Where do you read from?

November 25th, 2007
General, WordPress

I have always wanted to ask this question from my readers since I believe that the answer would help me provide more ways receive the information that is posted on this blog (and help WordPress users). Since I came across this cool app for Facebook that allows you to attach polls to your Facebook pages, I added it to the Facebook fan page. With that in mind, where do you read

The poll embed code is not behaving. If you want to vote, please visit the facebook fan page, click on “View polls for” and vote there. I should have used a better polling plugin like the one from GamerZ. When I get the polls plugin installed, I will update the post with the right information. Till then, please leave a comment.

Thank you for being patient and I apologize for the confusion!

    One of the coolests features WP has is the hability to show your posts on my blog’s dashboard, so yep, that’s from where I read your blog. Anytime a post title looks appealing, I just click it and I’m here :)

    Wouldn’t it have been preferable to put the poll someplace where everyone who reads can vote?

  3. Michael (3 comments.) says:

    Google Reader is where I read 99% of my feeds, including

  4. Catherine (1 comments.) says:

    I mostly read this one at the WordPress dashboard, although if it weren’t there I’d have it in Bloglines. I’m not a facebook member.

    I read using Outlook 2007 RSS feeds feature. Sometimes if I only have the web available I read through Google Reader.

  6. John (2 comments.) says:

    I only read what shows up in my WP admin page.

  7. Allen (3 comments.) says:

    I read this blog from the wordpress dashboard. ^_^

    click into WTC whenever I see a new post in the WP dashboard

  9. Sydney (1 comments.) says:

    I read it in my feed reader. Every once in awhile I come to the site.

    By the way, Facebook wouldn’t let me find the poll. I hate Facebook sometimes. It always made you add applications to do anything. It’s ridiculous.

    Both GR and WP admin page…

  11. Matt (1 comments.) says:

    I, too, just click on the WTC button whenever I see something new on the WordPress Dashboard

  12. Jake (3 comments.) says:

    From Google Reader.

  13. gestroud says:

    I used the Cleaner Dashboard plugin to disable the dashboard feeds (which take forever to load), so I usually check out WTC on WordPress Planet

    Oops, is mispelled in the title of this post.

    Thanks for the catch! Indeed it was, :)

  16. S.K (15 comments.) says:

    It beats me as to why folks whine about the Dashboard feeds. It helps us in keeping an ear to the ground and get to know latest bytes on WordPressosphere!

    And WTC does a yeomen service in this direction.

    Needless to add, I jump to WTC from my dashboard. I didn’t feel the necessity to add it to my aggregator since I visit my blog’s admin pages almost daily!

    I read from the WordPress Dashboard. My favorite posts are the New Plugin Releases! Always something interesting!

  18. Sarah (3 comments.) says:

    I read from Bloglines :)

    We all have our individual preferences concerning our sites’ appearances and performance. It has nothing to do with “whining.” To each, his own. :-)

    I, too, read this site first from Bloglines.

  21. Heather says:

    I subscribe to your feed via Bloglines. Works great for me. And I really rely on your blog, by the way, for new about new plug-ins and themes.

  22. Audrey (3 comments.) says:

    WP Dashboard. :)

  23. Len says:

    Your feed appears in my blog’s Dashboard. I realize there are plugins to circumvent that but I’d prefer not to. Having your feed, along with Matt’s, Lorelle’s and others, help me keep up to date with what is going on in the world of WP. ;)

  24. Bob (8 comments.) says:

    Another vote for the WP Dashboard. (I can’t vote via Facebook anyway, because Facebook is blocked here at work.)

  25. Chris (26 comments.) says:

    At first, the question made me think “which city and state?”, but after reading the comments I guess my answer is WP Dashboard.

  26. Chuck (2 comments.) says:

    WordPress Dashboard. Where else? ;)

  27. Andy (1 comments.) says:

    I read it from the WordPress Dashboard also. But I am at work and facebook is blocked. Even if it was not blocked I still would not go to it. Why didn’t you just put poll up here?

