Saying Goodbye

Wow, that sounded a bit more dramatic than I meant it to be... But today is a sad day in the CarleeMcDot.Com world.

I'm not sure how many of you have my app (or how many of you even knew I had an app), but today I was notified that it would be going away... <insert huffing and puffing faced emoji here>

Sure, I could always pay to have the Pro account and keep my app up and running, but seeing as I am not making any income from my blog it would be pretty silly and irresponsible to throw money at it (especially when that money could be used for things like race registrations or running shoes).

It was definitely fun while it lasted (and it was pretty cool to be able to say that I had my own app), but as with most things, it must come to an end. When I "created" it, it was to make a convenient way for readers to stay current on my posts. There were a few kinks in the system, which can be expected (especially for a free services), but overall I was very pleased with the final result.

What it looks like in the iTunes app store

With that being said, as of July 9th it will be no more... Thanks to everyone who downloaded it, but I guess you'll have to go old school and save CarleeMcDot.Com in your web browser favorites again!

How do you stay up-to-date on the blogs you follow?

I use an RSS-reader to keep up with the blogs and websites that interest me.

I use Bloglovin a bit to follow, or read within Wordpress, but I also am prone to clicking links via Twitter or when directed via IG.

Bummer about your app, but hey, you can still say you had one!
