Google Reader…how I love thee!

Ever since switching from Blogger to WordPress I’ve had problems. Problems like having to check each of the 1,839,593 blogs I like to read individually! I know! Ya see…Blogger offered its users a nice RSS feed option where they could subscribe to their fav blogs and be told when each blog was updated (I know you all already know about this…)! WordPress however, only offers this feature for other WordPress blogs…I read approx. 5 other WP blogs so it was of no help.

Last week I saw the light…well actually I was helped to see the light by Kevin. Thank you thank you. Google Reader has made my blogging life so much easier now…I just read all my blogs there and know when each one has been updated, it’s glorious. And I know how behind the times I am with this post…it’s embarrassing actually!

Now can someone help me with bringing all my old Blogger posts to my new WP site? I don’t want to lose the 2 years that I spent over there and would love to have a bulkier archive section…any ideas?

    To import your old blogs go to Manage, Import, then choose the Blogger link. Let me know if you’re still having problems. I enjoy your writing keep it up!
