As cheesy as this video could be, it got the job done. Here is a simple equation to express the range of my RSS knowledge before watching the video.
Me + Computer related abbreviations = Distress
Now, I’m more like this.
Me + Computer related abbreviations = Slightly less distress
I’m currently in the process of setting up a reader. I’m actually super excited about this. I had always seen that little orange symbol and believed the answer to it’s quiet conundrum to be somewhere far beyond my understanding. THERE IS A LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL.
Alright, here we go. It took me a couple of tries but I have officially begun. I had to copy/paste my way to success but we’re makin’ progress over here. I’m like a following fiend…or an extreme stalker, your choice. As Morgan suggested, I tried to find something that allowed me to jump straight to my reader instead of having to go through the process of logging on to Google, finding the reader and all that jazz.
(Sidebar: the table next to me is discussing their R.A. last year in Oak. I am definitely dropping all sorts of eaves.)
I just made Google Reader my homepage on my laptop. I’d put it on my super cool smart phone if it existed but it doesn’t. I still use this indestructible flip-phone with such apps as the transformer app, the break dancing app, the bitch-slap app, and the I’m-being-punted-down-the-hall-and-I’m-not-going-to-break app. I love my phone. It’s like your first car that’s super jenky but you slough it off as “character”. Too bad Betsy’s character was a love for pyrotechnics.
Wow, this Google Reader thing is pretty nifty. I’m looking at my “Recommended items” and Google really hit it right on the nose: web comics, food, celebrities doing menial tasks, how to fix zipper problems, the works. I just learned Waffle House had a twitter and they love bacon. WHO KNEW?
