Now that GoogleReader is disappearing

My stats from the past 30 days…

From your 216 subscriptions, over the last 30 days you read 8,966 items, clicked 130 items, starred 21 items, and emailed 6 items.
Since 22 April 2010 you have read a total of 300,000+ items.

And that’s just the past 30 days, and I’ve cut down since the initial announcement.

Since I see a lot of people asking what GoogleReader is/was – it an RSS reader – a way to read from a multitude of information sources at your own time. It is (in my opinion) a far superior way of reading blogs, news, comics, and whatnot – simply for the fact that everything goes in one place. I don’t have to spend ages jumping from one website to another to check if they have updated.

I have also used it to save items for later. I don’t know why I haven’t just bookmarked them, but if I’d starred something in GoogleReader, and that website had later disappeared, I still would have the text from that post.

Now, I’m in the middle of transferring all the recipes I have starred to Pepperplate I don’t know why I haven’t done that earlier. (To speed it up, I’m currently bookmarking those recipes that don’t have as easy transfer, yet. I plan to import those later.)

My RSS reader of choice for the future… I’m trying out Feedly, with the Google Reader add-on.
