I used to spend upwards of 2-3 hours a night going through all of my favorite blogs, reading and checking for updates. While fun and entertaining, it was not exactly the most efficient use of my time. I recently stumbled across the Google Reader and am in love. I uploaded all of my blogs URLs and the reader checks them for updates so anytime I go to the reader, it shows me which blogs have new updates. LOVE IT! You definitely have to check it out!
