Questions, Questions..

Answer me something, will ya (actually a few somethings)?

Do you use a feed reader to read your blogs such as Bloglines or GoogleReader, ect., or do you just randomly click the blogs that you like to see if they are updated?

If you DO use any of these, which one is it, and if you have experience with more than one, what do you like about one over the other?

And last....are your toenails painted or are they au naturale?

RED toes, baby...*hot* for summer time. i think i'm scared what they would look like au naturale.

the whole bloglines deal. well i tried it but i didn't last long. there is just something for me to flip through my blogs that i love and see them for myself. so i don't miss out on new looks, photos, etc. the reader dealie seemed like getting an email w/o seeing the whole picture. go figure!

Sometime last year I switched from Bloglines to GoogleReader. I like GoogleReader better because it seemed easier to use. It's more intuitive to me.

Au naturale, baby!

I have red toenails. I try to keep them done and not all trailer trash chipped looking.

I don't do any types of readers. I have a favorites list and methodically go down the list every day to see if there are any updates.

I don't understand the whole reader thing...you learn about it and then explain it to me in a few weeks, K?

hot pink toes.
I use BOTH bloglines and google reader. (sorry, but I'm a freak)

I've been keeping both to see which I like better, and they each have their perks. I've had bloglines longer, so it's like an old pair of shoes....still loved, but older. Googlereader is that new pair that you love...but don't want to hurt the old standbye's feelings. So I wear both.

Hot Pink...to match my new hot pink flip flops.

Bloglines. I just use it to see when there is an update and then click on the blog. Sometimes the pics don't show on Bloglines.

OH, and you can't comment either. You have to go directly to the blog.

Can you comment on Google Reader?!

Kathleen aka Coffee Mom said...

I use Google Reader but I have also used Bloglines. I definitely prefer Google, for me it's easier.
And the toenails? Yes- painted all the time, right now they are orange, but normally they are some shade of purple :-)

3girlsmom said...

Randomly check blogs. They are bookmarked so I just click down the line.
Nude-ish painted toenails. B-O-R-I-N-G.

Bloglines.
Scott uses Google reader but I don't know anything about it.

Toenails are painted, of course!

Reformed Grits said...

Painted. They have stayed painted since I was a preteen I think. If I take the polish off, I have to hurry and put it back on before anyone sees that horrid color that is now my toenails. But I bet if I hadn't hurried so fast keeping Bee's painted the other day I wouldn't have spilled half a bottle of hot pink on my relatively new light beige ultra-plush bedroom carpet. I would have rather have swallowed bunny diarrhea... but that's another story altogether. ;-)
Oh, and Bloglines. Cuz I'm lazy and don't want to have icons for 45 blogs on my desktop that I have to click with compulsion to see if anyone has posted... Yea, but you can't comment from bloglines. Only thing I dislike...

DidiLyn said...

Sparkly white polish. Because I am a sparkly white girl.(huh?)
I don't use either because I can't figure them out. So I was glad you asked this question. Let me know what you decide.

Kent said...

Toenails---just got back from getting a pedicure. Painted always--color this time is strawberry something.
I do not use any readers--I need to learn about them. I just have a favorites file and I click down each and every blog I read--about 80 at present.

Kent said...

I just got to thinking that some of your readers that are not local may not realize that I am female--my name throws some people!! I am all girl--just with a weird name!!!

I use google reader. I had a bloglines, but I just prefer google. No reason that I'm willing to spend time analyzing.

I don't read the blogs in the reader. Not very often, anyway. I usually click over to the actual place.

And I don't know very many people who can do toenails natural. Do you?

DidiLyn said...

Yay! I went right over to Google Reader after I read this and signed on up. I will try this for a few weeks and see how it works for me. Thanks!

Gayle said...

I use bloglines because it works and I hate change even though I've been tempted by google.

Toenails? ALWAYS painted with french white tips.

Distybug said...

Bloglines...painted. Glad to be of service!

javamamma said...

I use bloglines because having something update me is sooo much of a time-saver! Really.

And my toenails are nearly ALWAYS painted. Right now, bright pink.

Lora Lynn said...

Sassy hot pink, baby!

I use google reader. love it.

Halfmoon Girl said...

I use Google Reader 'cause Kathleen told me to.

My toe nails are bright blue. I know, interesting choice, but my feet are pretty au natural (unmanicured), so I thought I better go for quirky toes, instead of trying to pull of dainty.

Holly said...

I use no readers, just click, as I have time to read. So sometimes I catch up on a month somewhere.

My toes are pretty pink--the color is called Cherry something.

KarenW said...

Gotta have my toenails painted for the summer!

I use Google reader. Bloglines was confusing to me and Google is very simple.

Way More Homemade said...

Toes are au-naturale. But I need a pedi to go with my new tan. ;)

I'm so new to blogging that i've just been saving ones I like to read in my favorites and clicking over. However, I've been thinking about it recently and I may try google reader and see if I like it. - Been thinking about it recently... like it's some HUGE decision to make. Sheesh.
