Darn It

Darn that Google Reader.  I know I'm a little late in the game to be complaining about the demise of Google Reader.  I thought I was ahead of the game.  I saw they were leaving me and I thought, fine then, I'll just leave them first.  So I did. 

Bloglines seemed simple which is what I wanted so I went with it.  I didn't enjoy it as much as I did Google, but hey it was fine.  And then about two weeks ago, I couldn't get it to load.  So I just clicked onto the blogs I read and it was fine.  But then I tried again the next day and it still wouldn't load.  I was patient.  I didn't want to change again.  I don't like change.

But today I'm done.  It still won't load and while I am keeping up to date on my very favorite blogs, I still want them all in one place where it's easy to read.  So I looked up alternatives and feedly seemed like the obvious choice.  That is until I tried it and it too will not load.  I clicked around a couple more, and it seemed like the same story.  One site told me I would get my content for free, in a few months when everyone else ahead of me had gotten on.  Um...no.

But then I lucked out and clicked on Pulse.  OOoohh!  It's pretty!  (Imagine me saying this as a two year old would, because that's how I feel).  And the blogs.  They load up so nice.  And it's quick. 

So darn you Google for making me change.  And thank you Pulse for (so far) seeming so nice. 

*Also, I think Pulse can be loaded on my new Android.  But I'd have to figure out how to use this new fangled phone first. So that probably won't happen.  Like I said.  I don't like change.  :)
