Bashing head against the screen as I type.

Oh. My. God.

Bloglines (the old-fashioned rss feed reader that I use) just got "updated" and by "updated" I mean SCREWED THE HELL UP!!

I am in the process of trying to transfer about, oh, 75 blogs or so from my old site to my new one but, in case we all forgot, I am in possession of the world's most ELDERLY COMPUTER EVER and this is not an easy task. (Yes, I would be happy to review a new computer. Call me. We'll chat.)

I beg of you; if I have EVER commented on your blog or if you comment here or if this is your first time (Hi! I'm not always this disjointed. Well, except for when I am...), please leave me a comment so that I can re-link you easily. Seriously, this SUCKS. Especially since the list ISN'T ALPHABETICAL! Of course not. It was probably designed by a MAN.

Rawr.

Also: New post at The Chicago Moms by yours truly...

I hope you are switching to Google Reader. It's pretty good, and it also has some cool features.

I like google reader.

can be sorted either alphabetically or by most recent posts.

(and WHY do complaines do these updates at the HOLIDAY season when people are already TOO BUSY & STRESSED out??)

Read me! Read me!

So sorry. Not a good thing at all.

Another vote for Google reader. Good luck.

Julie said...

Well, that sucks. Hey, I need your email because one that's on this page doesn't work.

LceeL said...

Hey! I resemble that remark.

Sorry you've had a rough day with the computer. The internets can be so great and yet... well you know. Hope tomorrow is better.

I used to use Bloglines, but switched to Google Reader when they first announced that Bloglines was closing down (and later another company said they would keep it running). Anyway, you can easily import ALL your subscriptions over, it only takes a minute and you don't have to do each one individually. You just export the list from Bloglines, then import the whole file into Google Reader, and you're away laughing! Give it a try, it's great, I promise!

Rebecca said...

I switched to google reader a while back because bloglines was saying they were going to shut down. Might be better off finding a new reader.

Anyway, not that I post much these days, I'm www.adventuresinmommyhood.blogspot.com

Oh. So frustrating. Hate when computer suckage takes up my valuable time I could be wasting elsewhere. Hope you get it sorted out!!

Tracey - Just Another Mommy Blog said...

Julie, that's weird.My email is mctrickyb at sbcglobal dot net. Let me know if you can't get through...

Melanie said...

I use google reader also!

Shari said...

Your post made me laugh. I keep getting links to update this or that, but I don't for the exact reason you mention. One update screws up everything! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

Stacia said...

Yep, I'm a Google reader-ite, too. Wishing that Santa brings you a new computer!

Pregnantly Plump said...

That's frustrating. My old reader shut down and I had to remember and relink. It was frustrating. Good luck!

Your what did what? Sorry I'm not good at all this technical talk, but I do use Google Reader and I see lots of others do too, so I must be doing something right.
