On a completely different note, did you panic when you found out Google Reader was going away? I did, just a little bit. I follow a couple hundred blogs, especially food ones, and depended on Reader to keep everything organized. I had tried other readers in the past, and nothing worked as well – I need to be able to skim lots of posts in a hurry, read anything that catches my eye thoroughly with a single click, and not miss anything. Other readers were either too slow to show new posts, or I had to hunt around click too much to read everything. One didn’t work at all.
In the comments on another blog recently, someone mentioned that they were using Bloglovin’. I tried it and breathed a huge sigh of relief. I like it better than Reader, even. It’s easy to use, has a pretty interface, and it helps me keep up with all my subscriptions.
I’m not going to go into a lot of detail about how to use Bloglovin’ because it’s so easy. Just go over there and get started. Once you create an account, everything you want to do can be found by clicking on the heart on the toolbar up top. You can import all of your Reader subscriptions easily (but hurry, Reader will be gone on Monday!). I also added a Bloglovin’ button to make it easy to subscribe to Chez Cayenne – it’s on the right just above the Facebook gadget.
