Feed Reader

Help! I am a loyal Bloglines user to read blogs. I just found out that they are shutting down in a few weeks. What do you guys use to read blogs? Are there other options out there besides Google Reader? I liked being able to see pictures and read the whole blog post without having to go to the blog site while using Bloglines and I can’t figure out how to do that with Google.

    I find that the vast majority of bloggers make their entire posts available in readers, but it is annoying when they don’t. I like Google Reader because of the folders options – I can follow a lot of people and categorize blogs into must read daily, weekly, when I get a chance, etc. It’s very helpful to a really full blog roster.

    Wow, I came to answer and three comments already said the same thing!

    I’ve found the only blogs I can’t read in full in Google Reader are ones that are from wordpress and the owners have a setting to only show a summary. It’s in the “Read Settings” section under “For each article in a feed show: Full Text or Summary”
    I can read yours in full, including pictures.

    I use Google Reader and whether you see the whole post is dependent on the blog owner, not on Google Reader. So for many blogs I can read the whole thing in GR, and for a few people who have their blogs set differently I can’t.

    there are only a few blogs that don’t show me their pictures or all the text in the Google Reader, and I can’t figure out how to change that either…I think that is from the blogger’s side, not mine
