I was hoping that Google would change their minds at the last minute and not get rid of Google reader. Too bad, so sad! They did get rid of it. But the (semi) good news is that until tomorrow you can export your blog lists to another blog reader. After that you’ll have to find all the blogs you’ve been following from scratch. (That completely sucks! Google, why???)
Most bloggers are going with Bloglovin’, and while I naturally shy away from products and companies that intentionally drop the final -g, I’m going to go with the popular girls and jump on the Bloglovin’ bandwagon.
It is incredibly simple to switch over. But you only have a few more hours! This is what I did:
–Went to Bloglovin’ and signed up for an account.
–The final step said “do you want to import your blogs from Google Reader?” I hit the yes button and it did just that (it took a while though!)
That was it! If you want more detailed instructions you can go here. She has a super easy step-by-step tutorial.
I hope you stick around and continue to read my blog. I love you, after all. You can always sign up for blog alerts to be emailed to you. Just do that over on the side.
