I'm going to miss Google Reader. We have so many memories together. It's taught me so many things. But I guess nothing is forever.
As I was doing my final Google Reader business of exporting my feeds and making sure everything seamlessly transitions to Feedly, I went back through my starred items. I've been using Google Reader since 2008. It's funny to see how the topics of articles I've liked have changed and evolved as I have changed and evolved personally.
For nostalgia's sake, here are some of my favorite articles starred in Google Reader over the years:
