There is about a week left before Google Reader leaves us. If you're going to keep following futuregirl.com or any other frequently updated sites using a feed reader, it's time to make a choice ... or a couple choices.
I use Google Reader. I have for years. 2 of my 3 smartphone screen panels are just for Google Reader widgets (everything else is packed on the one home screen). I was less than happy to hear that they have decided to close down Google Reader
on July 1st.
It's also a issue for me because I have 17,247 feed subscribers who read my blog using Google Reader. Am I going to lose all those readers? I don't want to lose you!
Any suggestions on what to use to read my feeds when Google Reader shuts down? Bonus points if you've actually used your recommendation and like it's android widget. ;)
The one I saw mentioned in articles a lot last week was Feedly
, but I'm not sold on it yet. It's pretty, though.
I am so excited about being able to offer the Starling Handbag in French and German. The translations were done by two amazing people, Ambre and Laura, who volunteered their skills. I've updated the Starling Handbag Ravelry page
and my free downloads page
to include the new versions.
This is actually part of a bigger project. I completely redesigned and recoded my free downloads page. The updated look and feel is accompanied by a completely new delivery engine that should eliminate the problems some people had trying to get my downloads.
I figured if I was going to release the writstlet pattern soon, I had to update that page to work for everyone or I would drown under the "I can't get the pdf" emails once it's out. :)
This is where the text should go.
