Basically Google Reader allows you to keep lists of your favorite blogs - you just have to enter in the web address and then it treats each new blog post almost like email. When there's a new post on someone's blog it appears in Google Reader in the same way an un-read email looks and you can either read the post in Google Reader itself or click to open the blog in a new window.
It makes my blog surfing so much more efficient! Anything I can do to help my blog-loving friends, right?! Hope you all have a great week!
