Blogger "Follow" Feature

A short post to encourage you to start using the "Follow" feature on Blogger. I didn't understand what it was at first, but now I'm using it and it is amazing.

Just go to your dashboard, scroll down to the Reading List section, click the blue "Add" button at the bottom, and paste in the URLs of blogs you want to follow. It doesn't email you when the people post, which is what I thought. Instead, it aggregates blurbs from all your favorite blogs whenever there are new posts - right on your dashboard. It shows a slight excerpt and then a link so you can click to read more. Tonight when I get home, I'll augment this post with a nice screenshot so you can see what it is for yourself.

Regardless, this is a terrific feature. I never have time to go check all my friends' blogs, but this way I can just scroll through and see new posts. It's fantastic. Try it out and follow me!
