Where do you read this blog? Other blogs?

Taking an informal survey here, mostly because I am contemplating some changes in my own blog reading habits, like moving everything, even my Livejournal stuff, into Google Reader.

So help me out here....where do you read this blog of mine or other blogs?

Here on LiveJournal?
On Facebook?
Google Reader?
Jacket Flap?
Other blog reader? (Please let me know which one.)

I read this on LiveJournal. I'm not likely to change that.

LiveJournal.

BTW, Google Reader was the one that I spent two hours trying to join so I could comment on someone's blog, and gave up in disgust.

That's odd about Google Reader. It's just a reader - you wouldn't use it to comment. You'd still have to go to their site to comment. (Unless something has changed in the last year since I played with it.)

I will always be here on LJ but I think I need to organize my reading a bit better.

Read your blog on LiveJournal!

I tried adding some other blogs to Google Reader, but didn't like the interface. I also stopped imbedding my own blog in Facebook because it wasn't picking up all my images. For other blogs I read, like Blogger ones, I subscribe to the feed. Going down my list of favorite feeds is easier than Google Reader for me.

So Jama, do you have the feeds come to your mailbox or go read at a site?

I have tried having some blogs come via email but I already have to go through hundreds of emails a day that the thought of more in my email box freaks me out. :)

I read in Google Reader, but do come to LiveJournal to comment.

Thanks, Tricia. Any pros or cons to Googele Reader that you can see? I've played with it a little but I haven't made the committment to it and I think that's what I need to do if I want to get more things in one place. I figure then I could come over to LJ to comment on go to Blogger to comment, etc.

Usually on my LJ friends page, but I often get a heads up on FB or Twitter. Which I like! :)

Thanks. Yeah, sometimes I need to see a link a couple of times before I click through.

I read lj through lj . . . through google reader you wouldn't be able to see friendslocked entries. I create feeds for non-lj blogs here but you have to be a paid user to do so (not to add existing feeds, just to create new ones).
susanwrites
August 19th, 2009 02:39 am (UTC)
Yeah, that's what I've been doing, creating feeds here. I've got a permanent account. I just wish I could track favorites better and tag other people's stuff so I can find it later.

Where do I read blogs?
99.9% of the blogs I read come in my Google Reader. I found them via other blogs or by searching for a specific topic.

I'm not going anywhere...I'll still be blogging here as this is my homebase. But I need to figure out how to organize my READING of blogs because I'm either missing things or reading too much or or or ....

LiveJournal. It's my only home on the blogosphere, although I occasionally read other journals at other locations. But if I only have time to skim through, this is da Place.

Yep. This place feels most like home to me.

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
