Dumb question

Call me slow, but how do you (yes, you) read other people's blogs? Right now I go down my blogroll list and click each persons blog. But I am 99% sure there is a better way... it's probably terribly obvious, but will somebody point it out to me?
Thanks in advance for not making fun of me. Unless you do, in which case I probably deserve it.

Edit: Thanks everyone! I signed up to be a clicker for lost and found and was starting to freak out thinking about literally having to click on each of the blogs. I went ahead with the Google Reader. Of course, this will probably keep me from clicking on everyones blog 200 a day. Your views are all going to go down. Probably. Maybe. Ok, maybe not.

  1. Uh, I do the same thing. I'm sure there are fancier ways to do it (rss feeds?). But I like the old fashioned click-n-check method, myself.

  2. I use Google Reader. You sign up for an account (which you probably already have through blogger) and then subscribe all of the regular blogs you read. Every time there's a new post, it shows up in your "updated" list. I LOVE IT.

    Let me know if you need help figuring it out...

    I never could figure out the RSS feeds.

  3. I use Google Reader. The only downside, imo, is that you can't read the comments posted without a separate click-thru on a post.

  4. I also use Google Reader. I really enjoy it; it's very easy to setup and you don't have to wonder when someone posts because new posts pop up automatically.

    Wordpress has a similar "reader" in blog accounts, but only for other wordpress blogs. I'm not sure if blogspot has that same feature.

  5. I use bloglines.com So easy even *I* can use it. And that's saying something.

  6. Bloglines.

    But, a warning . . . it makes it too easy to start reading TOO many blogs!

  7. I love the google reader. Sometimes it can take up to an hour for a new post to show up on google reader (I know - I subscribe to my own blog) but it's so easy. You just add all the blogs you want to the reader and every time there's a new post the blog shows up in bold in your blog list.

  8. i do it the same as you - i don't use feeds or google reader. I don't always comment the first time around, so I have the select few I click on daily.

  9. Ooh, I'm so glad you asked. Because I do it the way you do it. But this Google Reader seems pretty groovy.

  10. SUCH a good question. But I am not even smart enought to have even considered that there would be another, easier way. Bravo. Going to go check this google reader thing out now.

  11. I feel really dumb and technilogically inept. I didn't even know there was an easier way. How bout that.

  12. I used to use bloglines, but it takes longer to update and screwed up a lot. I love my google reader!!!

  13. Bloglines, girl. Learn it, live it, love it! Fabulous cause it tells me when there's a new post to read. Allows me to follow many more blogs then I could if I had to check 'em all by hand.

  14. Thanks to the power of the internets, I'm now running off to subscribe to Google Reader.

  15. Ooh. You asked the question that I wanted to ask. I signed up for the "in the beginning" clicker, and I, too, was fretting about clicking through all the blogs every day. Yay! Now I don't have to!
