Farewell Google Reader
On June 30th I took what was probably my last look at Google reader then spent much of the afternoon trying out some of the other options: Bloglines, Bloglovin, Digg Reader, Feedly, NewsBlur, Pulse, The Old Reader, and Yahoo Pipes.
That’s when I became totally confused; as I didn’t get the hang of Yahoo Pipes at all.
With one eye on the Tour de France, I decided to forget about trying to figure out which of the above options did most of what I wanted from a new reader; sorted some my subscriptions into regions and imported them into my own website instead. I also updated the feeds on the Travel Notes toolbar.
I had been wanting to clean up my blog reading list for a while and finally had the solution I needed, especially for those who might still want to follow the old travel bundles.
