this case I believe I was wrong.
Google reader allows me to quickly scan all of the blogs I follow without jumping around to different websites. I then can decide which ones to read more carefully and comment on. Brilliant!
