Over my Christmas vacation, my brother in law Alex introduced and consequently sold me on Google Reader for all my RSS needs. For those of you who don’t know what RSS is check it out on Wikipedia and then go get your Google Reader setup to handle all the RSS feeds you will undoubtedly start monitoring.

As many of you know I am a serious blog stalker. I monitor about 70 blogs daily. Doing that all in a browser was tedious so I started using RSS and never went back. I used to frequently email people about stuff I had seen or wanted to share. Also tedious. So with Google Reader you can setup a cool little thing to go on your blog or website with all your shared stories as links in it. You will now find all the stuff I choose to share in a little box on the right hand sidebar of this blog entitled “around the web”. Some may interest you some may not.
