Google Reader Trends

I'm glad you guys enjoyed Harley's post! He's such a gentleman, is he not?!

Most of you probably know that I use Google Reader to track my blogs. Some of you probably might start using Blogger's version, but I like Google Reader for a few reasons:

1. I'm on gmail all the time
2. My calender is a google calendar too
3. It lets me track all sorts of blogs, not just blogger- wordpress, or any website you frequent (I like mentalfloss.com!)

Today it gave me the coolest thing (well I read about it-) you can get graphs of your "trends" and also for the trends of your subscriptions. For example:

This blog tracks the time of day, blue being blogs I subscribe to posting, and red being me reading those blogs. I love how you can tell what the first thing I do every morning is!!!! It's very interesting, so if you use Google Reader, hit "trends" and check it out! My trends tell me that: "From your 73 subscriptions, over the last 30 days you read 707 items."

Man, I must really like you guys!

I'm still learning how to use blogger, up until I found all these wonderful puggie blogs I'd been doing my personal blogging on Livejournal. So much to learn!!

That's pretty neat! I might try to use Google reader instead of Bloglines...
And I loved Harley's post! He is so adorable. Annie sent him a great sweater! (She is the best, thanks for introducing us to her!)
