~A Change~

Today I made a change...after being a loyal Bloglines.com subscriber for over three years, I switched to Google Reader. Since I have less than 30 blogs I subscribe to, it didn't take me too long to switch. I think I'm going to like it. It is different, of course, so I'll have to get used to it.

I was just fed up with Bloglines. Today I opened the feed reader and it said I had over 5000 posts to read. Ha. As if 30 bloggers had typed that many posts overnight!...and when I cleared them, they came back again. I was getting frustrated. If that were the only problem, then I would have just dealt with it. But lately I have been missing posts from certain bloggers, then all of a sudden the last two weeks worth of posts would show up. Etc., etc., etc.

I've put up with a lot of bugs over at Bloglines in the last three years, we'll see how Google Reader does!

Tammy, I recently switched to Google Reader for the same reason. It has more of a learning curve than I anticipated, but it's nice.

Just wanted to say a little "Hi!" :O)

Mishel said...

I switched too and like Google Reader SO much better!

Monika said...

I also switched from Bloglines to Google Reader - I think you're gonna love it! :)

Jodi said...

Yep - I'm in the process of gradually switching over, too. My son has been encouraging the switch as he already did it and is much happier!

I've only used Google Reader, but I love it.

Michele said...

I've been wanting to switch but had a hard time figuring it out. LOL (o;

Tammy said...

Well, I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one!

Michele said...

Yay, I figured it out and made the switch! I got fed up when I tried to get into my Bloglines and once again couldn't get in.

I switched, too. My account was giving me the same problems for a while, and I finally had had enough of manually clicking over to each blog nearly every day trying to figure out who had posted and who hadn't. There are some aspects I miss, but I am more acclimated to Google Reader now, and I'm happy I made the change! :o)
