I scroll ALL the way to the very bottom of the opening page (or any page, really) and click on "Archive", just like Kitsie. I then open Chit-chat, Main, and Pictures on a daily basis, noting those topics that are blue and unread.
About once a week I read the other topics like Tutorials or Recipes or Introductions.

This Archive area has every topic posted within minutes of it appearing on QB, so I'm assured of being kept up to date.

That's exactly what I do.

This is how I do it too. For a while a few months ago I was not getting the daily digest e-mail and was disappointed. I went in through the regular website but there is something about opening up my e-mail in the morning and seeing it there like a friend checking in. I'm an early riser so appreciate that it's there early. It is a daily habit for me. I have learned so much.

I get the Daily Digest and start at the top and go through each one. Sometimes I don't read all the posts but most of the time I do. Then I just keep reading each section until I get through the Recipes. Love it!!!!

Right now I am only reading the Daily Digest, I just don't have the time to stay on the computer that long. I used to read it for hours but then realized I didn't have time to quilt and that is what I like to do most in the world. Some days there are far too many posts that have been there the day before so that makes a short day of reading.

My way of reading is about as everyone else's above. I am not sure what you mean by "my account" so please explain. Mariah

Main first, then General chit-chat (love to play the games), then In Search Of/Yard Sale, then...whatever strikes my fancy. Occasionally I'll go to the online chat room.
