I has been some months now since Google has announced the end of Google Reader. I have gone through many of the stages of grief (getting stuck at “Anger” for a while) and am now entering acceptance.
Personally, I have no problem with Feedly or one of the other readers. But there is another aspect of Google Reader that seems harder to replace. On my blog, I have two sidebar entries: a “From the OR blogs”, giving recent posts from the OR Blogroll, and a listing of the OR Blogroll itself. I think both are pretty useful since they given automatic visibility to new (and existing!) blogs in OR. I don’t think they get a ton of use, but they are nice to have.
Google Reader provided scripts for both the recent posts and the blogroll. I need a replacement that
- Allows easy addition/deletion of blogs
- Show recent posts from all the blogs
- Can also act as my personal reader
The last requirement precludes most of the wordpress scripts (I use wordpress on a local machine to handle this blog). I do not want to keep, say, a feedly list of blogs along with a separate “ORBlogRoll” within wordpress.
Anyone found a Google Reader replacement that can do this?
