Looking for Quilts with Google Alert

Don't have time to look all over the Internet for information day-in and day-out?  Create a Google Alert, and the information you want will be spoon-fed to you on a regular basis for as long as you want it!

You first need to have a Google account, which is absolutely free.  If you have Gmail or a blog on Blogger, you already have a Google account.  If not, create one of your own by going to https://www.google.com/accounts/NewAccount .  Follow the directions to create your own FREE account. 

Next, you want to create a Google Alert by going to

http://www.google.com/support/alerts/bin/static.py?hl=en&page=guide.cs&guide=28413

You can search for anything you want!  For example:

  • Create a search for your name and find out whenever anyone posts anything with your name on it
  • If you're traveling to a certain area, create a search a month or more before your trip with the name of the area and get regular information to learn more
  • Do you love dogs?  Toss in a few words related to the breed you love and get daily information
  • Quilter?  Put in the kind of quilts you like!  [Amish quilts, applique quilting]

You can create more than one alert, and you can tell Google how often you want information sent to your email inbox.  You will get information from Google Web Search, Google Blog Search and Google News.  

Google Alerts are like a daily gift you give yourself!   Give it a try!
