Google reader no more from 1st July So —– NOW WHAT?
Yes! I was devastated when I heard the news, how can these silly buggers do this to me? HOW DARE YOU?
I went into panic attack mode and started blowing up paper bags by the hundred (like in the movies) and with my dogs lying buried under a mound of paper, I stared at my screen in bewildered shock. Yis! Bunch of Wallies!
Slowly, at first, my mind started to defrost from its Google induced stupor and though, still dazed, I started to grapple with the problem. “When in doubt, Google it or restart” is the answer I get from my ex resident now only visiting occasionally Geek techy, after he sarcastically said “So what?”. “SO WHAT!” I screech the stupid bums have or are going to cut off my water and lights and you say “SO WHAT” thanks very much!
“Take a chill pill Pops” he says “google RSS readers and choose a new one. Easy peasy!”
Mumble, grumble, groan and a little bad thoughts, I start on my quest.
At this point you need to understand that I haven’t a clue what RSS even means.
Home page, search, rss readers, and guess what, there must be hundreds of the things.
Sh–! I don’t know where to go or what I’m doing and start to reach for more brown paper packets. After regaining my breath I enter best rss reader and guess what? IT SAYS GOOGLE! I kid you not GOOGLE says the best reader is Google. HA! IT’S SHUTTING DOWN YOU BUNCH OF SCHMUCKS, I screech!
Struggle sweat, mumble curse and so on and on I go, not having much of a clue until I spot NETVIBES and try it.
VOILA! I can manage it from the get go. “Take that Google, Geek and all the other crappy readers that only confused me more.”
So if you’re looking for an rss reader where you can read all the blogs from wordpress, blogspot, tumblr and elsewhere plus news, twitter and facebook, all in one place, look no further, simply go to www.netvibes.com/
Goodbye Google reader, I don’t need you anymore!
