Quick Hello to say Goodbye to Google Reader

Well hello Blog World!
It's been awhile, hasn't it? I will keep this short and sweet: I had originally planned to post after Cabo but I only had 2 nights (and work) inbetween the trips and my relatives came into town for one of them and I needed the other to pack. And I wanted to also Blog from Italy but it just wasn't feasible with our itinerary. Basically, life has been busy and good- and I shouldn't be complaining. But I hate this detached feeling from something I really love to do.
With that said, I had pictures and (what I see as) fun posts lined up for next week - call it my reentry into Blogging. But then today, I was reminded that Google Reader is closing come July 1st (Monday!). So, instead of waiting to post next week- I'm going to do the obligatory reminder that apparently "BlogLovin'" is the place to go to follow now. I have a link on my left sidebar that will take you there.

I am personally going to try and export my Google Reader into another platform, which I've heard is doable. But I don't know enough information on that yet to give details- if you do, let me know!
I hate that it's going away and I hate that I have to post this dumb post about it- but I least want to know I tried! Especially because it will serve as a reminder to me on Sunday to ensure that I'm still following all the blogs I love reading.
Happy Friday and I will see you next week :)

Sorry for this lamesauce post but in the words of Paula Deen: Whomever has never posted something they regret can throw the first stone!
Or just throw me some money instead, I'm going to be pretty poor for the next couple weeks as I recover from Italy and Mexico.

Your reading list on your dashboard will still be there. so all is okay at my lair.

I don't think the reader where I view recent posts at is identical to the Google Reader. I think Pat is right that the dashboard reading list will still be there. Your blogspot link should stay the same on the front of my blog too (I often "view blog" and use that anyway). Maybe I'll find out this coming week. I hope you continue to do your posts at

I'm not surprised that you wouldn't have time to do blog posts between everything you had going on what with the wedding in Cabo San Lucas and visiting relatives in Italy and squeezing some work in there too! Heck, I didn't even go anywhere and I still haven't managed a post for June (oops). Looks like I will have skipped a month - and I don't think your post was lamesauce at all. I'm happy to read you're safe and sound (and probably both happy and tired).

I'm looking forward to your upcoming fun posts and photos. P.S.: I love your makeup in the photo in this post.
