I was just writing about how time consumming blogging is. Its so time consumming that the only way I can catch up with reading blogs is to read them from a feedreader. I use the web based bloglines feedreader to read blogs.
During my early days of blogging, I used blogrolling and it helped me to know when certain blogs were updated but a feedreader is much better. When you subsribe to the feed of your favourite blogs, you can see updated posts on the left pane of your pc and you can view a summary of those posts on the right pane. You don’t have to leave your feedreader to visit your favourite blogs. This cuts down my blog hopping time a lot.
My bloglines feedreader allows me to paste a code on my webpage so that the blogroll on my blog gets updated whenever I subscribe to a new feed or delete one from my existing subscription. I did not paste the code on this blog though so this blogroll is very outdated. So if you don’t see your link there don’t despair. I’m still reading you through my bloglines feedreader. Haha.
The blogroll on my blog is definitely obsolete now. I no longer click on the links there. The reason its still there is because I like to see my link on other blogger’s blogs so I suppose they would probably like to see their link on my blog too. Lol!
Is your blogroll obsolete too?
i m using the google reader, so far, so good and it is pretty easy to use. not sure bout the rest though..
Maybe I will check out google reader… but then that would make my bloglines obsolete. Hahaha.
Long time tak da update liao. He! He!
I’m too lazy to update now. 😛
My blogroll is for the pleasure of others, not for my own use.
I create a dedicated html, just to hop from blogs to blogs. I just need to click on the link, and it will bring up the webpage. Save me all the typing.
Wah you so hardworking ar to create a dedicated html.
Hehe in spite of your efforts to teach me I still do it the old fashion way, hopping from one blog to another like headless chicken, often revisiting blogs I had already visited because lau liso kenot remember where I went.
Aiyoo lau char boh oi lau char boh. You should try out google reader then. Its simpler and it’ll save you a lot of time so you can blog hop even more loh.
Never update , never click on it.
I read the feeds through bloglines. So if you change template I also won’t know. 😛
Haha. Donch lah like dat. WhenÂ you comment I’m sure you would notice my template. Lol! Anyway, I don’t have time to change templates now.
I use Bloglines as well to keep track of blogs. Still use my blogroll though to check out replies to comments I made.
I use my computer history tab to check out replies to comments I made because I can’t remember which links I visited. Hahaha.
