Google Reader Is Going Away!
Well guys, the time has come. As some of you may know, Google Reader is going away for good, on July 1st. Hopefully this isn't a surprise. Apparently, Google Reader was not being used enough for Google to continue maintaining it. So if you use Google Reader, like I do, you will have to move to a different platform, in order to keep track of the blogs you currently follow. Feedly.com and bloglovin'.com are two platforms that are talked about quite often. I have been using Feedly for a month or so now, and I just downloaded bloglovin' yesterday. They both have their pros and cons. I am sure there are other programs that can be used, but I don't know what they are. I suggest you at least load both bloglovin' and Feedly immediately to get an idea of which one works better for you. July 1st is right around the corner so don't delay!
It is fairly easy to get your Google Reader list to the other platforms. Here is a link to a tutorial for bloglovin', from one of the blogs I follow, Sew Many Ways. There is a lot more information on the topic. Just Google or Bing it, if you need more info.
Don't forget to click on the new bloglovin' button on the right side of my blog.
