Google Reader -- A True Lifesaver

Guest Blog Post by Geeta Shah, Public Interest Coordinator

Google Reader is a lifesaver for organizing information flow. For any blog, newsletter or public twitter account (amongst others) that has an RSS or Atom feed, you set up the 'feed' to go to your Google Reader account (just another one of the various features of your gmail account), where you can organize the various feeds by your own topics. You can star your favorites, mark as unread to return to later, and even add subscriptions to blogs that don't have an RSS/Atom feed already. This is particularly helpful to utilize when you don't want to create another account (such as twitter), become a public "follower" to a blog, or have each individual (or even digest) form emailed to you.
