Have I mentioned that I am struggling to keep up with what everyone else is writing? I had been using Google Reader to manage my feeds and up until a couple of days ago I was very happy with it.
I have switched to Feedly and now I have a much nicer view of what I haven't yet read.
Feedly gives you options as to do you want to view your feeds. I actually prefer the digest option.
I'm enjoying mixing up my various folders a bit in the Cover or Digest views. I've missed following the gardening blogs and frankly trying to catch up had started to feel like a chore and chores are rarely enjoyable! But if I want to view only feeds from one particular folder I can simply click on a tab on the left hand side to get this view.
If I want to see all of the feeds I subscribe to I can go to my dashboard. There I can also select favorites.
To use Feedly you need to have a Google Reader account and use Firefox. I use both so all I had to do was click the button on the Feedly page and restart Firefox. I often have trouble finding my way around new software/sites but Feedly is very easy to navigate.
I do not recommend clicking on the Latest View - at least not if you are as behind as I am. 4, 636 items unread! It will be a while yet before I read everything :(
