Have you heard that as of July 1, Google Reader is going away? That means if you’re currently following your favorite blogs using Google Reader, you’ll have to come up with another alternative before then.
It looks like about 35% of my readers follow this blog using Google Reader, or GR, and I definitely don’t want to lose you in July. That’s why I want to recommend Feedly.
Feedly has always played well with GR, and for that reason they’ve got a great transition plan for those who currently use Google Reader, to ease the pain that readers will feel when Google turns off GR in July.
But why wait for the transition plan? You can go ahead and move to Feedly right now, and you’ll be ahead in the game!
Just click on over to Feedly and this is what you’ll see:
The simplest way to get started, in my opinion, is to click the “connect to Google Reader”. You’ll have to authorize Feedly to access your Google Reader feed, but once you do that, it will do the rest. It will sync with GR to move all your subscriptions over to Feedly, where you can access them on your desktop and mobile devices.
There are other alternatives to Google Reader (like using Facebook and Twitter to track your favorite blogs), but Feedly is, in my opinion, going to feel more like what you’re used to.
I’m not happy about the fact that Google Reader is going away, but I can breathe a little easier knowing that Feedly will pick up right where GR leaves off.
Oh! Subscribing via email is always an option, too. You can subscribe to The Lazy Pit Bull by clicking here.
So, will you be moving to Feedly today?
