works-for-me-wednesdayWelcome to the Red and Honey inaugural edition of Works-For-Me Wednesday, a fun little carnival hosted by We Are That Family. I am totally loving the blogging carnival thing, and hope to make them a regular occurrence on this blog!

My WFMW tip for this week is something that approximately 98.6 percent of the blogosphere has probably already heard of.

But I’m going to use it anyway. Because I just discovered it a month ago or so, and it is SO TOTALLY AMAZINGLY FABULOUS that I can’t even believe I didn’t have it before.

Google reader, where have you been all my life?

It is so simple and amazing, saves me so much time, and provides some good “surfing” when all I want to do is sit for a minute and relax while the babe sleeps. I subscribe to mostly the mom/homemaking/natural living/humor type of blogs, which all keep me sane during those long days as a SAHM when my only social interaction is a 6-month-old, and 3 cats.

(At our house during weekdays, most conversation consists of  “agah, goo gah, dadadada”, and “yay squash! so yummy!”, and “good job bubba, you burped/pooped/peed/babbled, etc”).

Intellectual stimulation… not so much.

So, I pop over to my google reader, see what’s new in the blogging world, and feel connected to the real world for a few minutes.

Worth it’s weight in gold, I’d say.

(Yeah I know it’s on the internet. I’m sure if it had a weight though, it would be a zillion billion tons. Right? Right.)

What tips do you have to share? Do you have a feed reader? Am I really the last person in the internet-lovin’ world to have one?
