Thanks and Some Pics

I want to thank each and everyone one of you who took the time to leave a comment on my last post. It seems that “Google Reader” was the unanimous choice. I did switch over (after two attempts). Now, I don’t know if it is just me and there is something I haven’t discovered there yet, but I wish Google was more like Bloglines in the way the “marked unread” posts are maintained. Google makes me scroll through a number of posts to look up the one I wanted to “refer” back to, whereas Bloglines kept only the posts that where actually “checkmarked” to keep. Other than that I guess I can live with it.

I’ve just been having little spurts here and there of doing something “arty”. Soooooo, I thought I would post pics of a couple of pages I had painted way back and recently added some stenciling to.

The top and bottom pages I sprayed with inks. The middle page I used watered down acrylic white paint. These pages will have more layers added to them (eventually).

Blog Reader Help

I have a question for you. I have been using Bloglines for several years as my way of reading/following all of the blogs. Bloglines has announced that as of October 1st they will no longer be “in business”. I tried doing what they “suggested” as a way of keeping my blog links and came up zip.

What/how do you follow/read your blogs? I have gone through my bloglines list and bookmarked all the blogs, but I don’t want to spend all my time going to each blog to see if there is a new posting or not. I like being able to just go to only the ones with new posts (as I spend way too much time on the computer as it is).

Any and all help/advice is appreciated.

**Okay, after posting this I just realized I could update my blog list in the sidebar and follow that way, but I have nearly 200 blogs I follow and it would make my sidebar listing reeealy long. So I still am wondering if there is a better way!!
