C'mon Sheeple!


I just became a follower.

Not of the Jesus.

Not of Xenu.

Not even Buddha.

No, I just started using Blogger's Reading List feature and widget. I was hesitant at first because it didn't seem different from Google Reader at all. And I already import my Google Reader feeds (most of them) onto the Blogroll on my sidebar. So why did I do it?

I dunno. I was bored. It's raining out and Notre Dame sucks, so there ya go. But there is one cool feature that it has. It will tell you how many other bloggers out there are following you. That's kinda cool. You can even put a new widget on your sidebar which will show all the bloggers out there who are following you through this feature.

How neat! How utterly wonderful for us ego-maniacs. Now we can tell exactly how many people are following us, hell-bent on listening to every word we say.

So how many followers do I have?

One.

Thanks, Lotus!

I read you through google so I'm "following" you too. I guess there's no perfect tool out there.

One stalker at a time is all most people can handle.

Britt - yeah, I know. This was my ego talking. Not me. ;)

Teeni - my girlfriend often calls me the perfect tool. Too much info?

Michelle - consider it done!

Evyl - I've been known to handle a few.

I tried it, but I ended up with more followers than the Pope. Out of respect I removed it from the confessional wall.

B.E. Earl said...

NMTB - My faith runs closer to your idealogy than the Pope's. I'm stickin' with ya!

Mrs. Hall said...

Is the google reader a place to put all the blogs I read in one place? Will it alerts me when there is a new post by those blog authors?

My method now is to go to ajooja and just click from there. Not really efficient!

B.E. Earl said...

Mrs. Hall - yes. It is a feed reader, meaning you put in all the blogs/sites that you visit and it will alert you to new posts as they happen. I find it pretty helpful since I have about 60 blogs that I read.

B.E. Earl said...

Slyde - a girl can change her mind, can't she?
