New Reader Button!

I love stumbling upon new techy what-cha-ma-call-its. Ok.  It may not be new to the world, but it's new to me!  I hope you find it helpful as well!

I read many blogs.  Thank you to GoogleReader for sharing new posts every day! (Another great creation!)  There are probably hundreds of blogs that I've retracted from reading because the blog page itself wasn't visually pleasing to my eyes.

Too much.
Busy, busy.
Buttons all over.
Hate the font.
Small print.
Dreadful colors.

I'm sure I missed out on valuable learning and thinking because I didn't read the blog.

Guess what?  No more!

I discovered the "Reader" button in the address bar in Safari. (Click to enlarge. See purple Reader button.)

Click on the link to the blog.  Click on the "Reader" button and it's easy on the eyes!  It brings forward just the blog post, darkens the background noise, and is perfect for your reading pleasure! You can also zoom in, zoom out, email, and print!  Without all the "extras" on the page!

Go ahead! Try it out on my post. Click that "Reader" button!

Now, doesn't that just make life a little happier? :)

Side note:  I'm now noticing that my favorite little "Reader" button is not showing up on some blogs.   Thoughts?

  1. I responded on Twitter because I thought you were talking about something else---I like this. There are some blogs I do that to also. This will help.

    In my google reader on my start page, new posts show up as they are written, and they come up in a smaller version of this. Makes reading blogs a little faster, too!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
