If there's anyone still sticking around blogspot, kudos to you! I haven't given up on it despite the death of Google Reader (oh, Reader...why...I thought we had something special), though maybe it's a futile effort reviving this little blog.
If you're looking for a good GR replacement, I recommend Feedly! It's similar in functionality to Reader AND it has a cute little mascot. Really that was the selling point for me :)
