Sixteen days left until Google pulls the plug on Google Reader. Like many, I have used GR for years to read the bajillion blogs that I like to peruse. Frankly, I am a little pissed that Google has decided to quit the project. It could be a pain in the ass for me and for a lot of people who like to read blogs, news feeds and othe RSS type stuff.
Now, the question is what the keck am I going to use to replace Google Reader? I have looked into a couple of options. One had promise, but it was a reader that was in beta test release. I don't think that I want to part of a test project. If it doesn't work, properly or isn't accepted by the RSS feed reading public, it may just go away. I don't want to go through switching readers again in a few years, I just want to find something that works and stick with it.
FEEDFLY seems to be a possible option. It appears to be an easy migration from GR and it appears that many who use it like it. There are those however who do not like it.
I am not yet sure what I am going to do, but time is running short. I would like to make whatever move I am going to make sometime before June 29. I no longer like making decisions under the pressure of time constraints, so I will try to stay ahead of this one.
Any ideas that you all might have will be appreciated.
Thanks, Google for bailing out on me.
Thanks to you for reading,
