Yeah yeah yeah, google reader's going bye bye

If you haven't been living under a rock, I'm sure you've heard Google Reader is going out the window in a few months. July 1st to be specific. If you have been under a rock, I feel privileged that you come out just to see my blog! Keep at it all my lovely rock people!

So naturally, everyone and their brother have been running posts urging you to switch your method of following over to Bloglovin' , and I suppose that's a bandwagon I can hop onto.

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I can only assume this is happening, not because as google suggests people are using their reader less (although this may be true) but rather because they are making a push towards getting everyone hooked on Google Plus. A few months ago I set myself up there, updated my profile, and have been sharing all most posts via my google+ .

As for me, I have been following blogs pretty much exclusively using blogger/GFC. All the blogs I read show up in the blog's I follow list on my blogger home page, and I click over to each one individually. I have no idea if this function will be disappearing along with google reader proper or not. So in the next few weeks I'll be transferring all you guys on over to bloglovin just in case.

How do you currently follow my blog? What will you be switching to as google reader goes out the window? Or are you not a follower, I recommend that you become one!


  1. When I first heard about Google Reader, I switched over to Feedly, but I'm not sure how I feel about it yet so I might try out Bloglovin and see how it goes.

  2. You are listed on my blog roll. New ones sort to the top. I can usually remember what I've read or not. Sometimes I go further back to find where I want to comment, if I couldn't comment on first reading. I do this all all in the browser. I don't need no steenkin Reader!

  3. However, that stupid robot test does piss me off. You do know you're helping to create Skynet with that, right?

  4. Like Bex's comment, I am trying out Feedly AND Bloglovin', but I'm still not feeling either of them. Only time will tell! I do follow you on Google+ as well, but I hardly go on there (even though I really like it!). Time to remedy that!
