It's Time for Change

And, no, this is not about the feckin' elections. I looged onto bloglines this morning and it reported over 300 new posts, many as recent as April of 2004. And it reported no activity for some people who did post. And it reported broken feeds for others.

So, I'm finally switching to google reader, a move that would fill me with more confidence if it didn't frequently report errors while I was trying to add all your blogs. If I used to comment on your site and abruptly stopped, it's not because I hate you. It's because you were lost in the switch. Either that, or I hate you. Leave me a comment and I'll visit your site to inform you of why I hate you.

And just to shut Crys up, here is a short vid of a forest and an ocean that has nothing to do with J-bunnies at all.




And another one with more ocean.

I'm on Google Reader. You should be able to find me unless you hate me and well, what can I do with so much hate but rise up and meet it.

I have been using google reader. It's good quit complaining. And upgrade from IE 3.1 one of these days.

Reader is awesome!

I'm so lame...I don't use any of those reader thingies...I just try to pop by every day. That may all end soon....I'll have to do the whole reader thingie then.

No J-bunnies? Are you feeling well today?

tiff said...

Tell me why you hate me, Grant.

Oh wait - you commented today. You LIKE Me! Yay!

Erm....how does one go about using a reader thingie? Like Stacy, I choose to ping-pong around the web. At least for now.

I've always wondered what you meant when you said, "Your feed is broken." I still don't get it really.

Hrmm. I do it the old fashioned way and use my blogroll. :| Lame, right?

Matt said...

Let me get this right, the appalling comments you leave are for the people you like? This is like a blogging version of the cycle of abuse. "Grant hurts me with his words, but it's only because he loves me. And because I won't listen."

Grant said...

eotr - yes, I found you. Hate is good. It keeps us warm in the winter.

sj - my job requires me to use IE version 6.x because the programmers don't want to update their programs.

turnbaby - it could use some improvements, but it's much better than bloglines or blogrolling.

pq - since you don't publish a site feed (the only one I know who doesn't), I can't add you to the reader. Make sure you keep commenting so I don't forget you.

tiff - google.com/reader/ is a tool you can use to add URLs that publish site feeds. It has a few settings you can use to either look at all the blogs you read, or just to show who has a recent update.

~deb - broken feed is either your blog's rss feed isn't working, or (more likely) bloglines was having problems and not picking it up. Hopefully google will do better.

matt - I leave appalling coments for the people that I like. If I don't like you, I leave appalling comments. Even I can't tell the difference anymore.
