Easy Like Sunday.

I am just laying here taking it easy.

Oh, what's that!

Grasshoppers!

Nah! You're all right Mr Grasshopper, it's Sunday and I'm taking it easy. Maybe you could come back tomorrow?

OLD READER.
Well I tried but have given up with Old Reader. I found that a lot of posts were taking 8-12 hours to show up and suspected a lot were being missed as I was only getting 25-30 a day which is well down on what I was getting from Google Reader. Yesterday I tried Feedly and marked everything as read when I went to bed. This morning I had 49 posts updated which confirms I have been missing a lot of them. I had a clear out of inactive blogs while I was about it and have got my reading list down to 199. If I normally comment but haven't been lately, would you leave your url in a comment so I can check you are in my reader. Thanks.

The grasshoppers are just starting to plump up where we are! Nom!

Brian said...

That is one lucky grasshopper handsome Flynn. Enjoy your Easy pal!

ANGEL ABBY said...

Flynn can you come over and help Momma get rid of her hopper problem?

I read somewhere that the Old Reader was simply overwhelmed by GReaders and their servers just wasn't up to the task. Feedly has been better. I like it much more than Bloglovin, although I'm sure BL love their feeds.

Still hate the GR left us all out in the lurch.

Everyone deserves a day off even our pets.
Enjoy, relax Monday is on its way.

That grasshopper doesn't stand a chance with you there!

Once we tinkered with Feedly settings (a lot), we have been fairly happy with it. Somewhere in the switchover between Google Reader and Feedly, we lost a bunch of blogs -- probably because we were following new ones in GR instead of Feedly, or vice versa -- and we're still discovering blogs we thought we were following that we lost touch with. You aren't alone in thinking this is a bit of a mess!

Sparkle said...

Those grasshoppers should thank their lucky stars! They would be toast around here - we NEVER take it easy when there is a grasshopper to catch!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

We've had a ton of grasshoppers here too. Fortunately we are not so good of hunters as you all are! I hope you have ours but you have been around so we think you do!

Alice Marie said...

Mmmmmmmm, I LOVES grasshoppsters! They're crunchy.

Prancer Pie said...

Do you like to eat them or just gnaw them til they're deaded and leave them for Mum?

Barb and the Gs said...

WOW! Down to 199? I'd be overwhelmed! You should take it EASY!!! haha!

Have a lovely day!

speedyrabbit said...

And Mummy thought she had a lot Flynn,now you be sure to take it real easy today,xx Speedy

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

199??? OMC! The Human thinks she's hot stuff if she gets to reading 40 or so a day. Wow--199. My Human is slackin'!

The Paw Relations said...

Grasshoppers can be quite crunchy.

The woman hasn't sorted out a reader to use yet, she mainly comments on links on the catblogosphere and any other blogs that comment on ours.

Marg said...

Those grasshoppers are fun to chase.
You are looking good Flynn.

We are http://www.margsanimals.blogspot.com.
Hope all of you have a great day. Take care.

The Island Cats said...

Mr. Grasshopper is lucky it's Sunday. Maybe you'll find him tomorrow and then...look out, Mr. Grasshopper!

The mom gave up on Old Reader too for the same reasons as you. She's been using Feedly or another new one she found...AOL Reader.

Cherry City Kitties said...

We're going to have rains today, so we think the grasshoppers here will have to be safe!

Mom hasn't been posting often, but we'd like to think you'd visit us when you can!

Laila and Minchie said...

Does that grasshopper realize how lucky he is! You bought yourself another day dude!

Glad you switched to Feedly. We love it!

Madi and Mom said...

Hey Flynn!
You are good at 'easy'.
I think you have us but here is our URL just in case

MAdi your bfff

Jenna and Sissy said...

The human said she spotted some green grasshoppers on her coleus. We wish she'd bring one inside for us! That would be so much fun :)

Caren Gittleman said...

you should sign up for BlogLovin' too....many of the bloggers are there!

Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz said...

Talk about a Blog Hop! You've got grasshoppers! Interactive cat toys! Teri is still bumbling around with BlogLovin' but as weird as it sounds, she still sees blogs come up on her Google Reading List too. Maybe that isn't the same thing as Google Reader but new posts show up on her Blogger Dashboard. Still, we haven't been able to get her to make time to visit much, but are trying to visit those of our friends who are leaving us comments...like you! Teri needs to clear out her blogroll too...it's on that never ending list of To-Do's she says!

Gracie=^o.o^= said...

Looks like you are having a great easy SUNday. You sure showed the grasshopper huh?

Daisy said...

We've been using Feedly, too, but it seems kind of buggy.

A few Good Cats said...

We have been using Feedly for several weeks now. Painless conversion from Google Reader.

A nice Sunday can make even a mighty hunter lose the will...

The Cat From Hell said...

Readers!!! Wes has subscribed by email to most of our favorite blogs. And wes uses Feedly.
Flynn, yous looks great!!
Kisses

You were most gracious to the grasshopper dear Flynn. xox

Swami Zoe said...

That's some lovely grass to lie in! Me-Ommmmmm

Derby, Ducky said...

Even with a reader we don't get to everything. Mum says she is too bizzy to help us.

meowmeowmans said...

Flynn, those grasshoppers sure are lucky this was your day to take it easy! :)

We have been using Feedly, and it is working so far...

Cathy Keisha said...

Thanks for dropping by with well wishes on my Blogoversary. We use Bloglovin and think we're missing a lot of blogs also. Also we seem to get are the dog blogs. I'd rather use use the CB linkies list. Hey Flynn, think the grasshopper will wait? I hope so.

Mollie said...

Yeah, that Grasshopper will keep till Monday..day of rest today xx00xx

Mollie and Alfie

Bellen said...

No hunting today, eh, Flynn? Even grasshoppers need to take it easy once in a while.

Your grass seems good! I love grass!

Thanks for letting me know about my site not going through the old reader. I'll have to check if I can do something on my side.

Thank you, too, for your birthday wishes for Milou!
