It really is a shame that Google Reader is shutting down on Monday. I have relied on the service to keep track of all of my favourite blogs and websites for years now. It’s the first thing I open in the morning. I love having all of my favourite sites available to read in one location.
I’ve tried a few of the replacements over the last two months since the announcement was made that Google was doing away with their reader.
The problem is that I haven’t found an alternative that I am really blown away by. I like the relative easy and the interface that Google gave us. I will continue to use it right until the moment they pull the plug.
If you read me via Google Reader you will need to find a replacement. Feedly
is a good option as you can easily transfer all of your subscriptions from Google with a single click.
Make sure you find a replacement so you won’t miss any of the great content here at Silent Cacophony.
If you don’t use an RSS Reader, nothing will change. If you want to get content delivered to directly to you, use the buttons on the sidebar to subscribe by email or with Feedburner.
Thank you for your readership all these years. It means a lot to me. I don’t want to lose you as a reader simply because one tool will no longer be available to us next week.
