Moving to Google

27. January 2009

I used to use different web applications to do different things for me, but I find myself wishing more and more that I could jsut keep everything in one place and deal with it from there.

I used to use Yahoo back when it was still a small, fledgling place for people to gather (hands up if you remember internet in the early to mid-90s!), but since then, I’ve diversified. It happened gradually, without me really paying much attention to it at all. But now it’s time to declutter my online life.

Enter Google. 

I didn’t set out to find another catch-all. I’d been disappointed before, lost in the endless customisations and ‘time-saving’ (hah!) applications, endless to-do lists, reminders and whistles and bells.

But I’ve given in. So now I’m moving virtual house and there will be a bit of dust.

Oh, the main reason I’m doing this? Turns out Bloglines has been losing my favourite feeds. And here I was wondering why all my friends had gone on blogging hiatus!

So sorry if I’ve seemed out of touch with my non-commenting self. Blame it on the web. *Always* blame it on the web.

    The only problem I find with Google Reader is that I’ve subscribed to so many blogs, I often don’t have time to read them all, let alone leave comments as well.

    But I’m not aware that Reader has not told me about any updates.

    Bloglines is having a blip because they are moving to a completely new system (http://beta.bloglines.com) – I have been trying it out, and actually prefer it to Google Reader.

    Great blog btw.

    Thanks for the heads-up, Jonathan.
    I’m curious. What about the new Blogger do you like better?
