RIP Google Reader

Grief.

It takes a lot out of you, doesn’t it?

I’m still missing Google Reader, but with time (and possibly some grief therapy), I know that I will be able to accept this loss and move on.

For now, there’s the WordPress blog follow, My Yahoo, and subscribing via email.

Sigh.

And I’m aware of my part in GR’s death–thanks to Facebook, I no longer blog as much as I used to. Facebook allows me to stay in touch with friends, family, colleagues and people I have not seen in years. Facebook is a fast and easy way to communicate. Now that I’m blogging less, I find posts harder to produce. My brain is not used to crafting quality posts anymore. I’m going to try to do better, post more often, and give my brain more exercise.

I’m finding WordPress a good blogging platform. It’s easy to use, and to stay in touch with other WP bloggers.

In local news, summer in Seattle continues, with temperatures in the 70s and 80s, some rain showers, but still quite warm. Mind blowing!

Wishing you all a great weekend.

  1. I use Feedly as a replacement, it took a bit of tweaking to get it how I liked, but it’s fine now 🙂
