A solution to the google reader conundrum

As some of you may know, google is discontinuing google reader as of July 1rst. Why? I do not know. I have to deal with a government agency on a regular basis and for the most part these interactions are frustrating and nonsensical. This agency had a certain way of doing things that worked perfectly fine and for some reason  they changed their way of doing things and their new method does not work at all. When I complained about this to my mother in law, wondering why they had "fixed something that was not broken", she said "They changed it because it was working!"

I had to laugh. Maybe it's the same with google! Anyways, there is a very simple way to follow the blogs you have been following via google reader. You can actually follow any blog, including word press blogs, in this way. I contemplated writing my own tutorial on this but I would actually like to spend my spare time making minis instead. So I asked Brae from blog for permission to provide a link from her blog explaining how this is done.

Most bloggers don't mind if you include a link to their blog, but I always ask. I think this is just good blogger etiquette. Brae said she will probably write a full tutorial about the upcoming changes regarding google reader, but in the meantime, this short explanation is fine.

Here it is! While you're at it, be sure to scroll through Brae's blog and look at her lovely creations in her Etsy shop.

Ok, time for me to get back to my minis!

So long my friends!




  1. good that you posted about this..i am quite confused about it, especially as i haven't seen anything "official" on google..just people mentioning it. will go to the link!! Thank you!!! :)

  2. Hi Ruth thanks so much for posting this, as Anna says..I too am quite confused about this :) Well I will just have to include this in my list of things to do this week! Thanks again!

  3. I am not even sure what Google reader is!

  4. Your mother in law is a wise lady. thanks for the link.

  5. I agree with your mother, that's the reason we have ABS brakes and all this computer crap on cars that we don't need...basicly all you need is a radio and if you have to call someone you need to pull over instead of driving into people

  6. I love change. NOT!!! They are so annoying constantly changing things. First they say "do this it's so much better". Then they say "no it's no good after all." Thanks for the heads up about this.
    Happy Easter!

  7. Hi Ruth! Thanks for the heads up about the up coming Google Reader changes!
    I heard the news with the voice of doom thundering in my ears, I am techno-challenged and I also hate change, unless I'm in charge of it! So for now, I shall continue to stick my head in the sand and hope that it will go away.



I love hearing your feedback. Thanks for leaving a comment!
