Bloglines posted some days ago that they will officially shut down on October 1, 2010.
To say I am annoyed is an understatement. I yelled HELP and luckily hubby responded. I don’t want to figure out how to transport my 256 feeds to another RSS aggregator! They can say it is easy, but from experience it usually isn’t. My first response when hubby entered my study was, what is an RSS aggregator? My second question, can you fix this for me?
Then came the next important question, which RSS aggregator am I now going to use? I didn’t put much effort in my search. I knew Google Reader provided this service, so after some nagging, hubby exported my current subscriptions from Bloglines to .
Here is a screenshot of my Google Reader page. Naturally you will have to put some effort in finding out how Google Reader works. There are some nifty features, like ‘Google trends’. I’m sure I haven’t found them all.
So let the 1st of October come! I expect I won’t miss Bloglines. If only life’s problems could be fixed so easily.
I now can keep up with all your quilt adventures and not worry about missing out. So keep on posting your creative efforts. I’ll be watching you.
