PostSubject: Google Reader to be discontinued, need help saving lost blogs   Thu Mar 14, 2013 9:47 pm

So a few years ago it was discovered that several deleted blogs could be recovered and read by following them in Google Reader. Well, now, for whatever reason, Google has decided to discontinue Reader on July 1st. This means that we risk these blogs being lost indefinitely.

As a result, I'm working on creating archives of as many of these blogs as possible. However, it's a daunting task. I'll need help. If you want to help, it'd be great if you could do so in one of two ways:

1. Recover these blogs. I was unable to follow everything before it was deleted. Chase has a very large list, but there are a few she's missing as well. Basically, if you have a blogger account that was following blogs that have now been deleted, you'll also have a Google Reader account that was following said blogs. Let me access those accounts or, if you're not comfortable with that (which would be incredibly understandable), copy them down somewhere and send them to me.

2. Work on updating the archives. You'll be given access to accounts that have recovered these blogs as well as the account I'm using to archive them, and you'll have specifications to go by when archiving. This will help me more since it means I'll have to do less of the actual work myself (which is a big task that I'm not sure I have the time to do).

Thank you for your time.

Do you have a list of blogs? I'll try whatever I can to help, but I have a lot of schoolwork too.

This might be something worth looking at:

I'll overlook your double-posting in this instance. The only reason I'm doing so is because should this thread not gain very much attention, it could be detrimental to the mythos as a whole.
