Oh bother (not my exact terminology if I’m honest), what a pain. I really liked Bloglines and it had come to be something that I used nearly every day and had done so for years.
Luckily, it is easy enough to export a list of all my feeds and move across to Google reader. It’ll take me a while to come full up to speed with all Google reader’s features and customizations. I can’t say that I could expect Bloglines to survive, given it was free, but it sure was a great app.
