I am a big Google Reader fan. I was definitely one of the many readers that moaned an groaned when Google announced that they were shutting down the service. It has become a such cherished part of my daily routine! Like my morning cup of coffee, I need it to feel like a functioning human being.

To give credit where credit is due, let me know if you recognize the photographer! 

Because of my ancient computer (4+ years counts as ancient in computer years), I can't download apps or use services like feed.ly. I was entirely happy with my current reader and simply wanted a replacement. Hooray for The Old Reader! It is essentially the exact same thing as Google Reader. It's even slightly prettier. All the better to view my favorite blogs from!

Happy reading!


  1. I use Bloglovin' and I love it! I don't think you need a new computer for that site!

    1. You don't - but I tried it and was less than thrilled. It just didn't have the same "feel" as reading on google reader. A less than great excuse, but an important one all the same!
