Some new blogging features

I added a new feature to my sidebar that I think is kind of cool. It keeps track of my top commenters. See?

It calculates it by the last 100 comments made on the blog. I think it's fun to see who comments the most. Later, when I less busy with diapers, bottles and tears, I'd like to start doing a weekly or bi-weekly feature on the top commenter. So keep showing me the love :p

There's something else I wanted to share, since I was so happy to discover it.

I feel so out of the loop by not knowing about this sooner. I mean, it was right there in front of me. I'm sure everyone probably knows about this already, but just in case I'll share. 

If you follow blogs just through Blogger or Google friend connect, I'm sure you've come across blogs that are hosted elsewhere and have no option for following that way. Well as I just discovered, you do.

On your blogger dashboard, scroll down under the list of blogs you follow. You see the 'ADD' button. Click it. 

Put in the link or any blog you want to follow and it's basically that simple. Now they will show up in your blogger reader. I wish I had discovered this a long time ago! 

Ps. If you're following 300 or more blogs through Blogger, it wont let you add any more unless you go under 300. How lame is that? Or maybe I'm the only serial-follower. Who knows.

Aww I'm a top commenter :) What a neat little application.

Woohoo! I think I'm #2 :)

Actually, if you have more than one blog, you can follow over 300. Or at least that's what I've been told

And I had no clue you could add blogs that way

Woot!! I'm number 1!! It helps that I had a few posts to catch up on. :) That's a cool little feature. And I didn't know Blogger capped the number of blogs you could follow. Good to know.

Added blogs to your reader that you can't "follow" is really handy - I use it all the time!

Do you read your blogs through blogger or through Google Reader?

There is a button that you can access through reader that will let you automatically subscribe to any rss feed, I use google reader to follow and read all of my blogs! It comes in so handy to be able to organize everything into neat little sections :)
