Open letter to my 14 subscribers on Google Reader

By the time you find this post — if you end up finding it at all — Google Reader will probably be gone. Perhaps you’ve already transitioned to another RSS solution and taken along this somewhat quiet feed. Or perhaps you saw the link on Twitter.

There is much I could say about Google Reader shutting down. Most of it has already been said by others.

For now, I just wanted to thank you for subscribing. Our time together on this platform has been fleeting. I started writing here less than a year ago, during what turned out to be the lame duck session of the Google Reader era. Thanks for letting me watch that subscriber count inch up toward respectability.
