What to Do When Google Reader Bites the Dust

So, this week Google made me want to cry when it announced that my much-loved Google Reader is going kaput on July 1.  Google Reader is what I use to stay up to date with my favorite blogs, and I'm really sad that it's disappearing.

I wanted to give you, my wonderful-est readers, a chance to explore new subscription options and find one that works for you if you are also a Google Reader fan.  And I'd of course love for you to resubscribe to my blog once you figure out your new mode of blog devouring.

As for me, I'm going to continue to use Feeddler RSS reader app on my iPad.  And while I'm not 100% sure yet, I think that I'm going to use Bloglovin when accessing my subscriptions on my PC.

What's nice about Bloglovin is that when you create an account, it automatically asks you if you want to import your subscriptions from Google Reader.  So with one click, you can painlessly keep following along with your favorite online writers.  I don't know about you, but I like easy transitions. Whew!

If you'd like to follow along with my on Bloglovin, you can click the link at the top of this post, or here.  You can also follow via the Bloglovin button on the right sidebar of my blog.

Please note -- if you were already following my blog via Bloglovin and want to continue, you're going to have to re-follow (here).  Somehow my last account there for this blog went wonky.  Sorry about that!

If you're currently using Google Reader, what are you switching to?
