I’m approaching the end of my second year as a paid subscriber and I’m considering switching to another RSS reader product that has full text search, like Feedly or The Old Reader. I’d like to stick with Newsblur because there are some things I quite like about it, but I still miss this important piece of functionality from Google Reader. I really liked being able to think “Oh, I read something about that earlier. Where did I see that?” and being able to search all my read items and find out.
this is truthfully a missing feature for me too. your description is spot on: oooh where did i read that?
