Moving back to Google Reader

I was having a bad time with Google Reader and moved to Good Noows as I mentioned previously. Good Noows is really good except for it being exceptionally slow. I tried to bear it like a husband with a mentally ill wife, but I have my limits.

So from now on I’m moving to Google Reader. Too bad Good Noows was not quite happy with the idea of a divorce. It doesn’t allow exporting feeds, so had to manually add many feeds to Reader.

But being the self-centred boy I am, I didn’t like to go to Google Reader’s feet and apologize. Instead I made Google Reader a different person by applying the Helvetica Reader theme, renamed all folders as I had them in Good Noows and hid the Unread Posts counts which were giving me headache.

So that’s it. I’m now trying to come to good terms with my previous wife.

Good Noows is Goood!

I confess I’ve never been in good terms with Google Reader. The thing, you know, is that it isn’t made for me. Perhaps it suits for you saner souls.

Then I come across Good Noows.

It does the pretty same thing as Google Reader, but in a more clean and… and a better way. The site is real eye candy. Can be customized in several cool layouts. You don’t need to sign up, too! You can sign in with your twitter, facebook, google, yahoo or linkedin account. And the site is kinda minimal, which suits for noobs like me. A bit slow than GReader, but who cares!

Sooo, the news is Good Noows is for you if you’re obsessed with Google Reader like me.
