From the Bloglines / Ask.com team to my in-box this evening:
“As you may have heard, Ask.com (http://ask.com/) has entered into an agreement with MerchantCircle (http://www.merchantcircle.com/) who has agreed to keep Bloglines up and running. Stay tuned over the coming months as MerchantCircle works to improve the Bloglines service by creating a richer and more local user experience.”
I love Bloglines! I was pretty upset when they issued instructions to migrate my feeds to another reader. I’m not a huge fan of Google Reader, but since I do have a Google Mail account, I moved my feeds there. Now I find I needn’t have worried. The execution of Bloglines is stayed!
