What’s a blog reader? A blog reader, or newsreader, is an application that checks for new articles on blogs you have subscribed to and then pulls them into your blog reader so that you have all new articles from all of your blog subscriptions ready for you in one place when you are ready to read them.

The instructions, below, are for the Google Reader blog reader.  Google Reader is free and works in most browsers.  There isn’t any software to install! You must have a Google account in order to use Google Reader.  You can sign up here.

There are other blog readers such as Bloglines and Newsgator.  If you are already using these, you know how to use a blog reader.  If you wish to use a blog reader other than Google Reader, please consult that reader’s directions found on their respective websites.

Here are the directions to receive new articles in Google Reader.

  1. On the 8000 Brilliant Women blog page, click on the button, In Your Blog Reader.

  2. If you already have a Google Reader account, you will see this screen.  Click on Add to Google Reader.
  3. Enter your Google email address and password.  If you don’t have a Google account, click on Create an Account.  A Google account is free. Once your account is set up, go to Step 1.

  4. You’re done! Here’s how your Google Reader looks!
