How do I use the Blogger Reading List?

Blogger is adding a reading list capability.

This is great if you have a favorite blog and want to follow the posts of another blogger. You can keep track of the blogs you follow via your Reading List on the Blogger dashboard.

How to become a Follower of a blog

According to Blogger, there are several ways to become a follower of a blog. One of the easiest ways is to visit a blog that has added the Following widget and click on the "Follow this Blog" link under the "Followers" widget:

You'll then see a popup window with the options to either follow publicly or anonymously:

Select how you'd like to follow the blog, then click the orange "Follow" button. It is that simple, you are now a follower of the blog!

If you elected to follow the blog publicly, your profile picture will be displayed on the blog with a link to your Blogger profile (Note: The widget may not show all followers of the blog. If this is the case all followers will be linked from the widget).

When you become a follower of a blog, the blog will also be added to your Reading List on your Blogger dashboard. Additionally, you can become a follower of any blog or URL (even if the blog doesn't have the Followers widget) by adding the blog to your Reading List on the dashboard.

(Note: We are slowly adding this feature for all users, some of the functionality may not be available to all users immediately.)

The Reading List

It is simple to add a blog to your Reading List. First, click on the "Blogs I'm Following" tab under "My Reading List" on your Blogger Dashboard.

Then, click on the blue "Add" button in the bottom left corner of your Reading List.

Next, insert the URL of the blog you'd like to follow in the URL box. You can add as many blogs as you'd like by clicking on "Add another". When you have added all of your favorite blogs, click the orange "Add" button.

You'll then be given the option to either follow publicly or anonymously:

Once you've decided on following publicly or anonymously, click the orange "Follow" button and that's it! You've added all your favorite blogs to your Reading List! Now, every time one of the blogs are updated the latest post will be displayed in your reading list under the "Items" section.

Additionally, adding a blog to your Reading List will create a subscription to the blog in your Google Reader account.

I love this idea because it makes the blog world a freindlier place. I hope it works out without any "known issues" though.
