Google Reader is going away on July 1. Sigh. Worse, my Google Reader page already vanished. OK, I had too many blogs, and not enough of the blogs I really wanted to read, but it seemed harsh when it suddenly quit working on me.
I looked at several other platforms to read blogs, and I am the wrong demographic for them. I don’t want to share blogs I’m looking at on Facebook, and I don’t want to Tweet my comments to bloggers. So I found a site called, appropriately enough, The Old Reader, which I like. It allows you to scan the images on blogs, rather than have to open each blog in a separate window.
So I’m starting over again, finding new blogs and trying to remember old favorites. But first, I have that workbook to write and then. . .be still my beating heart, the extra poetry books I ordered arrived today! And the combination of the love of books and the loss of the poetry book seemed to spur the letter collage for today.
Wow, came in under 200 words!
