Blog Readers

So... Google is cancelling Google Reader to make everyone switch over to Google+.

{wry look} I'm not going to play that game. I suppose in another few years, they'll cancel that to make folks join Google++, and a few years after that, Google * or something.

I'd rather find a provider who will continue to provide the service that attracts their customers in the first place. Preferably without changing every around every few months like Facebook. Yes, of course I can learn to use a new system each time they dump an old system, but I'd really rather not have to. I have more interesting things to do that I'd rather not drop periodically to learn a new system. {lop-sided smile}

I don't suppose anyone has any suggestions for a reliable blog reader that won't keep changing stuff and dumping users all the time? {Wistful Smile}

  1. I'm been trying out Feedly, too. With a little tweaking, it's working out pretty well.

  2. Thanks to both of you. I was rather overwhelmed by the advertising when I first looked around. I'll have to check them out. {SMILE}

  3. No suggestions here, but I can sympathize with the sentiment.

    1. Thanks anyway, Chicory. I mostly got out of Facebook because I plain got tired of them changing things several times a year. {Smile}

      It's just... when I'm using a provider like Google or Facebook to keep up with my friends, I want to spend my time on it keeping up with friends, not learning how they've changed things around this time. {Wry Smile}
