I’ve been lured over to the Dark Side — now that I’m here, where are my damned cookies!? ;)
I did it … I finally made the move over to Google Reader. I’d been resisting for some time; a long time fan of the Sage Firefox extension, I had really wanted to keep my feeds “inbrowser.” However, the amount that I had were straining Sage at the time, so I exported my feeds and imported into Thunderbird. But I still wasn’t happy … it just wasn’t the same if I wasn’t reading them in “Tha Fox.” I was browsing around a friend of mine’s site and saw his “Add to Google Reader” button. I started playing with it and spent about 2 hours importing and arranging all of my feeds to my liking and I must say I’m impressed. Google has really stepped it up since the last time I peeked (early EARLY in its beta stages).
I think I’ll keep it for now. And considering how much time I spend on my personalized Google page, the little Google Reader widget lets me know whenever I have new posts to read on my feeds and shows me which ones.
I’ll keep my Thunderbird as a backup and Google has a nice OPML export feature should I change my mind … nice!
Oh, and Jay — enjoy your honeymoon! I hear those New York Bed and Breakfast type places (which ever one you guys picked, lol) up there are nice. Have fun, you lucky smurf. ;P
