If you use Google Reader or publish a blog or website RSS feed, then your worlkd have been turned upside down by Google's announcement it is closing Google Reader and by the weakening of RSS support on services like Blogger (and in browsere interfaces, and its outright elimination from services like Twitter and Google+).
