Bye, Bye Bloglines...

We are seriously annoyed!  Our RSS feeder, Bloglines, is shutting down Oct 1st.  We got 97teen blogs we follow, an Bloglines is the only one we efer used.

That means we gotta learn a new one, an we hate that!  The computer stuff is REALLY hard fer us, an half the time, we gotta get The Big Thing ta help us.  That means a lotta werds, a lotta sittin at the computer watchin him show us new stuff (gives us a headachy), and sometimes he isnt always very good at it hisself!

So, we're asking fer recommendations of which new RSS feeder we should use.  We know Blogger has one, but it seems we gotta do a lot of werk and enter all the blogs one atta time.  PFFT on that!  Are there any we can just export our bloglist to like "all at once"?  What is yer favrit blog reader?

Oh we hate it when stuff like that happens!! We use google reader - they do have an import/export feature, and the cool thing is if you add a blogger blog in like friendconnect it will update at google reader too - as long as you are logged in under the same login for your blogger and reader accounts. We like it because you can create folders and stuff too - and it is pretty easy to use. If you can export the list from Bloglines then you can import into reader. Here is what it said on the google reader page

If you are switching from another feed reader, you can import your existing subscriptions into Google Reader. To do this, you first have to export your subscriptions in a standard format called OPML. Learn more about exporting your subscriptions from another feed reader.

Google Reader, fer sure. It's easy to use, easy to click through to comment, and if a blog has a Follow widget, it's easy to add new blogs to it...

We can't help...but we are gonna be interested in what other Cats use! Mommy uses Google Reader, but that was by default.

I don't know if Bloglines closed already or not. If they haven't you need to see if you can export your blogs (see Amy on OPML). We take spurts, sometimes we use Google Reader and sometimes we use Feed Demon. Good luck, yep, it's a pain!!!

Well that's a big bummer! We use Google Reader.

Google reader--and I imported all my bloglines blogs into it so I didn't have to start over and it was really easy to do! You can always go searching for something different but google works and I don't think it's going anywhere soon...

All we know about feeds is that we usually get fed in the kitchen, hahameow! We use google reader just cuz it was there and we can't learn anything new it seems...

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

I use Google Reader. And I hope that never goes away because I think I have like eleventy-billion blogs listed there!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Well our mom is so hopeless that she put our links on our bloggie ONE at a time ~ and it made her crabby doin' it ~ 'cos it took ages!

We use the google reader on our dashboard; it's very easy to add blogs by "following" the blog or if that is not available on the blog, you can type in the blog address and add it that way=it updates constantly and goes back about 1-2 days, but you can also look up all the updates for individual blogs by clicking on their name along the side of the reader...Good luck!...xoxo...J, Calle, Halle, Sukki

I'm back and still following you. As per my latest blog post, I'm letting everyone that's in my following list know I still have them.
We use google reader here too. We've tried lots of it from back when we couldn't access anything google on the pda. Trust me, google reader's where you want to go.

Gosh- that stinks!! We use blogger (which is Google Reader) but we can't suggest a good one 'cause we haven't used any other ones! Blogger gives us grief sometimes - & gives our Mom a lot of grief sometimes ('cause even tho she uses a 'puter every day for her job - she has a hard time understanding HTML...)

We wish you the best of luck switching to a new blog-post thing-y!!
