Bye Bloglines

So my feedreader, Bloglines, is closing at the end of the month.  I’m sad to see it go, I’ve been using it since Ryan from The Humanaught introduced me to Bloglines in 2005, as a way to get round the Great Firewall and read all the banned Blogspot blogs.

I like the simple black-on-white style, which makes it easier to read posts from bloggers who don’t always agree with me on colored text, popups and automatic music. It also makes it easier to read blogs while slacking at work, um, not that I ever do that, I’m a model employee and you should totally hire me. (Don’t look so shocked. I have more than twice the hits on weekdays that I do on weekends. You’re all reading this at work, too.)

It’s the end of an era for me. I guess I’ll try out this new-fangled Google reader contraption all the kinds are talking about.

    Yeah.. I realized that I was spending too much time slacking at work with my Google Reader so I switched. I’m now using NewsFire for Mac. It has a really clean interface and reads the OPML format so I was able to fairly easily transfer all of my old feeds to it.

    Now if I could just figure out how to cut down on the twittering at work.

    I’ve heard good things about a bunch of other readers, but I haven’t been motivated to leave Bloglines. I guess if it’s not broken, why fix it?
