I wasn't really happy to hear that, but have been looking around at a replacement reader - at this stage, looks like Feedly is the winner for me ;-)
It flows just like Google Reader, just a click and you are on your way ;-) perfectly painless ;-)
My lists/favourites are all transferred over - I have chosen to view my list in the 'full article' view, and they are marked as 'read' as I scroll down - just like Google Reader - if the Blogger has chosen to show only part of their post in a reader, I click over to the actual blog to read the rest of the post - just like Google Reader.
I have found a wealth of information over on the Feedly blog HERE.
So ......... so far so good ;-)
You can subscribe to my blog utilising Feedly by clicking on the 'Subscribe To' button on the right hand sidebar, and selecting "Atom" (select Posts or Comments), then Feedly opens up. It is here you can Add it to your Feedly reading list and put it in any of your categories/faves. If you wish to change categories later, just click on the blog in the Feedly list and click on the 'edit' button - you can then select/deselect which category the blog can go in ;-) easy peasy! I love reading my blogs by category - I can just read my 'Quilting Aussies' list, if I am wanting to see what is happening here in quilting blogland here in Australia.
Just an observation .............. it looks like Blogger will still have the 'Reading List' available at the bottom of your Blogger Dashboard, so you can continue to read the blogs you follow that way if you wish.
Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day.
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)
Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.
