I’ve gone cold turkey for over month and still have withdrawal symptoms. My mistake probably is the continual thinking, “This would be so much easier in GReader.”
After reading a dozen articles on possible replacements and trying out them all, I was very disappointed. Even heroic new comers like Digg Reader fail to impress. I guess feedly is my replacement. Least worst is not comforting.
Before the announcement, I spent on average about 15 hours a week reading and following up on new posts. Reaching everything read felt like an accomplishment. Now, I maybe spend 5 using feedly and have spiraled out of control in the number unread content. It is time to cull my feeds because it is obvious I am not going to read RSS as much anymore.
Maybe feedly will improve into being more usable. After all, Google Reader did. I was on Bloglines. In fact, here is the post on RIP Bloglines way back in 2005.
