"Desperate Times Call For Desperate Measures"
If you are looking for a new RSS Reader here's a few you might want to take a look at:
NewsBlur.com: Right now they are not accepting free accounts. I tried to sign up this morning and there are 2100 people waiting ahead of me for a free account. For $24.00 a year you can get a premium account immediately. Free accounts have a cap of 64 sites. I may try this one as the demo looked like it would do what I want.
Feedly.com: This is pretty popular and it synched Google Reader feeds seamlessly before Google Reader was canned. I'm on Feedly but have to admit I'm looking for a replacement. It is the most popular of RSS Readers but it just doesn't suit my needs.
Pulse: I use Pulse on my iPad and I really like it. It's more visually oriented than most readers but for iPad use I like that.
NetVibes.com: I signed up for a free account on NetVibes this morning. It's easy to set up, you pick a topic of your own choice or one of their popular ones, and NetVibes starts creating a dashboard for you. After it created my Genealogy topic, it pulled in hundreds of news stories, blogs and videos for me. Don't worry, you can import specific blogs or websites. So far I am really liking NetVibes
IronReader: This RSS Reader is getting some good press. I haven't tried it so can't comment but you may want to check it out.
