Trouble with Bloglines not updating

DearREADERS,
Been having trouble with Bloglines as the reader for your favorite genealogy blogs? I’ve noticed a lag.

However, today on LifeHacker (that I pull into my Outlook 2007 to read as it is one of my favorite techie blogs) the following was posted by Gina Trapani:

“TechCrunch reports that web-based feedreader Bloglines has stopped pulling in updates for "thousands of blogs" with no word from its parent company, Ask.com, about what's going on. We made the switch from Bloglines to Google Reader two years ago. How about you?”

Fortunately I have many of the genealogy blogs also posted on my iGoogle page, with Google Reader as an option. If you need help setting up, see Lisa Louise Cooke’s Genealogy Gems podcast entries, in particular Episode 15 “I love to iGoogle and you can too!” That’s where Ol’ Myrt here learned some great Google tips and tricks. Thanks Lisa for being ahead of the curve.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
