Are you missing Google Reader to keep up with all your favourite blogs?
I certainly am, and it didn’t help that it’s demise coincided with over a month away from home, going flat chat on a task. Once you get behind it’s a very slippery slope to catch up, that’s for sure.
Prior to the the dreaded 30 June deadline I had imported my links into WordPress Reader and also into Feedly. I’d even practiced using them as well. But still my heart lies with Reader. It was so easy to keep up via the iPad and short comments were manageable.
Recently I happened across one of the geneabloggers who uses Bloglovin’ (sorry I’d give credit if I could just remember whose it was!). So now I’m sampling that as well.
I do like Bloglovin’. I’m finding it a little easier to keep up with the reading and commenting and it gives me an added push by sending off a daily email of published posts (which I could also do with Feedly).
Of course what doesn’t happen if I flip between the programs is that they each don’t recognise that I’ve already read a particular post, so I do need to settle down to use just one. At the moment I’m leaning towards Bloglovin’.
The further complication is that we have an original iPad which won’t let me upgrade the ios to cope with many of the apps I want to use. So now my smart phone is given the job to keep up with the blog reading.
How did you resolve the dilemma of Reader’s demise?
