Reunited (With Blogs) And It Feels So Gooood : whoorl. About how it used to be, and getting that back with the Google Reader Next Button for your browser, I’ll have to do this. Somehow I still miss you-know-what-Lines, my Google Reader seems impenetrable.

    Oh my! the next button is amazing! It’s been so long since I have even seen what some of the blogs I read look like. LOVE it! Thanks for sharing!
    (ps-i had to add the bookmark by to chrome to add the next button)

    There’s a huge divide in the science community about vim. Either you love it or hate it. I personally can’t stand it. Emacs is another good, simple solution for text editors and I personally feel that it’s way more intuitive than vim. http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/

    I have been using the next button since I read about it on Whoorl. I adore it. I want to give it a giant hug.
    I browse blogs much slower…but I still love it :)

    hi, i rather like your site. any tips on how easy/difficult this was to set up in WordPress?

    I love vi/Vim but there is a real learning curve there. I hope you’ll stick with it a while before you make up your mind.
    Vim helps because it gives you a nice front end, but keep working on the vi commands, like “s” for substitute and “y” for yank.

    I love the Next button. There’s also a Subscribe you can add, if you didn’t already know that. I didn’t use google reader (or any reader at all) until I learned about Next because I would have felt too guilty not actually visiting the websites I loved so much.

    Susan – WordPress can be both easy and maddening. I’ll point you towards these articles over at Design*Sponge: getting a website in a weekend, and advanced functionalities in WordPress.

    My hosting company has a one-click install of WordPress, and I believe most all hosting companies have that these days. Good luck!
