RIP Google Reader.

It's simply crazy that Google Reader will be no more in several hours ... simply craaazy!

I hope you know what to do to continue following your favourite blogs and RSS feeds. What are you planning to do? Have you found your new reader?
It's just one of those first-world problems that life throws you.

I recommend Bloglovin'. I did my research, looked at the layouts of the various options, and decided Bloglovin' looked most like what I wanted - a simple and effective home page of all unread blogs, easy to quickly view and navigate around.

I've been using Bloglovin' for several weeks now, and it did take me a little while to get used to it .. but I am liking it. A lot. It's actually faster than Google Reader when  loading blogs and images, and I can actually see the blogs I follow - colourful layouts n' all.
Plus, they have this great button which gets all your Google Reader information and magically transports it to the new program. It takes no more than a few minutes to change .. no need to loose anything.

There are other options. Feedly is a very popular one at the moment. It is similar to Bloglovin' - very sharp and easy to use. AOL and a few others have just brought out their own reader too.
You could also follow your favourite blogs via Facebook, or even subscribe the old-fashioned way via email. How archaic.
Need to help deciding?  Read this helpful article.

So .. rest in peace Google Reader ... now it's time to take the leap!
Make sure you find something to replace Reader .. and follow me on Bloglovin'!

It's where I'm currently at .. and you can easily (ie at the click of that great single button) transport all your blogs and feeds in one swoop to this new site, and your life could continue on as you now know it.

(pin it)
