I find Reader to be Google's most useful service, and I have all my different devices/readers syncing with the service. This definitely stinks!

Joanna,I've been reading your blog since 2007 and it's awayls been my favorite. I've introduced it to so many of my friends/family/coworkers. In fact, we talk about your posts everyday at work! The thing I've awayls admired about A Cup Of Jo is your genuine tone. These sponsored posts just don't seem genuine yet they seem to come more and more frequently. Everyone at work today was talking about how disappointing these posts, pop-up advertisements, etc are. If it takes these sorts of ads to keep your blog running, then please by all means keep them. But it's coming across as a bit sell-outish to us, even if that's not totally fair for us to feel that way. To me, there is a big difference in sponsoring a company like Pinhole Press through your posts, which is something you clearly stand behind (it comes across in the way you write about it!) and a company like Nokia, which we all know you don't use as your daily phone. This comment isn't supposed to be super harsh but I just want to give you my opinion. We love your blog and it is definitely your decision to make - just wanted to give my two cents as a dedicated reader.XO

I\'ve read your blog most days for a few years now but don\'t comment ulasuly. I enjoy your lifestyle posts and don\'t ulasuly care about the advertising side of things.But, just to let you know, I\'m thinking of buying a Nokia Lumia because of your sponsored post and I hadn\'t heard of it previously. I\'m not a fan of Apple and wanted to see what the competition was like, especially since I\'d like to keep supporting Nokia as I\'ve been buying their phones for years.So thank you from Australia :) Apologies for the ramble, but just wanted to let you know sponsored posts can be beneficial.Nothing wrong with making things a bit interesting eh? ;)

They killed those products because they were not relevant to the market anymore. Just face it. They were junks.

This is messed up. Reader is my home page and my source to daily news!

If they kept reader as a pay service I'd happily pay. Surely it's worth them trialling that as a business model?
