Bye Bye Google Reader Hello Rss2Email

Google is shutting down Google Reader. As of this writing I have 406 subscriptions. Since March 26, 2006 I have read a total of 61,413 items. However I have thousands of un-read articles.

I was doing it wrong. I should not have been subscribing to popular feeds that would have crossed my media stream from Twitter or Google Plus. I should have been subscribing to local and unique content instead.

My solution to information overload and the end of Google Reader is Rss2Email. I've added a dozen or so feeds that will be checked for changes twice an hour. I will get an email when changes occur. This should be manageable and convenient.
