Want to organize your blogs in one Reader? I have found Google Reader to be THE tool that I have used the most the last several months. Here is a great article including a short video on how you can set up and use Google Reader.
Also — I use IGoogle to create a home page that displays my email, Facebook feeds, News Feeds, Weather Feeds, Google Docs and Google Reader feeds, + the ESV Bible and a few other things. It is also simple to build and quick to update.
I simply do not remember to go to a whole list of sites and places to update or gather information.
To build your IGoogle page go to Google home page and at top Choose MORE and then scroll down to EVEN MORE. Scroll down to I Google and it walks you through.
