You know you are addicted to blog reading when you choose to do that over watching TV and/or you browse blogs while watching TV and have to pause the TV show to read a particularly good post. Yes, I do that. :-)
Still being fairly new to the blog world I was frustrated with how to best keep up with blogs I was following. I used to go to my dashboard and click on individual blogs that were at the top of my list since those had the most recent updates. That was too time consuming and didn't allow me to get through most of the updates.
One day I happened to notice the "View in Google Reader" link and WHA-LA! My eyes were opened to a whole new method for tracking, reading and even sharing blogs with others. I'm not sure if reading blogs in this manner allows the bloggers to know their blog has been read by recording it as a "page view" though. So on post that are particularly interesting to me I will click on them and go to the actual page so that it's counted and oftentimes, those are the ones I leave comments on. Hmmm...if only Google Reader would add "Leave a Comment" to the main reader page would be awesome!!!
How do you track the blogs you are following?
