I’ve been a bit in denial about a technology announcement that was made a month or two ago. Google Reader, the software I use to manage my very large RSS reading list (I subscribe to about 150 different food blogs) is being taken off line on July 1st of this year.
This is mildly devastating to me because I’ve gotten so used to reading from that service. But, I’m sure I’ll be able to find a new RSS reader service that gets the job done.
This announcement though prompted me to rethink the service I use to manage the Macheesmo RSS and Email lists. Many thousands of people get the posts I write everyday either through RSS or email thanks to a free service offered by Google. Last year Google basically stopped supporting this service and word on the street is that they might take it off line soon.
So, I’m going to be a bit proactive about this.
At some point in the next month or two I’m going to move my email and RSS subscriptions to a different service. I anticipate this being very painful. I think email subscribers might have to re-verify their subscription.
If anyone runs a blog and uses a service other than Feedburner for RSS and email, I’m all ears! Also, if anyone knows of a good RSS Reader, I’d love to hear it. Leave a comment pretty please!
Income Tax Cupcakes - It’s tax season. In fact, it’s almost too late if you haven’t done your taxes already! These cupcakes are based off of a cocktail which is already a good place to start when the IRS comes a knockin’. (@ Cupcake Project)
Corn Balls – My blog buddy Dan is doing an entire series of recipes based off of Arrested Development episodes this week. It’s hilarious. This recipe actually looks good and the AD clips are awesome. (@ Food in my Beard)
