I Am So Mad!

Edited to add a big thank you to Texgirl and Betsy! By switching over to Feedly I was able to retrieve the blogs I had in google reader!! Thank you ladies so much as there was no way I could have gotten them back on my own. Not sure if its just a glitch in google reader but I keep getting a message "no longer available" when I try to go to google reader. I even tried just going to my google page to try to pull up reader and got the same message. Everyone might want to switch to a different reader soon. Google reader took away the blogs I was following in google reader!! I knew they were going to as I had heard the rumor but thought they would give us a warning. I heard nothing from them at all and yesterday my reading list disappeared! I have some of the blogs on a reading list I made on a blog page but it was so easy to add new ones to my reading list instead of manually adding them to my blog page. I have lost so many wonderful blogs and I am so mad!!! So if you haven't already lost your google blog reading list go RIGHT NOW and add them to your bookmarks or something before they are gone forever.

Peggy, It might have just been a glitch --since they are not supposed to make those changes until July I think...

I already switched to Feedly--which I like ALOT. Hope your list comes back...You don't need that problem--with as much else as you have going on in your life now...

God Bless.
Hugs,
Betsy

i agree with betsy - thinking it is just a glitch. i, too, switched to feedly the day google announced they were killing reader. right now feedly and reader are sync'd, but it will run on its own when they kill reader.

I don't use Google Reader though. I am in the process of switching over to feedly though.

I just checked mine at https://www.google.com/reader/view/#overview-page and they're still there. Noticed, though, at the main Google Chrome page, that "reader" isn't an option in the drop-down menu anymore. You have to go to google.com/reader to have it drop-down.

They're jumping the gun a bit, I'm thinking. :(

Glad you got Feedly and got your blogs back... That's great news. I enjoy Feedly--probably more than the Reader.
Hugs,
