To update you on the status of my Google Reader use I checked my trends today and found this short overview about my usage: "From your 324 subscriptions, over the last 30 days you read 14,388 items, starred 177 items, shared 35 items, and emailed 43 items."
Needless to say, I like Google Reader. I find it to be a very useful way to keep track of my favorite blogs, to find new blogs through my favorites and to organize and compile of my favorite posts through starred items and tags. I am keeping a tagged list of posts about gardening to help me out this spring with the new garden my husband and I are planning, tags about crafts and things I would like to try to make eventually, tags about cool design ideas or resources, and on and on.
Here is a list of my favorites:
Rolling Dog Ranch Animal Sanctuary - it always brightens my day to read about Steve and Alayne's latest efforts
Hostess with the Mostest Blog - great for entertaining tips and ideas
Robin's Nesting Place - great gardening ideas and inspirations from a fellow Central Indiana resident
GiggleSugar - always good for a laugh or a pick me up during the day
Worst.Mama.Ever. - I am not a mom yet, but these stories still make me laugh :)
Itty Bitty Kitty Committee - another great website to warm the heart
Design Sponge - amazing
Creative Curio - Learn, discuss and explore the realm of Graphic Design.
