Grab Bag Friday: How to Keep Track of Your Favorite Blogs

There are a lot of options for keeping track of your favorite blogs. A lot. Just click on the "Subscribe" or "Bookmark" buttons on the right sidebar to view a sampling (and that's not a tricky ploy to get you to bookmark this blog...you're free to just look at the options, I promise!) If you are reading this blog, chances are, you have tried out a system or two. I personally use Google Personalized Home (especially now that they have sweet little themes like the "Tea House"...see below). I know people who find RSS readers like Bloglines to be convenient and efficient.

But what if you don't want to set up a Bloglines account? What if setting up even one more page to check daily makes you want to pull your hair out? What if you just want to get a simple email telling you when your blogs have been updated?

Well, I just came across Blogarithm which is a service that does just that. If you're looking for the simple life, this may be right up your alley.

  • One email a day gives you links to all the blogs on your list that have been updated in the previous day
  • If a blog hasn't been updated, it doesn't show up in the email
  • You can create categories for your blogs
  • You can put the email updates on vacation hold anytime you like
I'm still sticking with my friend the fox, but I'm going to test Blogarithms out for my on-the-go sister...I have a feeling she is going to love this!
