follow the muskrat with feedly!
Here’s the link: father muskrat blog.
If you hurry, you can go to feedly.com and with one click (assuming you are logged into your google account), you can move your google reader blog subscriptions over to feedly. There are other ways to skin this cat, but this way seems to be the easiest.
That said, I’m still pissed about the change, because change sucks.
Speaking of changes, I remembered today that I have had BlogHer ads in my sidebar for the past 5 or so years, and it really hardly pays anything, and I never saw them or thought about them, since I use a FireFox plugin that prevents my seeing sidebar (and a lot of other) ads on websites I read. So, I took them down. I put them up several years ago so that I could, if audited, tell the IRS that I blog to make money, and that’s why I was submitted trips to the annual BlogHer conference as a tax deduction. But on April 6, 2009, I started my own firm and used blogging as a large part of my marketing, which meant attending blogging conferences was, in fact, an important part of becoming better at my craft and its marketing, meaning such meetings were (and are) tax deductible. Thus, I ceased needing the sidebar ads.
Speaking of BlogHer, after attending the aforementioned annual conference in 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012, I decided to skip this year. It’s nothing against the conference necessarily, or Chicago (a city I love to visit)…I’m just not feeling it this year. A few of the folks I look forward to seeing each year won’t be there, so I decided to join their ranks. That said, I could change my mind a few days before it starts, as I’ve been known to do with other travel adventures!
