Google Reader Alternatives: Lovin Bloglovin it is Tasty!
You might have heard by now that Google Reader will be deactivated this July. This was pretty much heartbreaking news for Mary and I since we've been longtime Google Reader power users. It's been such a great tool for us to keep track of our huge and growing list of favorite blogs.
If you too are a Google Reader junkie and looking for a replacement come July, I hope you will add E.A.T. (pretty please) as I am planning to make the switch to Bloglovin, and recently imported my entire Google Reader feeds with the click of a button. Bloglovin is another blog reader platform that allows you to easily stay updated with all your favorite blogs by letting you know when they've published a new post.
You can follow me on Bloglovin by clicking this link. It's been a fun switch so far in that Bloglovin also recommends similar blogs to the ones you're already following — just what I need another food blog!
Learn more about Bloglovin's handy Google Reader importer to see if it's the right route for you too. Here's a screen of the import taking place when we made the switch:
Not the "reader" type of follower? No worries, if you like you can opt to receive an email every time I publish a new post by entering in your email address in the right sidebar — don't worry, I cannot see the emails or use them in any capacity (not that I would spam even if I could!).
And while I am talking about keeping in touch, you can find me on Facebook and Twitter and a bunch of other places like Pinterest, Instagram, and Tumblr in the upper right sidebar!
Honestly I am bummed Google Reader is going away? But I am happy to have come across Bloglovin'! What alternatives are you planning to use when it's closed down? I am always interested in finding great alternatives.
E.A.T. local E.A.T. well
