I’ve been using Google Reader for years and I was shocked when Google announced they’d be ending my favorite RSS reader next week on July 1st. I still haven’t decided what reader I’m going to use instead, but I’m leaning towards BlogLovin’. If you’re using Google Reader, make sure you go ahead and back up all of your feeds before the site shuts down this Monday – you can do so here.
I like BlogLovin’ because, like Google Reader, it is super simple and straightforward. I don’t really want any distracting bells and whistles. I just want to read posts from my favorite blogs, and “heart” articles I enjoy along the way. BlogLovin’s blog has a tutorial on how you can import your Google Reader feeds into your account at their site.
What alternatives are you all considering to replace Google Reader. Have you found another that is as clean and simple as Google Reader?
