The 11th Hour

Tomorrow, July 1, 2013, Google shuts the lights on Google Reader forever.  When I first started this blog in 2009, Google Reader was what I used to keep up with all my favorite blogs.  However, a few years ago I switched over to Bloglovin’ and never looked back.  I’ve been meaning to do a post about this forever, but true to form, I’m here at the eleventh hour…anyway, if you’re a procrastinator just like me, you have until the end of the day to move your feeds over from Google Reader.  USA Today, does a much better job of explaining how than I could ever hope to and also breaks down the benefits of some additional newer alternatives, like Feedly, (which I’m hearing great things about). How do you keep up/subscribe to blogs? I’d love to hear about it in the comments as there are so many different ways to do so, these days!

  1. I find the easiest way to follow blogs is having them on my blogroll. So I can click after I fining working on my latest post. I do subscribe to some and love being able to read them in a down moment.

    I use Google Friend Connect. I never really got how google reader is being canceled or the whole process. I thought the GFC was included or something like that. But I guess not? I wish you luck though! You can do it!

  3. There is also the Old Reader, Newsfire, and apparently Flipboard is also enabling the move from Google reader to their platform. I am going to try three types bc I find that with bloglovin the links don't open. Hopefully they might improve on that one!
