I love Google Reader. I'm constantly adding new RSS feeds (although I've had to cut down a lot, there are just not enough hours in the day). The power of the internet as a resource for learning new things (and more about old things) just blows my mind.
Reader has a starred items feature, which is like a favorites or bookmarks list for blog posts. I've been starring items forever, but don't take the time to go back and look at them. Since Playing House is a place for me to consolidate all the things that pique my interest, I'm going to start regularly sharing some of the posts I choose to star (past, present, and future).
Yay, I'm excited for this!
