UPDATE ON : The Reader–You Probably Knew This; I Didn’t…

Concerning the following which I posted earlier, I learned that for updates on all the blogs I follow to appear on my Reader (instead of many on e-mail),  I must transition from .com to .org for $99.  Just thought you’d like to know.


I recently dropped a number of sites I had been following because they hadn’t posted in a long time.  As I dropped well below 300 blogs followed, I discovered that not everyone on my followed list gets listed in my Reader when they post.  If that’s you I apologize. I checked everyone in my reader frequently, while entirely oblivious to others I thought I was actively following.

I wonder how many posts you can follow and they will all be covered via the Reader.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 83 now.

    Most of the blogs I follow I only get on my email notifications. Like yours never comes up in my reader and maybe a handful come up in my reader. If I didn’t add email notifications I would never see any posts! I don’t know why this is everyone should be in the reader but they aren’t. Then I will see their comment on someone elses post and i will go to their site and realize I’ve missed a month of their posts because I didn’t even get notifications. So I understand that frustration with that.

      Thank you for the response! My e-mail is so cluttered with fund-raising stuff I may need to do an e-mail cleaning!

        Oh it takes me forever to do my emails. Then I miss doctor emails because there is so much notification for the blogs. Then things go in the junk folder that shouldn’t be there. I’m not a fan of clutter yet my email is a clutter box!

        I was following 2000 but then I was getting 2000 in my email a day so I went through and only followed those who directly interact or like or I know are reading my blog regularly. That ended up only being about 100 people so I followed them and unfollowed the rest
