Bye Bye Google Reader, Hello Bloglovin’

Hey guys! I hope you’re all having a great week!  This is kind of a techy post, so I’ll make it short and sweet.  Don’t use Google Reader as your reader?  Then you’re fine! But if you do, I recommend switching to Bloglovin’.

I have no clue why Google Reader is soon to be gone.  But, I have made the transition to Bloglovin’ to read up on the blogs I follow.  It was actually super simple and literally took all of 3 minutes.

You just create a Bloglovin’ account and in the process it asks if you want to import the blogs you read on Google Reader to your new Bloglovin’ account.  Click the button to import and that’s it!

The platform looks similar to Google Reader…

Don’t worry if you don’t see your blog on my list of reads…I subscribe to most of them via email.  :)

And if you prefer to read your favorite blogs on your phone or iPad, here is the Bloglovin’ app!

Thank you all for being such loyal readers.  I feel so lucky!  Now go get your read on and Follow my blog with Bloglovin!!

Or, if readers aren’t your thing, of course you can opt for email updates instead! (See the box below.)

I should note– I wasn’t compensated in any way for this post.  Just wanted to share my thoughts on switching reader platforms in case the soon to be disappearance of Google Reader has got you flustered. ;)
