Google is retiring its RSS news-feed service as of July 1.
Here is a link to a recent BBC news article about the closure:
Fans braced for Google Reader's demise flock to new services
If you have not switched yet,
here are the links to two bloggers
who have written extensively about the options:
David Lebovitz of Living the Sweet Life in Paris
Kaly of Kalyn's Kitchen
I decided to try my luck with Feedly Cloud,
but was initially stopped in my tracks when
I clicked beyond their log-in button -
the first line "this app would like to"
asked for more than I was willing to share:
"View basic information about your account",
i.e. name, public profile, photo, birth date, etc.
I realized only today, that I only needed to let them
"Manage your data in Google Reader"
And here I am, looking forward to continue reading
your blogs! If you cannot find your blog on the list,
would you please be so kind and let me know?
A wonderful Sunday to all of you,
