You probably heard that Google is going to shut down Google Reader (GR) on July 1st, 2013.
With GR going away soon, I have been working over the past several days to detach it from OraNA.
Blogs that no longer exist have been deleted from the aggregator.
Blogs that still exist but have had no new posts since January 2012 are no longer aggregated by OraNA.
I was surprised at the number of blogs that fell into the two categories above.
The number of aggregated blogs fell from 508 to 323 (plus the blogs.oracle.com feed).
Here is a live list of all the blogs that OraNA aggregates.
I guess the enthusiasm for long form blogging has fizzled out over the years. Lazy bloggers (including yours truly) find it much easier and quicker to “micro” blog using Twitter, Facebook or Google+.
On a personal note, I have moved my daily dose intake of news from GR to Feedly.
