Say It Ain't So - Google Reader

Bluescreen error
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?

Good Morning, Cherie, I, too, have cut way back on time spent reading and commenting on blogs, I've even cut back on my own posting. I don't know if it's the time of year or just the ebb and flow of life.... we shall see, but I continue to be grateful for our connection.

I moved over to Wordpress a year ago and haven't regretted it one bit - and it moved everything over in 2 seconds, super easy.

Not sure what google reader is though...?

I know! I just logged on and felt the same way.
