* new blogroll

Posted on September 11th, 2010 by maitreya. Filed under Random.

Looks like bloglines is finally being put out of its misery, so I moved everything over to Google reader this morning.  I hadn’t realized that they have integrated auto-export to a blogroll (have to make the folder public before the option appears), so that was a nice surprise.  In previous experiments, I’ve never liked how Google reader sorts everything by date instead of stepping through all the posts from a single blog at a time, but I’ll get used to it.  I also don’t like their iPhone site as much, but there appear to be lots of apps that sync with Google, so maybe one will work for me.  Another annoying thing was I had to go through all of my clipped posts on bloglines to cull links I want to keep.  I suppose at least with Google, there’s less chance they’ll disappear on me at some future date, so there’s that. :/

ETA: I finally noticed the “show new items” option.  Thank goodness, since it was very annoying to scroll into the past every time.

    Assuming I’m understanding your ordering complain correctly: I have a habit of using my google reader in the following way: Individual blogs are tagged with one primary tag – that is their folder, the folders are expanded and I click on an individual blog title in the left column to get all the unread posts from that blog in the primary right column. I hope this makes sense and helps.
    Though I have found that really, when I manage to keep up, reading an entire folder at once is faster. That only works when I have less than 20 or so unread posts though.
