Blogger Love

In addition to writing a blog, The Frugal Hostess loves to read blogs.  FruHo reads in a bunch of different categories, and a few of her favorites are listed at the bottom of this post.

Back in the day - like, 2003 through 2009, maybe - TFH used to have a folder in her Bookmarks just for the blogs she checked every day (it was called, creatively, Daily Blogs).  It was always so disappointing to go to one of her favorite blogs and find nothing new posted.  But last year, she learned about RSS and set up Google Reader, and her life has been forever changed.

Now, TFH is not going to pretend that she can explain the technology behind this, but she will say that any avid reader of blogs who doesn't use a Reader is wasting precious time checking individual sites.  Basically, every time a new post goes up on one of the blogs you subscribe to, it is delivered straight to you so that you don't have to check.  FruHo encourages you to set up your own Reader and subscribe to this blog there!

To make things easier, here is a short video that describes how it works.

The Frugal Hostess subscribes to 64 blogs.  Here is a small selection of her favorites:
