Let me preface this by saying that despite a 90-degree forecast, hell must be freezing over SOMEWHERE because I'm posting a "techie-kinda thingamajig" today. Even better? I'm doing so despite hovering perilously close to "moron status" in knowing anything about it. But I'm getting some options lined up due to upcoming changes in Blog-land. Been procrastinating. Funny thing is, I'm not even sure I NEED to make any changes. But I honestly haven't heard this much angst since the last time the world was "supposed" to end. July 1, 2013. That's when Google Reader will disappear, poof, gone foreverrrrrr. And here is where ignorance was bliss until I was outed...I don't even know IF this will effect me or not. Do I even USE Google Reader? WHERE would I even check that (See? Techie ignoramus). Besides editing photos, blogging, emailing, Facebooking, and a weeeeeeee bit of online shopping (that's all I'm gonna cop to cause the Better Half reads this occasionally) I'm computer illiterate. And I kinda like it that way. I'm just not interested in knowing much else. My face glazes over when someone tries to explain things to me that are tech-related. Ask the Better Half about our television remote control discussions. GLAZE, GLAZE, GLAZE...I just won't use THAT television, okay?
But maybe options are good should I actually find out July 1st that yes indeed, I HAD been using Google Reader all along. How would I know? I guess I will turn on the computer July 1st and have nothing to read while drinking my coffee? Who knows. So I now have a back up plan because who wants to drink coffee with nothing to read besides Facebook status updates? All one needs to do is show up at a wedding with the same dress as your future daughter-in-law to embrace the importance of a Plan B, just sayin'. I now travel with TWO dresses, and I shall now have TWO methods of reading all those blogs I follow:
I HATE to complain about "change". It makes me feel like those old geezers I always roll my eyes at who start sentences with "well, back in MY day". You know, that mythical time when the world was apparently perfect. When it comes to blogging I only like change when I WANT to make a change. In this case, I was perfectly happy in la-la-land. Since I might be pushed out of that kingdom, I'm making my vacay home at Bloglovin'. It was pretty easy to set up, looks crazy similar to what I'm use to on Google (kinda my winner-winner chicken dinner moment), and I transferred all my blogs that I follow in a nano-second so I won't lose youse guys on July 1st. And I hope you don't want to lose me either in the post-apocalyptic sans-Google Reader world. I want to be found, not lost.
Have YOU made any decisions on what to do should your Blog world soon disappear? Hopefully this is all just another "the sky is falling" false alarm. But if not, I don't want to be forgotten and gone with the wind on your blog readers. So please follow me via Bloglovin' if that is the answer, or make sure you have some sort of back up plan to import all your blogs. There is seriously is no harm in having two blog readers...OR two dresses.
Hope to see ya on the other side, may the force be with you.
P.S. Does anyone know if following a blog via "Google Friend Connect" is in the works to be gone with the wind too?
