How to use Google Reader

More about Google Reader.

It allows you to check all the webpages that you routinely check for updates in one conveniant location.

There are a lot of different places to do this but if you already use gmail this is your easiest choice.

To set it up and use:

At the top of your gmail screen - select "more", then "reader". (Google frequently changes the layout of their main page so Reader may already be a choice in the top panel.

Once at the Reader page type in the urls of webpages you want to know when they update. This will "subscribe" you to their page. It does not necessarily need to be a blog.

After you have added your pages, check as often as you like in one location to see if all your favorite websites have added any updates.
