As most of you know, earlier this year Google announced that it was closing the doors on its feed reader, Google Reader. On July 1, 2013, those of us that use Google Reader as a means to capture posts from all of the blogs we “follow,” will no longer have that service. I rely heavily on Google Reader to keep me up to date with my favorite authors and review blogs. I also use it to follow friend and family blogs. There is no way I’d be able to keep up with each of these sites if I had to visit each one separately.
I have purposely been avoiding the news and panic, knowing that eventually someone would find a good alternative and figure out how to transfer the feeds. So now that July 1 is approaching, I thought I’d reach out to you all for some help!
For those of you that subscribe to some sort of feed reader service…
What service do you use? What are the pros and cons of that service?
Did you transfer your feeds from Google Reader? If so, how did you accomplish this and was it difficult?
Where do you access your feed reader (via computer, phone, tablet, etc.)? I currently only use my laptop to read feeds and blogs.
Thanks for stopping to chat!
