I live on a sustainable family farm and work for a humanitarian aid organization. My goal is to have a simple beautiful life. The Quaker acronym SPICE (simplicity, peace, integrity, community, and equality) guides my life.
I haven't been very good about keeping up with blogs lately. Beginning February, I decided to cut down on time spent browsing the internet and made two major decisions: 1) to abandon facebook for the month and 2) to temporarily limit my blog reading to 10-15 blogs. I had all of my blogs in Google Reader so I was able to create a special list for February for the blogs I had chosen to read. I also knew that once the month was over, I could go back to all of the other blogs in my reader. Well, I haven't been good about reading even the 10-15 chosen blogs and I seem to have extended my internet break into March. Imagine my surprise this morning when I decided to do some catch up reading and was greeted with a message that Google Reader would die as of July 1! I'm not a techie so I don't understand all the reasoning behind its demise. (If you're interested, you can read more on Wired.) The question is - now what?
