Google Gab- Google Reader

30 Sep

Today’s installment of Google Gab comes a day late.

So far I have covered Google Search and iGoogle.  Today I will discuss the the tool I use as much as iGoogle and Google Search- Google Reader.  Google Reader is a great way to organize the blogs that you read.  I figured it would be much easier to show how to use it than to explain it in words.  Then I found a couple of excellent YouTube videos showcasing ways to use Google Reader and how to set it up.  So, why reivent the wheel??  Here are some excellent tutorials on all things Google Reader!

Very Basic Tutorial on How to use Google Reader

Adding Subscriptions

Viewing RSS Feeds

For more Advanced Users- Organizing your feeds

A special thanks to expertvillage for the tutorials.

You can also add you Google Reader to your iGoogle! I have mine fed there and I can keep track of all of my blogs on my iGoogle page.  To add this, go to your iGoogle Page and click on “add stuff”.  Search for Google Reader and follow the  prompts.

**Please note-  My schedule has done a lot of changing.  From today on, I will post Google Gab Tuesday evenings.  Thanks to all of you who are subscribing or coming back each week!
