    Can we add ‘keyword’ feeds? Most of my subscriptions on my Google Reader are not websites. They are keyword alerts (like ‘Android’). Does Newsblur have the feature?

    I really like Google Reader — it’s a shame they are retiring it.

    Just tried to get on newsblur but the site is down.

    Anyone else having this issue?

    Alternative feed reader sites are taking a beating with the Google Reader news. I had a bear of a time getting on Feedly last night.

    Bloglines. Oldie, but a goodie. Save from being shut down a few years ago and is better than ever.

    Yea, this isn’t working very well. The site was barely functional to load and then when I set-up a new account it ‘logged an error’. I think I’ll just use Feedly. Being overwhelmed by traffic is no excuse in this day and age.

    How does this work with NewsBlur being consistently offline?

  • http://www.dekh.com/members/profile/13 Harsh Bawa

    I have used Newsblur quite often but on many occasions, I have seen that its really slow and sometimes the site is completely offline.

    Bloglines, feedly are other things I have used in order to make my life easier.

    On the whole, I am sure millions will be disappointed with Google reader being shut down as it was one of the best places you can go and get everything.

    I think the developer of Newsblur should hire some experienced staff and not be a one man army because thousands will sign up after reading this post ;)

    FeedBin https://feedbin.me/ looks promising.

    While Reader is near about gone, its user base is now groping for alternatives that can serve as the perfect replacement. While there are plenty of options worth exploring, Feedly, Taptu, Pulse, Flipboard and Google very own, Currents are the ones FATbit found closest substitutes to humble Reader.. as FABlog Post

    I just try to use Newsblur but site is down and also facing the problem to using it. I always like to use Google Reader and it such a best place to get every updates very easily. Unfortunately they are retiring it.

  • Staffo
