UPDATE APRIL 2013Update July 2013. Google Reader is now discontinued. Long live NewsSquares :-)
Google Reader is getting discontinued in near near future. I recommend you try the new Google Chrome app named NewsSquares which is the follow up to FeedSquares and actually makes it easier if you want to follow a lot of (whisky)blogs. If you, like me have used Google Reader + Feedsqaures before, you can easily transfer what you follow to NewsSquares
I often hear people say, that there is a lot of whisky blogs and similar sites out there, and it's too hard to keep track and read all of them and they can't really be troubled to follow them
"I just read Whiskyfun and Malt Advocate" is a sentence (or similar) I often heard in the past. Well, I honestly think the whiskyworld has more to offer, than just a handful sites like the two mentioned.
A good whisky site needs 3 things first of all
1. Well written
I actually follow around 60 blogs and the number is raising. I enjoy reading blogs from all over the world. I even sometimes sidetracks to cocktailblogs (I had a great input from one at my recent James Bond post here)
How is that possible ? For a start I have a lot of them feeding on my facebook and twitter profile, which can be handy. But it's not perfect. The way for me to easy track all these sites is to use some help from google. First I use google chrome and NewsSquares
NewsSquares can be found HERE
NewsSquares displays all blogs, that you have added, as a grid of squares, where it's very easy to keep updated with new posts and get access to added websites and their recent posts.
NewsSquares will appear as an icon when you open a new Chrome page. If you go the NewsSquares' Options you can set it up to your likings, like adding an "unread counter" on the icons which is very handy or setting NewsSquares up as "Home Page". You can set NewsSquares up to follow many places, not just regular blogs.
I highly recommend NewSsquares to anyone who likes to follow the fast world of online whisky :-)
Kind regards and have fun
