it really frosts me that google is pulling the plug on something used by a ton of people, that probably is costing them next to nothing to maintain (in the grand, google scheme of things), and for which there doesn't seem to be any substitute that works as well... I want a service that keeps track of what I've read from one computer/tablet/phone to another!
so I'm trying out a couple of the options. Bloglovin' (stupid name) which I haven't really gotten past first base with, requires me to post this in order to "claim my blog" but I don't really understand why:
Follow my blog with Bloglovin
And I'm concerned that they seem to want to send me an email every time someone publishes a new post on their blog -- just what I need is more email!
Feedly (another stupid name) was easy to sign up for but I don't really like the way it presents things -- it has a list called "featured blogs" but I haven't figured out what that means and where are the rest of my blogs if they're not "featured"?
Bloglines -- I think that what I used before google -- for some reason does not support blogs anymore, despite their name.
If you've tried another service that you like, or if you can explain the mysteries of any of the ones I've mentioned, please write!
