Advice anyone?

Hi smarty furs! We need help cos mommy don't know...
What service do YOU recommend that will let us know on our bloggie when one of our friends has made a new post. We tried bloglines but either mommy don't understand or something... We visited some fur that showed on their side bar the bloggie friends that had a new post, the title and the furst line or two of the post. It sure would help us on our visiting routes so we don't miss out on all ya'lls adventures. Any recommendations sure would be apawreciate.
Hope all your weekends are full of treats!
Thanks fur any advice.
Love Licks & waggin TX tails not barking right now cos it's almost bedtime.

Hey guys! I also want that thingy where it can tell me whose blog has been updates each day. Daisy the cat (you can find her in my comments box) has that thingy. Maybe we should ask her...

Love licks,

Hi, Crikit, Sparky and Ginger!
My mom uses Bloglines (it is the only one she knows!) She does not know how to put it directly on my blog but she checks our feeds everyday going to the site.
Maybe some of our friends have a better option.
Have a good night
Kisses and hugs

Mom never could figure out bloglines but she DID figure out how to use google reader. Just go to the google page and select "more." From there you'll get a dropdown menu so then select "reader." You'll find an option to add subscriptions. It's there that you'll add all your bloggy addresses. Then each time you go to reader, it'll tell you who has updates :) Voila! It's that easy......AND it saves mom tons of time by her only visiting the blogs she knows have been updated.

First of all our pinky is a moron when it comes to computers. God knows how we even have a blog. Anyway, see that orange box at the top right of your blog, every one has one of those and if you click it you can then subscribe to that particular feed (click on our blog for example then subscribe to our feed). Then you go to the star on the left top of your blog and if we have a new post our name will be highlighted.
Does this make any sense at all..... haa haa probably not and it's not you, it's pinky lol.
We tried to understand bloglines. We asked Maggie & Mitch. Pinky still doesn't get it......sigh.

After I read your post I decided to give Google Reader a shot and I like it - it lets me know when posts update and you can read them there or click the link to go to the blog and read/comment there.

The ZOo Crew's Mom got us to try Google Reader and we REALLY like it!

Crikit, Sparky and Ginger,
My mom tried Google Reader too but she prefers Bloglines! She checks the feeds going to the site.
Have a great weekend!


Maggie & Mitch said...

We use Bloglines and visit their site everyday for updates. We've never tried anything else!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Sparky said...

Oh, thank you so much for asking this! I've always wondered how I could visit everyones blogs at once to see who has updated or not. I'll try out the suggestions that everyone said!

Thanks again for asking the question!

I hope you all have a grrrrEAT weekend!

Karl at the cat realm recommended Blogroll to us and we signed up. But we're ashamed to admit we haven't had an opportunity to use it yet. You can check with him if you want more information.

Hi Crikit, Sparky and Ginger,

We are using the Bloglines to help me keep track of the new post by our friends. Perhaps that will help.


Sparky said...

Hey fellers! I just signed up for Bloglines. It took a long time to figure it out, but it works great! What a time saver. I'm so glad you came up with this question, now I can get on with life without sitting at the 'puter for 5 hours a day! Hee hee.

We use Google Reader!

Hi Ginger, Sparky, and Crikit!
We use Bloglines, but it does get sorta confusing, and it kinda messes up. So if you find a good one, could you tell us about it? We might consider changing it.
Wags and licks,
Maya and Kena
PS. Yep, we're back on our paws after the long time of rest from the pawty! :D

Joe Stains said...

we use bloglines also!

Drunkbunny said...

I can't figure out how to get my blog to show I've updated. I go to sites that have blogrolled me, and there are asterisks that show next to the links in the blogroll if the blog has updated. My blogs are supposed to "ping" sites to put asterisks by me too, but they never show.

I go to each site manually because I love looking at people's layouts just as much as I love reading their posts! But maybe that's how I get so behind on my blog reading!

Hi! me and my niece use

It works pretty well. If you find a better one, let me know!

The Daily Echo said...

Mom's been using Google Reader and seems to be doing okay with it. It's the only one she has tried so far. If she falls behind I told her I'd have to fire her so she's real careful.

Chef said...

That's something about Google my Mama didn't know. She's going to use it too! Thanks for the info.

Hope you are all enjoying a happy weekend.

What a great post! We have not been very happy with the Internet Explorer feature that allows you to subscribe to feeds & see when they've been updated. It's easy & it works, but it's soooo sloooooow! Days can go by before it figures out that something's changed. Ditto Bloglines. Love it for keeping the list of paw pals, though. Especially the one-click feature.

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Hehehe! Me and my twinky head of a human have no idea what your talking about! But I hope you get it figured out! If I knew I would totally tell you guys!!!

Also, National Stuffie Appreciation Day is May 8th! Bring out the best pictures of you and your favorite stuffies!

Mr. T-Bone Beasley!

Our Mom uses Bloglines. It does take a while to set up but is great once it's done.


Deetz said...

I want to know too.....

happy said...

Good question. I've signed up for Bloglines but still can't quite figure it out. Is Google Reader any easier?

duo_disaster said...

I think we need that too!
Let us know when you sniff out something yeah?
