So I've been a bit absent from the blogging world due to my eye surgery this week. I noticed an immediate improvement but alas reading is still an area where I'm weaker. It is supposed to continue to improve through this week. I have not been in any pain after the first day (where I had a headache and general wooziness from the anesthesia) but I haven't really felt up to much reading. Thankfully I scheduled some posts in advance and I'm planning to start tackling commenting today and through the week. I promise-I will be back with a vengeance!
Google Reader Alternatives:
Last week, I lamented the loss of GR but this week I am feeling more optimistic. I tried Feedly, Bloglovin', and Netvibes (my feed is STILL waiting to be imported at The Old Reader; it's been over a week!). Netvibes was an early favorite but I have switched back to Feedly for the time being. Now that I have discovered I can arrange my groups by title, it more closely mimics GR and I find it pretty easy to click through and comment.
Somehow I have had a big surge in new GFC followers; I'm not really sure why as I haven't been doing any special promotion. I am very appreciative though and am planning a giveaway for when I reach 500 followers.
