Hello Feedly

Over the weekend I did a final proofing of my book and it’ll soon be going off to the printer! Exciting, it is, to see your hard work come to fruition, to hold that book in your hands for the first time and to know, really know, it was all worth it. It won’t be long now.

Now to the purpose of this post.

July 1st saw the end of Google Reader. I’d been using it for several years to follow the blogs I read. But now that’s gone. But lo and behold someone mentioned Feedly to me, and so I imported the blogs I follow to Feedly. It was really quite simple.

Now comes the whining. There always is, you know, when something is new or different from what we’re used to. While Feedly does allow me to keep up with you all, it’s not Google Reader. I found there were features in Reader that I quite liked but of course are no longer there. Over time, I expect, I’ll get used to it. What other choice do I have?

I also want to say congrats to Linda Cassidy Lewis whose book, “A Brevity of Roses” is a finalist  The eFestival of Words Best of the Independent eBook Awards. You can read all about how to vote for Linda’s book HERE. 

Now I’m curious. How do the rest of you keep up with the blogs you follow? Are you a previous Google Reader user? Are you using Feedly or some other site?
