Well, if you use Google Reader I guess you have figured out by now that "they" made some changes. I really just started using Reader this past summer. I used to just use my own list on my sidebar and click over to each blog. When I'm sitting at the computer it's not a big deal -- our internet service is fast and it's as quick as scrolling down in reader (and I am much more inclined to comment -- always a good thing). But when I'm on my phone, it's not so fast -- many more steps involved, now that my blog is set for mobile use and so are many others.
I really used Reader, however, because I like the "share" button and when you wanted to save something, it was oh-so-easy to do. I curse Google for deleting the "share" button. Like the grocery store manager who says he is being more efficient by moving things around, I know it's because they think I will buy more trying to find my way around the store again. I absolutely never pick up anything else, just to spite them. Google has some incentive, I'm certain, but I'm not buying whatever it is.
I (hopefully) moved all my favorites back to my sidebar and now I'll read blogs the way I did before. And I started a new blog to save my favorite stuff. It's just as easy as some of the other methods and ya know what they say -- "there's more than one way to skin a cat." Poo on you Google.
