Oh Good Grief ...

I am so embarrassed. All day today as I've been hopping all over the Blogging Kingdom, I've seen the word "Google Reader" and I've been scratching my head wondering "What the heck are they talking about?" I've been trying to figure out since I started blogging how I was going to remember who I was following, resorting to putting the sites in my favorites  (now... that's what I call a nice jumble of urls ). Imagine my surprise when I opened up my Dashboard and scrolled the page ALL the way down. ROFL hello .. Google Reader !! So, after looking through it, amazed at how it makes everything so much easier, I can say for sure that I follow 46 blogs. Like I said, I'm so embarrassed :D

Don't worry, it happens to all of us. But, on the bright side, now you can clean up all those links! :D

oh and P.S.. I LOVE your Quote of the week from Iron Kissed. That is my favorite Mercy Thompson book :D

It definitely took me a little while to figure that out as well. Don't feel bad:)

Jules@OneBookShy said...

I think we all started there so don't feel bad at all!

BTW, I can't believe your photos from the last hop - I've bookmarked the page so I can show my husband that I'm not alone (although you have me WAY beat :)

I just found you today on the hop and am a new follower. Can't wait to see what you come up with next.

Jules,

Ummm about the photos... those are only half of what I have. I have another 4 shelves full of books !! I don't know how it happened but it's plainly out of control. You won't hear me complaining though :D

Hope you're having a fun weekend

Yes, google.com/reader = best thing ever :)

Alison said...

Haha...I was you a year ago. Now I may name my first child Google just to show my love for Google Reader.

Yep, a about a year ago, I was confused too. But it's all good now :)

Thanks for stopping by my site and following! I'm your newest follower XD

Don't worry, I did the exact same thing when I started following blogs.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and for the follow. Nice blog you have here.

Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday. Personally, I follow more blogs than I officially "follow" on Google Reader, so it's not an accurate total for me, but it does at least provide an official number, eh?

Ahhhh you poor thing. We all learn the blogging thing the hard way.

BTW, I love your perfectly precious pink blog layout :)

Heather said...

I can't help laughing, though I found GR right about the time I started blogging. There are probably at least 100 links in mine by now, not all book/writing related.

BTW, love the Gena Showalter quote!

Kelli (I'd So Rather Be Reading) said...

Don't be...I've been blogging since April and just discovered Google reader too! :)

Am following you now.

I'm still learning as well. It took me awhile to realize I could "schedule" posts...it was like the clouds parted and music started playing when I realized that!!!
