Goodbye Google Reader

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I do not like change. I'll deal with it. But it frustrates me and it stresses me out, even though in most cases the end result is beautiful. When Google announced the other day that they were discontinuing Google Reader I had a fit, a literal fit, I through an adult temper tantrum. Google Reader is how I have been reading all the hundreds of blogs I follow. Immediately after the announcement, it seemed like every other Reader service's website was overloaded, which made finding a replacement hard in the beginning. 

But, I've found it. I am officially moving to Bloglovin'. It has a nice interface and it's easy to add blogs to follow. You can also follow my blog on Bloglovin if you were following it with Google Reader previously. 

I am taking this Reader transition as an opportunity to clean up my blog subscriptions. Instead of importing them all over, I'm adding them one by one, to ensure that I only have blogs that still interest me on my list. 

Did you find yourself thrown for a loop at Google's announcement? What Reader service are you switching to?


  1. I use the app "Reeder" on my mac, iphone, and ipad. It grabs from google reader but you can also add subscriptions from the app. Since it's mainly supported by GR they put out a tweet on that day and said it would still be functional after GR was done. It works the best for me for the volume of sites I follow :) I think I have a Blog Lovin' account too, somewhere, probably.

  2. Oh yes, I was thrown! I'm looking at Aweber, Feedblitz, and MailChimp for my blog feed/email subscriptions. Feedburner just won't do anymore. As far as a reader...I'm still not certain what I'm going to do. I don't particularly care for Bloglovin'.

  3. I signed up with Bloglovin' because someone asked me to follow them on it AND because I thought that I was missing out on something. All of this stuff is still foreign to me. I'm still figuring it all out. Lawd help me! :)
