Bloglines, I hardly knew ya.

I’ve been using bloglines for years.  But lately it’s been failing me.  I’ve got a friend whose significant other is battling a mystery illness and since she doesn’t blog, he keeps our circle of friends informed about her condition via his blog.  For some reason bloglines isn’t showing new posts on his blog, so the last time she ended up in the hospital, I was unawares.  I’ve had similar problems with netvibes, though not with the same blog.  I tried all the usual stuff, adding and deleting the site from my feeds, etc but nothing worked.

So I’m ditching bloglines for Google reader.  The migration itself is easy: export your subscriptions from bloglines and import them into Google Reader, clean up a few folders, and you’re good to go. 

Sorry Bloglines, I thought I knew you.
