i enjoy reading online: it's click after click of all the information you want (but not ever actually need). i'm just a wannabe techie-geek but i recently taught a friend a few tricks for using the google chrome browser. among all the cool extensions to make web surfing easier, i'm particularly fond of the ones i use to manage the many blogs i follow. considering how sporadic blogging can be (particularly my own), here's a better way to checking blogs for updates:
first, an RSS subscription extension lets me know when RSS feeds are available for the site i want to follow. when it appears on the address window, i can just click on it to subscribe to the feed using my google reader account.
now, instead of reading my subscriptions from google reader's rather drab layout, i installed the feedly extension to showcase the blogs in magazine-like fashion. it loads up faster than feed squares (another rss feed reader) and i have less navigational problems with my tiny hp laptop that can't accommodate big display screens. plus, all i need to click is a pretty green button on my tool bar. :)
so, guess what i found in my reader today?

i'm so excited!!!
