Breezy Days: Things That Make Me Sad


March 14, 2013

Things That Make Me Sad

+ How candy looks cute on my table, but I don't want to/like to eat it
{Other than that, my new owl & candy jar make me quite happy}
+ Dying flower arrangements
+ People who are rude to me at work
 {Aka, you people attacking the sale section 5 minutes before closing time, while I'm trying to organize know who you are}
+ Lame exams/tests/quizzes/ busy work homework
+ Chipped nails
+ Candles that smell good up close, but when you burn them they suck at their job
+ When DSW packs you Size 6 flats in the Size 8 box you ordered, then having to trek to FedEx to return ship it, even though you were smart and ordered the correct size
+ Being sick
+ A dirty house
+ Google deleting stuff that I like

Let the Google blog explain that last one...
"We launched Google Reader in 2005 in an effort to make it easy for people to discover and keep tabs on their favorite websites. While the product has a loyal following, over the years usage has declined. So, on July 1, 2013, we will retire Google Reader. Users and developers interested in RSS alternatives can export their data, including their subscriptions, with Google Takeout over the course of the next four months."
{Found on Google's Official Blog}

 After some Twitter conversations & further researching, it is found that the Reading List on your Blogger Interface with your blog subscriptions will remain while your option to catch up on your favorite blogs through Google Reader will now disappear.
Therefore, at this point in time, your followers on GFC will not be affected by Google Reader far as we all can surmise. What most bloggers are saying is that Google has already done away with GFC for non-blogger based websites and that it is only a matter of time before they do away with the widget on blogger websites. So maybe now is the time to start switching over readership to: Bloglovin, Google +, Hello Cotton, an RSS feed, or Facebook.

So if you would still like your Breezy Days fix to last through the ages... 
Please follow via: Bloglovin, Email Updates, or the Breezy Days Facebook page.

I HAAAAAAAAAAAAATE that I have to switch things out of Google Reader. It was like a punch in the face when I got that notification.

But, I dunno, maybe it's just a sign that I should stop reading so many blogs.
