Plugins, Blogrolls and a Cloud to Consolidate

I’m currently trying to bring some order into my online life. The first step was probably to switch from Bloglines to Google Reader, a decision I haven’t regretted one single bit so far. I had been using Bloglines for a couple of years and I was never really unhappy with it, so I didn’t even […]
