Google Reader retirement a shock in my digital world

I've never actually felt disappointed by an online product, service or app being discontinued before. This is definitely a first for me - even though I usually try limit the time I spend online in favor of physical activity, gardening or art-making, I love using Google Reader. I've been using it to read updates from green blogs, see inspiring new art by fellow artists and keep myself updated and motivated by reading posts from blogs such as Zenhabits. Google Reader retiring in July 2013? NOT what I wanted to read or hear!

So... Finding an alternative. Thus far, after minimal research, the main contenders are: Feedly (however, they are currently using Google Reader as base for their RSS!), Flipboard and Netvibes. What RSS reader are you using?

Inspiration: Paarl Mountain

During the weekend I spent time in Paarl Mountain nature reserve with hubby Pierre Bezuidenhout and during our walk took some photographs of the breath-taking scenes and interesting plant life surrounding us. Expect to see glimpses of these in my new artworks, I feel very inspired by our outing!
