I am caught up on reading blogs. I had a week and a half of e-mails of new posts in my inbox and I finally sat down and for the last hour and a half have been reading the posts. Now I need to add all the new blogs of you ladies to my feed reader!

It's a thing that "reads" the RSS feed of the blogs you tell it to "read." I use FeedBlitz which sends me the new posts in e-mail. There's also bloglines, google, etc.

I use a reader so I don't have to check the blogs each day manually.

No. I did google for e-mail feed readers. I used to use google's feed reader, but some people update their blogs so rarely that I couldn't remember if I had read their last post or not since the time had passed for the color of a clicked link to be different so I wanted the new posts e-mailed to me.

I just added a lot of new ones to my favorites. I hadn't even realized that so many had been added.

I've gotten everyone's blogs on my blogroll and added to my RSS feed reader as well I think I need to organize my blogroll links somehow. The list is getting pretty long.

Okay, I got my blogroll a little more organized. Friends' blogs, homeschooling blogs, random blogs, non-blog links... Of course some are blogs of friends and homeschooling related but I just put those into homeschooling. At least it's a little better.

I just gave in to the homeschool blog thing, so be sure to add me!

And I'm off to look at the feed reader idea. That seems so much better than going through my "blogs" folder in my bookmarks!

Added you... but the RSS feed on your blog sends me to Ron's Atypical Homeschool feed...?
