Bloglines was the first feed reader I stumbled upon way back when (i.e. when I first figured out what an RSS feed was), and I’ve been using it faithfully since. Even when support sort of disappeared, and it stopped pulling in Livejournal updates, I still stuck with Bloglines because I’m lazy that way.
I set up a Google Reader account and transferred the LJ feeds over, but still kept Bloglines to read other blogs, which meant that my subscriptions were split between the two – a bit messy, but it worked.
Last week, Bloglines went offline for quite some time, and I finally bit the bullet and transferred all my subscriptions over to Google Reader. Which was a lot messier than it sounds, because of my existing setup that meant subscriptions were either on both readers or on one but not the other – I’m hoping that I haven’t lost any. Also, I had quite a lot of unread posts in Bloglines, and all the Google Reader posts came up as new ones, at which point I sort of gave up and hit that wonderful button “Mark all as read”. Relief.
So. This was a rather long-winded way of saying I’ve probably missed most of the posts published over the past few days.
