New RSS reader thing

So with the end of google reader coming closer, I thought I’d have a look at some of the other RSS readers out there. So for a while I settled on The Old Reader. While The Old Reader pretty much has everything I want in a RSS reader, I can sort and order my feeds, it uses the same keyboard short cuts as reader, I can star things, however it’s really slow. Compared to  google reader The Old Reader takes ages to load things, and by ages I mean like 4 seconds. But 4 seconds too long.

Two of my mates have started using feedly. I remember having a look at feedly back when I first heard about reader ending but there was something about it I didn’t like, which I can’t seem to remember what that was.  Anyway so I went back to have a look at feedly. First impresses very nice. It’s a lot more customizable, giving me about 4 different layouts and a bunch of different background colours, it also kept all the things I had starred in google reader and unlike The Old Reader, feedly lodas new pages really quickly.

I think I’m going to use feedly as my main RSS reader once reader dies. However I don’t think anything will ever compared to google reader, while playing around with feedly today I noticed that it didn’t load all my blog post.

It wouldn’t load anything after my drawing post. I’m not really sure why this is, at first I though maybe I needed to use the RSS url and not the normal wordpress url but that didn’t change anything. The same thing was happing for JB, it wouldn’t load beyond that one post. I though maybe it was a wordpress thing, so I looked at another wordpress blog. The same thing happend, it only loaded up to a number of post and said there was nothing beyond, however the amount of blogs it would load changed from blog to blog.

How strange.

I had a look to see how far The Old Reader would load my blog,

It managed to load older post, but at the same time it didn’t load all my post.

Google reader however managed to load the whole blog all the way back to the very first post I made here.

I guess it’s just more to do with the RSS reader and how much they can store. Once this post goes out I’ll been seeing if there are any changes, will feedly only store 10 post at a time for will it change to 11?

I really am sad at the end of google reader. I’ve been using it for such a long time, how will I internet without it?
