Post image for Google Reader Is Going Away, but I am Not!

Next Monday, Google Reader is going away!   If you use Google Reader to accumulate your reading from the internet, you should change now.  If you do not know what I am talking about, you probably clicked on an icon to accumulate the blogs and online news through a reader delivered to you in one place.  There are alternatives for delivery of your web based information to you. 

There are a number of options,  Feedly, Bloglovn’ and The Old Reader are just a few.  I read a lot of blogs and articles online.  I tried both Feedly and Bloglivin’ and have not made a decision about which reader I will keep yet.   Bloglovin’ and Feedly help you keep track of the blogs you read by letting you know when they update.  I hope to count on you to continue receiving my articles without interruption. FeedBurner makes it easy to receive content updates in a variety of news readers .Go to Feedly or Bloglovin’ now and sign up!

I never used Google Reader, and it is a bit annoying for us blog owners since I’m sure everyone has at least a couple people who used it to follow their blog.

It shouldn’t really matter that one provider is leaving, but it does! I don’t want to lose one reader.

Greg@ClubThrifty June 26, 2013 at 4:33 am

Ugh. Thanks for reminding me that I need to let everybody know that as well.

Krantcents June 26, 2013 at 9:35 am

You’re welcome! I decided to remind people based on their habits which means all my reminders will be in these last days.

I migrated over to the Old Reader. It took a day or two to get used to but it’s routine now.

Krantcents June 26, 2013 at 9:37 am

Change is difficult! I am trying out Feedly and Bloglovin’ to see which one I like best. Unfortunately, it takes time to get used to it.

I’m pretty worried honestly. Feedly is a good alternative, except it doesn’t work well on my phone. It works on newer phones, but mine’s like 3 years old… this might actually push me to get a new phone just so I can keep commenting from the train!

Krantcents June 26, 2013 at 9:39 am

There are 2 more alternatives (Bloglovin’ and The Old Reader). If you cannot access it, you may want to try one of the others unless you just want a new phone.

Thanks for the reminder! Hopefully the transition doesn’t give people too many hiccups…

Krantcents June 26, 2013 at 9:41 am

You’re welcome! Since most people wait to the end to change, I thought I would wait to remind everyone. The transfer is pretty easy with both Bloglovin’ and Feedly.

Greg@Thriftgenuity June 26, 2013 at 9:29 am

I think I am going to use the Old Reader. Haven’t done it yet. Thanks for the reminder.

Krantcents June 26, 2013 at 9:43 am

I am still trying them out to see which one I like the best.

I subscribed to a lot of blogs on Google reader (mostly to help blogger friends improve their stats) but I never really used the reader. I have a routine of sites that I read when I get online either via bookmarks or just by typing in and the rest of my browsing is via pinterest or stumble upon. Some really good (to me) sites, I have email subscription. I have to get on using twitter too. All these put together will solve my needs I guess.

I used a variety of methods to keep up with my reading too. I started using Google reader about 2 years ago and found it more efficient for me. I am still testing out Bloglovin’ and Feedly to see which one I like better. I am always looking for more efficient ways of keeping up with my reading.

I signed up for feedly but have mostly still been reading on Google Reader. Feedly seems ok, so I’m sure I’ll get used to it once I have no choice.

Krantcents June 26, 2013 at 12:42 pm

Yes, I am still testing them (Bloglovin’ and Feedly) too and using Google Reader in the meantime.

Mike@WeOnlyDoThisOnce June 26, 2013 at 1:36 pm

Enjoying Feedly much more than Reader, actually.

Krantcents June 26, 2013 at 1:45 pm

Great! I am still checking out both Feedly and Bloglovin’.

Pauline June 27, 2013 at 4:15 pm

If you want a Google reader-like experience, you could open a new gmail account and subscribe to all your favorite blogs by email. I am going with feedly but may resort to that if I don’t like it on the long term.

Krantcents June 27, 2013 at 4:28 pm

The thought of getting a couple hundred emails a day sounds overwhelming. I think I will stick with a reader.
