Works for Me Wednesday: Google Reader

It's Wednesday, and that means it's time for another "Works for Me Wednesday" tip, as hosted by the blog carnival at We Are THAT Family. See this week's Works for Me Wednesday here.

Both A. and I would agree that computer applications available through Google are invaluable! We'd like to highlight Google Reader today because it saves us SO. MUCH. TIME.

Google Reader uses RSS feeds to check websites and save them in one place. It's like having another email account, only it tracks information from websites. For example, you can view the posts we write at Redemption Unlimited in Google Reader. We keep up with other deals blogs, personal friends and family blogs, news blogs, etc. It's a great tool, and it truly saves tons of time.

Yahoo offers a similar service, so if you already use Yahoo for email you might want to try Yahoo Reader.

To become a Google Reader user you must have a Gmail account. If you'd like to start one, send us an email at redemptionunlimited(at)gmail(dot)com. You can add Redemption Unlimited to your Google Reader subscription list by clicking on "Add Subscription" in the upper left hand corner and typing into the field. Voila!!

Did you know that when you "follow" us via Google Reader, you also have the option of seeing items that we share from other blogs (which also appears lower on our blog page in the right-hand column)? We think that this is a great way for you to get to know other bloggers we follow and admire - who you might like adding to your Google Reader subscription list as well!

Google Reader works for us!