  28. Mark Ghosh (386 comments.) says:

    The poll embed code was poor at best and really screwed with the format. I will put a poll on here, just have to get around to it. :)

  29. Kurt (1 comments.) says:

    Google Reader primarily. WP Dashboard occasionally.

    The WP Dashboard

  31. Marisa (5 comments.) says:

    Google reader but I usually stop by here once a day anyway.

    WP Dashboard.

  33. Sergio Alvaré (1 comments.) says:

    From dashboard. & from Asturias, Spain ;)

  34. bakkouz (2 comments.) says:

    I read it almost always from within the WordPress Dashboard :)

    Via WP Dashboard :D

  37. Metta (4 comments.) says:

    Also via Dashboard.

  38. andy cochrane (1 comments.) says:

    i read your posts here on your site, but i find them from the wordpress dashboard.

    WP Dashboard.

  40. Jeffro2pt0 (164 comments.) says:

    Whenever there is a new post on this site, I generally see it in my WordPress admin dashboard and then click through to view the article.

  41. Scott White (21 comments.) says:

    Google Reader, Gregarious Aggregator, Live Reader… whichever one strikes my fancy at any given point…

  42. Mark (5 comments.) says:

    I read you from the dashboard. If that option was not there, I would fire up bloglines or google reader (I use both depending on my mood).

  44. Trisha (16 comments.) says:

    Google Reader is what I use to keep up on a wide variety of blogs, but WLTC is at the very top – I check it nearly every day. WP Dashboard is nice, but since sometimes I post via email or my phone, I’m not in the dasboard as frequently as I am on Google.

  45. Cody (21 comments.) says:

    I just read posts here. My WP dashboard notifies me of a new post, so I click on it and come straight here. I don’t read enough blogs to justify using an RSS reader, plus I like to be able to read and comment without any clicking in between.

  46. Christoph Voigt (2 comments.) says:

    Dashboard :) I found it’s the easiest way without adding “another” feed to my already large list of feeds in Google Reader.

  47. BigNerd (4 comments.) says:

    Google Reader. And I get PISSED if there isn’t any new content each and every frigging day.

  48. badMike (6 comments.) says:

    I come via my blog’s WordPress dashboard.

  49. construk (1 comments.) says:

    WP Dashboard.

  50. Bill says:

    From the WP Admin page.

  51. Matt (23 comments.) says:

    Dashboard all the way – I hate to say it, but a good portion of my WP info comes from that thing. It’s just too easy.

  52. Jenny (28 comments.) says:

    I read it from my feed reader, but I see the updates in my WP dashboard.

  53. JW says:

    Google Reader

  54. Halina (3 comments.) says:

    AWASU – my preferred feed reader

  55. Stephen Cronin (30 comments.) says:

    From the dashboard in general, but I have the plugin updates feed in my feed reader. At the moment I’m using Google Reader – I prefer using a desktop reader, but feeds with a feedburner URL are blocked here in China (not an issue for a web-based browser like GR).

  56. ArtZ (1 comments.) says:

    Bloglines. That’s where I read pretty much everything. I find it annoying when I have to actually hit the “o” key to open up an actual web site.

  57. Juanpa! (2 comments.) says:

    From my blog’s dashboard

  58. Rob says:

    Mostly from the WordPress dashboard, but occasionally from Google Reader.

  59. Pi (2 comments.) says:

    Since I dislike the cxlutter on the Dashboard, and many of the other links there are of considerably less interest, I have Weblog Tools Collection in my Blogroll and click through regularly from there.


  60. Planet Malaysia (1 comments.) says:

    Same here. I read your blog from WP dashboard.

  61. Brian (1 comments.) says:

    This may be a shameless plug, but I read it from my own feed reader at

    WP Dashboard. It was there when I woke up this morning.

    It’s a pity that I can subscribe to your rss feed, But I add this blog in my favourites.

  64. Matt says:

    I read it on my Netvibes page.
