As many of you know Google Reader will be axed come July. Buh-bye! Gone! Fin! Google has so much going on lately I can’t keep my head from spinning. Most days of my life are spent cowering in fear to open my browser and load up www.seroundtable.com because it is NEVER good news.
Someone hold me.
Possibly the worst offense is Google cutting off Google Reader. I happen to be Team Google Reader! It’s such a daily part of my life and it hurts my feelings they think it’s a great idea to snap their fingers and make it disappear. The general idea is to migrate the herds towards using Google+ more but honestly, Google+ sucks and axing Google Reader will likely not make me make a move towards embracing Google+. Actually it just makes me hate Google a little more. Ok, not true, when Google is good it is very good but when Google is bad…it’s VERY bad.
If you follow me via Google Reader I’ll disappear soon from you. Let’s not lose touch and let’s not force you to use Feedly *cringe, shiver, revolting I just threw up in my mouth a little face*
Might I direct you to Ye Old Reader? Visit theoldreader.com and you can take ALL your current Google Reader subscriptions and plop them right into Old Reader.
It’s simple, basic, and has a very Google Reader-like interface. Simplicity for me is sometimes great and The Old Reader is exactly that, SIMPLE.
If you don’t use a reader no worries!
I’m causing trouble on all the other social media sites as well so you can follow me on:
Now take a moment to bow your head and have a silent moment for Google Reader.
I shall mourn her with you when the time comes to say good bye!
P.S. Happy Weekend by the way! It’s a cold, rainy one in Gotham but I have a ton of great plans for the weekend and I won’t let the weather get me down!
Exit post humming the imperial march.
