I used to use Google Reader. I had hundreds of feeds, many of which I didn't follow very carefully. I ended up stopping using it, because I'm just bad at keeping track of lists of things. My bookmarks are a horrible mess, and have only been worse in the past. A lot of people are really unhappy about it getting shut down, and I'm not surprise. It was pretty awesome. Enough people, in fact, that there's a petition, with over 100,000 signatures, to keep it running.
I hope it goes through. Checking tons of websites every day gets to be kind of a pain in the ass. All this attention has reminded me that Google Reader exists, and if it's still going to be around in a few months, I want to start using it again.
So, yeah. Central message: I have awful timing.
