    Than you!

    1. Hi Cindy,

      You're very welcome! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  2. How flattering to be in this list. Thanks!

    I also appreciate the discussions about alternatives to the Google Reader. Great job!

    1. Hi Wendy,

      You're so welcome! I'm glad you found the Google Reader links useful.

      Thanks so much for stopping by!

  3. ..and some fabulous finds at that!

    1. Hi Karen,

      Why thank you! I'm so glad you like the list, and thanks so much for stopping by!

  4. Thanks so much Jana for the mention and for the highlight of my new blog! I really appreciate it and like Wendy feel flattered to be on this great list! I want to add a link for a petition to try and change google's mind: "". It's difficult to imagine that we can go up against google, but it think it's worth a try!

    1. Hi Smadar,

      You're so very welcome! And thanks for the link to the petition.

      Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend!

  5. Jana, I saw that announcement about Google reader earlier this week, and am on the fence about it. I prefer to use Blogspot's own reader (with the Google Friend Connect), but don't know how--or if--this will somehow go away with Google reader. I do have a number of subscriptions, though, that were only offered through the Google reader option, so I'll have to go back, glean that info and find another way to subscribe to those blogs.

    Thanks so much for gathering all those helpful posts on the subject. This is going to be a move that will impact so many bloggers!

    1. Hi Jacqi,

      Hmm, I've never tried Blogspot's reader. Since all the hub-bub about Google Reader's demise, I've gone with Feedly. So far so good. Although I may give others a try as well.

      Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great weekend!

  6. Thanks so much for the mention, Jana - I really appreciate it!

    1. Hi Debi,

      You're so very welcome! Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

  7. Great post and wonderful finds as always!
