Confession-- I only started using my Google Reader right before Bloggiesta.
Sad, I know. I just hadn't really paid attention to it before. After all, the blogs I follow come up on my Blogger dashboard, so who needs it, right?
Turns out, I do. I use it all the time now.
But you know, I think it's making me a lazy reader.
It's too easy to just skim through everything. And comments seem like so much more work now!
Take yesterday, for example. I had around 22 new items. I skimmed a lot of them. Went through them all, category by category. (I love that you can categorize them!)
Did I click through to the blogs? Nope. Maybe on one.
And therein lies the problem. If I don't click through a) they don't know I'm reading it and b) I don't leave comments.
Shame on me.
As a blogger, I know that I like to look at stats and I love to have comments, and yet here I am, not giving any love to my fellow bloggers! Shame shame shame.
Just another case of technology making us lazy, I suppose.
How about you? Do you use your Google Reader? Are you on it right now? Did you click through? Go ahead, click through, I dare you. :D
