I use google reader to go around blogs, news sites, and the various columns I read. It’s convenient for me to have it all in one place. Recently, I am becoming aware of the number of folks that read me. It’s flattering, and it’s confusing not to mention a bit unsettling as well, to imagine the unknown eyes that read what I dish here. The fact remains that there are so many different ways by which a piece can be read and the reach is startling and quite far and wide for me to even begin to comprehend.
Just so I get a perspective, could I please request ones who read this take a poll below? No need to comment and delurk if you choose not to, but just a small radio button check box click? *hpmff @ my picky readers and them pinging to correct me!*
Thank you very much,
Just like you get a freebie once you take poll, elect or take a survey, this poll comes with one too! You’d be especially thrilled if you are a fan of Quiznos like me. 🙂
For the time taken to fill this survey, here’s my thank you!
Feed Demon + NetNewswire + NetNewswire (iPod Touch) Synced via Newsgator!
whoa! So I guess there really is an ‘other’ after all! 🙂
That’s kinda funny! I mean, I started reading your blog last week actually, and subscribed to it! Google Reader, I swear it works miracles! Oh, and I also use a Google homepage, and one of the features on it is my Google Reader!!
(You must have noticed by now how much of a Google-freak I am!!)
lol, yes you are, but see, so am I, so that makes us equally smart or insane! 😛
although i think i have commented once…
Yes, you have buddy (the 4th musketeer!) 🙂
Wait … isn’t the free quiznos sub available without the poll 😛 and you get free sub only if you allow them to spam you.
So you are rewarding us do you poll by spamming us … Tsk Tsk!
Dude! Trust you to come up with this logic! *hitting head*
Actually, the quiznos is unfair for folks in India. 😐 For everyone else, am sure we all own a spammers email don’t we? :p
I like sandwiches.
Me too. Favs include Panera’s mediterranean, and any kind of panini.
Sadly tho’ Panera has reduced portion sizes and I can now gobble down a sandiwch (soup-sand combo) in exactly 4 bites. 😐
I also like pickles.
Me too. The Indian kind, but surely you weren’t thinking of maavadu on your rye sandwich were you? 🙂
No, and I hope it stays that way. :-
Not a big fan of quizinos. Panera Bread is cool. The soups in the bread bowl are yummy! and yea another fav is stuff @ O’naturals 🙂
There you go…
No idea on O’Naturals, but I’d worry about all the fatty bread u eating at Panera!..but then again, you’re the one building the case against it! :p
This is my second time. Blog rolled you after first time so just hopped and skipped from there. 😀
ah! that simple eh? 😀
Bloghopped for the first time from Laksh’s Musings. Then just found your blog interesting enough to visit often 🙂
Bookmarked your blog under many blogs…guess it is time to subsribe to Google Reader as I use every other google product.
M – Thank you! Yesyes, use Reader. It’s just convenient 🙂
ahh! Thank you boosmom 🙂
Dammit wish we had those subs here in Aus…we just have Subway lol.
Google Reader it is for me, and then hop over for comments 🙂
haha, hot subs are a different taste altogether! 🙂
Click on your comment on my blog 😐
Else twitter. Yes, I’m worst of the lot, I know.
lol, not worst silly, just new. Get that darned reader for blogsakes! 🙂
Yayy!! Thanks for the free sub!! 😀 I voted btw, I didn’t just take the sub! 😛
lol, I’ll take your word for it! btw, apparently, once u print, it’s good for just 5 days after. 🙂
I read this blog via feeds and hop in to spam the comments section. 😀
Why the options: Google reader, other RSS reader and Email? All this means the same: reading this blog thro’ RSS.
One more thing you can do is to link directly to your ces mots site (Fables Header at top) instead of making people to click one more time.
Well ashwin, I wanted to see the breakdown. My g reader said 99, so wanted to check. The experiment didn’t do much anyways, coz not all took the poll 🙂
I don’t see the option to link directly to fables site in wp, or am I missing something? Clarify?
Recently learnt how to use google reader 😀 inthakumundayithe blogroll lo add chesaa
Congratulations on becoming the new proud user of G reader :p
whatis this google reader you are talking about, you interest me strangely
Girl, pretend this reader is like your neighborhood gossip queen. You don’t go around asking what happened in each house and which housewife is eating what on the sly after her home is empty, or which teen is bunking classes and loafing on the beach rt?
Yeah, so reader collects all these juicy bits and gives it to you on one platter. Whenever you get bored and need some stimulation, tap the reader, out will pour the news 😀
In case you were seriously asking me, check google settings and products 🙂
Delurking! Actually, havent been around a lot. Came across your blog just a couple of days back, but with recession and all, have plenty of time at work, so have read a lot. And its fantastic! Cheers!
Thanks Sudarshan! LOL@recession. Well, perfect time to read and write 🙂
rads – (ref. comment 13)
You’ve created a WP page for every header at the top. Try to use the “Link” thingy and see. If it doesn’t work then I guess it can’t be done with WP.com Why don’t you go for WP.org? Now is the time! Get kowthas.com or radstheblogger.com or rads.me etc.
Yea, WP.com doesn’t have that option. kowthas.com got taken 😐
How unfair you are to us from India. Grrr!
Btw, why 2 “Others” options? Took the poll, btw. And I just hop on to your blog 🙂
lol, I was wondering why no one complained yet! 😛
No idea why that happened, the 2nd was supposedly a text box!
I’m not the M who commented earlier – I delurked a while ago on your “height” post…
And bloghopping works best for me..
lol@not the M. Yes, I differentiate with your emails 🙂
Suddenly, I know multiples of the same name and it is getting to be a challenge 😀
I have T.T in my blogroll and that explains how I visit here 😀
lol, Thank you. Now am officially stumped with the survey. 😐
Participated in the poll.
Read most of your recent posts, but
commented only twice, I guess.
I type in your URL; yes, the ancient way. I used to use Reader only for the technical blogs, essentially the only ones I WANT to read. However, it’s been a while I read a post on technology. Conversely, I hardly lived a day without reading the other(fun stuff) in the past some years, typing each one of those URLs (or by being a parasite on somebody’s blogroll).
I now created a folder in Reader to house all ‘other’ blogs that I have been visiting more than the authors of those blogs.
Hey Ramesh, I remember you. Wow, some memory eh, typing in URLs 🙂
lol@visiting more than authors. I used to do that, till I discovered reader. Thanks for commenting! 🙂
WordPress Blogsurfer works best for me. 🙂 Its always a pleasure to be here.. 🙂
Ah see, there IS an other after all! I’ve never used wp blogsurfer! You just add links there is it? Nice!
I blog-hop – keeps my mind toned and fit! 🙂
Ekdum fit eh? :p
My apologies. I added you to my reader but was not courteous enough to de-lurk. Will comment going forward. Came her first through Laksh’s blog.
Oh, why apology, not necessary at all! Am glad you delurked though 🙂
