Several moths ago I participated in Lent with a friend of mine and gave up Facebook and Twitter for 40 days. The results of this was (after a few days) I didn’t miss it anymore. Today I rarely check twitter unless I am in a meeting, I do this to give my sub-conscious brain something to focus on so my conscious mind can pay attention. I know, I know, it sounds crazy, but it works. Now back to the topic. I am only on Facebook for 5-10 minutes (give or take), and I have about 23 Blogs and Websites I check on a daily basis. These 23 blogs and websites I enjoy, but I have noticed the want to have these websites post more often. I find myself disappointed so often when I go to check these sites and find no new content. Looking at this from a positive point of view this disappointment has helped encourage me to start posting on a daily basis.
Despite the fact that I have been disappointed from time to time by the lack of new content I thought I would share with all of you some of my favorite blogs and websites.

Try using an RSS reader, such as bloglines or google reader. It won’t solve the problem of the sites not updating like you want them to, but it will save you the bother of checking them. These products will inform you as soon as the sites have new content in one easy place. Very useful.
Do RSS readers work only on blogs or do they work on websites too?
Anything that publishes an RSS feed. Websites can do this. Many do, some don’t. Nearly all blogs do.
Hey, thank you for including me in that list. 😀
