How to Unfollow Blogs or "Reading List" on Google [Non-Technical]

This is a very non-technical post, but I could not find ANY information about unfollowing blogs through Blogger without directly going to the blog and clicking a bunch (which from my point of view is INCREDIBLY annoying to say the least) so I thought it might help a few people out.

I had this problem that I somehow had a ton of random blogs followed but didn't feel like going to 100+ blogs and unfollowing them individually. After a lot of searching I finally came across a very random post that would not intuitively come up via a search engine.

Blogger's help suggests to go here on the main page and select the settings wheel seen here:


The problem with this is there's a broken link (at least for me on all my browsers)...


Well, I finally found a fix for this stupidity and it's really simple. Go to http://www.google.com/reader/settings and then the "Subscriptions" tab, then select the blogs and hit "Unsubscribe".

Bam, done. Took way too long for me to find that, which I don't think is my fault (who looks under reader settings when it's through Blogger?).

Also, please fix the "Reading list" error -- it's been like this for months.
