BlogBridge is no longer available. Goodbye.


After a glorious run of almost 10 years, regretfully, BlogBridge is no longer available as a supported product. While it still has innovations that have not been copied in newer products, the fact is that the interest in dedicated rss readers has passed and it does not make commercial sense to continue. Actually, it hasn't made commercial sense for several years, but I am sentimental about it!

Frequently Asked Questions about BlogBridge

Do I have to stop using BlogBridge? No you may continue using it as long as you want, for free. However it will no longer be supported. We rather not receive emails requesting for help with it because there will be little we will be able to do to help you.

Can I still download the program? Yes you can, although it may not work as expected. We make no promises. Your mileage will vary. Etc. Etc. Mac DownloadWindoze DownloadLinux Download.

What happens now that the service is shut down? You will no longer be able to "sync" and all accounts will devolve down to 'free' status. Otherwise you should be able to continue using BlogBridge on any of your computers, forever.

What about my data? After a reasonable period, all your data that might be stored on our servers will be deleted, including your account information, passwords and so on. We've never had access to your financial data (e.g. credit cards.) That has always and only been stored with Paypal and will be subject to their standard excellent policies.

What is going to happen to the code? The code is and remains Open Source. While we are no longer working on it, all of it is still available to you if you are so inclined. You can find all of it in public repositories on Github. Here are the relevant urls: BlogBridge CoreBlogBridge UtilitiesBlogBridge Server Admin console, BlogBridge Feed Library Manager, and the BlogBridge Service itself.

Wait what is each of those bits? 
I would like to work on the code. How can I? You are welcome to access the source code (see previous) and modify it and use it for your own purposes. I would ask for appropriate attribution and respecting the license terms.

I would like to take over BlogBridge as the maintainer. Can I? Please contact me directly at rps@salas.com.
