Google Friends/Reader

Apparently, Google will soon be discontinuing "Google Friend Connect" for people who don't use Blogger. If you're still interested in following my blog, I suggest using a Google Reader RSS feed. Google Reader is an excellent way to stay up-to-date on all of your favorite blogs!

How to subscribe via Google Reader: First, get a Google Reader account. (reader.google.com) Yes, you need a Google account for this. The blogs you are subscribed to on Google Friend Connect should automatically come up on Google Reader. If not, however, follow these simple steps:

Then, go on the website to which you want to subscribe. If you have Firefox or Internet Explorer, look for this symbol (it should be somewhere near the top right corner of the page):
This is the RSS symbol. Click on it, and then click on "Suscribe via RSS.'" Then follow the rest of the steps.

There are other ways to subscribe, but this is how I like to do it. For those who don't have Firefox or Explorer (or who are too lazy to go through all the steps) I will try to get a "Subscribe via email/RSS" widget to put on this page.
