Goodbye Google Reader: You Made Blogging and Making Money Online SO Much Easier — 7 Comments

  1. You commented on my blog! Instead of writing on Facebook or Tweeting. You ole buzzard.

  2. Wow, I don’t understand this. What are you talking about? I know what an RSS feed is because that’s what scrapers in South Asia use to steal my content, but I’ve never subscribed to a feed and I don’t know what Google Reader is (heard of it) and I don’t know what the new thing is that you’re talking about. What do you use now? And… I can’t believe that you make money on Examiner. Something secret in the secret sauce… I never made money on Examiner.

    Cheers,
    Tina

  3. Yes, Tina it’s because you didn’t know about RSS that it will go away forever and ever and you will NEVER know what you were missing. Examiner earnings are getting less and less. They started out overpaying to get a few thousand writers and they keep cutting pay. Latest gambit is not to pay for traffic outside the U.S. They won’t be around much longer, I give them 18 months.

  4. I’ve gone over to Feedly (feedly.com). They’re patched Google Reader via a Google API and have set up their own feed server (called Normandy). All you have to do is go to feedly.com, download the extension for Firefox or Chrome and then log into Feedly with the Google account credentials you use for Google Reader. Your Reader feeds will now show in your Feedly home page and you’re done. When Reader goes away in July, your feeds will already be imported into Feedly’s “Normandy” feed server.

    As long as you’re logged in, you’ll see a semi-transparent glyph at the bottom right of each page you visit that has a feed. Clicking on the glyph will allow you to add the feed to your Feedly Account.

    Feedly is still a work in progress of course but there’s no waiting since your Reader feeds are currently “reflected” in Feedly rather than imported. During the period between now and July the actual import will take place. And the feed layout is very customizable. Anyway, I’ve switched over and it worked fine once I got the layout the way I wanted.

  5. Somebody essentially help to make severely posts
    I might state. That is the very first time I frequented
    your website page and so far? I surprised with the research you made to
    create this actual submit incredible. Excellent
    activity!
