I've always used Bloglines as an online RSS-feed aggregator. I like using an online aggregator as it lets me read feeds from anywhere with an Internet connection. Unfortunately, Bloglines closed on 1st November 2010. I searched for some time to find an online aggregator or even just some appropriate code which I could install on this server, before finally settling on Google Reader. Unfortunately, Google Reader was retired on 1st July 2013. I've since settled on The Old Reader and have paid for a subscription in the hope that might keep them afloat a bit longer!
Bloglines let you keep posts which are interesting, and I had stored up 31 posts of interest. I could see no easy way to import these to Google, and so am posting these here. It is anticipated that links will be removed as they become obselete or no longer of value.
