First off, I’m gonna keep on makin’ these things until you tell me to stop, or until I get better at them, or both.
Second, uh…off, I’d originally intended to do a screencast on Evernote, my favorite digital scoop-’em-up device, but then Evernote decided to take the site down for a little maintenance right as I was getting ready to roll, so I went with Google Reader instead. (Look for a doodly-wah on Evernote at a later date.)
While I do my my best to be entertaining as all get-out, those of you who are already web-savvy may want to skip this one. There’s a bit in there about some tricks I use to keep my GR nice and tidy; you can skip to the last third of the video for that portion, including a visual demo of the excellent Gina Trapani‘s excellent Better GReader add-on for Firefox.
But if you only ever read this site by actually going to the site, or if you only read sites by subscribing via email, you’re in for a treat!
Here’s the video. Click on the button with the four arrows to make it BIG, baby:
At some point, I’ll figure out how to actually edit these and make them slick and purdy. Until then (and even after), I’d be most grateful for your feedback. Too long? Too short? Features I’m blipping over?
BONUS TIP: from commenter Claire, to only show the blogs with updates, click on the downward arrow tab next to “Subscriptions” and select “Show Updated.” Nifty! Anyone else?
