After my total disappointment over the impending loss of Google Reader I began using NetVibes and Feedly.
First NetVibes and then Feedly as it was recommended. I actually pretty much discontinued NetVibes and went to Feedly because I couldn't (still can't) figure out how to tag posts in NetVibes. So I have been motoring along quite nicely in Feedly, finally customizing the layout and reorganizing blogs into categories etc and I think I can safely say - this is my new reader home.
I am sure there are options I am not yet using but I continue to explore. I will be back soon with some screen shots and reasons WHY I like Feedly. :)
