Google Reader: Making Life Easier

Note: This isn't spam, or some advertisement. Its a sincere recommendation.
This isn't super art related, but still helpful. I've been using Google Reader the last few months, and its extremely helpful. It creates a kind of "inbox for the web". You just add the address to your favorite sites/blogs and it tells you when you check your google reader inbox if new items have been added to those sites. Its great for blogs cause then you don't have to go clicking around to check to see if anything new has been added. It also doesn't show/load a bunch of advertisements and other banners when you check those sites. This probably doesn't make a lot of sense, so scope out the link below, and try it out. Be sure and add the Abominable Art Blog feed. (a "feed" is just an address). Its really easy to use, its just like gmail.

Here's a video introduction:
