Exactly as the title says: how do you read your horse, cooking, professional, and other blogs?
Do you keep a series of bookmarks and check on them?
Do you use the Google follower/listing service?
Do you use an RSS feeder?
Do you use some combination of the above?
I ask, because at the time of Google Reader’s sad, tragic, unforgivable demise, I had been using it religiously for many, many years. I exported all my RSS feeds to The Old Reader, as it promised the most similar service. I really just want to read: I don’t need bells and whistles.
Well, The Old Reader is now moving to a subscription-based model. Anyone with over 100 feeds will have to pay a small fee. I have 219 feeds and growing – in fact, I have about a dozen on a waiting list right now, since I can’t add any more until I pay up. (And even my existing feeds will be inaccessible soon.)
The small fee is worth it to me, but, it’s just enough to make me think about exploring other options. So I’d like to do that, however briefly.
Anyone have any ideas, suggestions, or words of sympathy about my grieving process for Google Reader, which I still miss nearly every day?
