Google’s RSS reader

Apparently Google have released a web-based aggregator, google.com/reader. I like gmail, so I thought I’d try this out, even if it seems to lack a mobile interface.

So I uploaded my blogroll in OPML from Bloglines, and waited… and waited… and waited some more. After 15 minutes it still said “Your subscriptions are being imported…” so I decided to let Google Reader cool down a bit and try again later, perhaps in a year or two.

Hey Gustaf, nice find on Reader. Please can you remind me whhere to find OPML inside Bloglines? I must have my dusty glasses on today...

Martin: click the "Edit" link above the list of blogs. There will be two links "Import/Export subscriptions" at the bottom of the list.

Ah, of course, thanks Gustaf. I *knew* it was somewhere obvious. Have you had any more luck getting you subs into the Google Reader?

Apparently it loaded around 20%, but I can't be bothered to continue. I'm sticking to Bloglines.
