Blogger.com versus Google reader??

Salaams everyone. I just wanted to know who out there uses google reader to read blogs versus blogger.com. I am confused about google reader. Its another way to read the blogs we follow right? Can you create a new post from google reader, or is it just to read and do you all find it easier to use??

Wa'alaykum salaam, I use Google Reader. It's really useful if you follow many blogs, because you can organize them into files, add tags or star posts you liked, or share posts with others and many other functions... Also, even if a person deletes their blog you will have the posts stored in your google reader (I'm pretty sure). Its kind of similar to Gmail, but its updated posts from blogs you are subscribed to instead of emails you are dealing with. You can't post on you own blog via google reader, for that you have to go through blogger. Hope this helped :) Best advice is to just give it a try and see what you think.

I use Google reader, because I have a Google email address. I hadn't realized there were other options, and I'm not a very high-tech person...but I find it easy to follow many blogs.

I love google reader... the following gadget is just one aspect of the reader.. although I dont know all the aspects myself... in shaa Allah I wil check them out (thanks erin!)

I also create posts from Windows Live Writer it is much cooler than the write post in blogger.. :)

I only discovered this reader thing 2 days ago but I love it. Since Im following a lot of blogs it just makes it easier to browse what everyone's writing about without having to click on each blog!
