Google Reader goes away tomorrow.
If you’ve used Google Reader to keep up with View from the Wing, this post is for you. And I’m going to ask you to take action now.
I don’t want to lose touch with you.
Google Reader has been my preferred way of following blogs, and the best way for me to manage all of the people writing about frequent flyer miles and travel, for quite some time. But the product is about to disappear.
I know that several thousand of hte 30,000+ people who keep up with this website use Google Reader, though of course every time pulling up the site in the past couple of weeks I’ve gotten a popup reminding me of its demise.
If you haven’t done anything about it already, there are several easy options.
- I’ve decided that I like Newsblur the best as a replacement for Google Reader. The free version takes a few days in the queue before they welcome you, and limit you to following 64 feeds. That’s actually plenty for most people. You can get immediate access and lift that cap for $24 per year, something I haven’t done yet but I think will probably be worth it.

- Actually bookmark this website and visit the old fashioned way 🙂
Truly, whatever way you choose to interact with this blog, it’s great to have you along for the ride.
