Social Media Tips

How do you read blogs?

Do you read this and other blogs at the actual site (visit

Do you use a feed (RSS) reader like Google Reader?

Do you wait for the weekly email summary of all posts?

Do you subscribe with your email and receive the daily feedburner email?

Do you use a Kindle or other wireless reading device?

Did you know there was so many ways to read this blog and others?

I use a combination of tools – feedburner email, Google Reader, and direct site visits to read blogs. By simply looking at the stats I know a few of you are using a Kindle – Amazon’s wireless reading device (which was on my 2009 Christmas list but Santa did not deliver. Oh well next year).

Use the comments area to tell me how you read posts. Let me know if you would like to see the blog converted to an iPhone app. There are some low-cost tools for me to convert the blog to an iPhone app and I am considering adding this as a feature.

If you are Kindle user subscribe you can subscribe to at the Kindle store.
