Almost July

Hey Friends –

Sorry this isn’t the most exciting post you will ever read. This is just a reminder for  those of you who have been following along through Google Reader.

Google Reader is vanishing from our lives on July 1st. (Why Google Reader instead of Google+, the world will never know.) I wanted to suggest a few other alternatives for keeping up with the blogs you follow (cough, including this one), just in case this is news to you.

1. Subscribe via e-mail. Check out the column on the right side of the page and you will find a little box that reads “Subscribe to Blog via e-mail.” This one is super easy. Enter your e-mail address and receive posts to your inbox any time there is new content on this site.


2. Feedly“Feedly is a lovely, easy-to-use service for two categories of people: those who once used Google Reader, and those who’ve never heard of it. Because if you’re still starting your morning with a zigzag through a standard set of Web sites, you’re wasting time and energy. Feedly is what you needly.” – David Pogue, The New York Times

3. BloglovinBloglovin’ helps people discover and follow their favorite blogs. Today bloglovin’ has over 1.5 million members. The good news is that Bloglovin’ offers a really simple feature for importing the list of blogs you currently follow on Reader into your profile with Bloglovin’.

4. Have you found something else you like? Please chime in the comments section.

And speaking of July – this is the month I’m due to deliver a baby. Potentially even in the next week. (WHAT? Yes.) I will do my best to get back to blogging when I can, but I will more likely post little tidbits on my Facebook page until life is back to “normal.” Here’s the link if you want to stay in the loop. Just like the page and select “get notifications” under the LIKE.

Happy Thursday!

    This was really helpful! I’ve been despondently avoiding having to figure out how to replace Google Reader. Feedly does an automatic import!! Thanks, Ginger!

    • @reneamckenzie:disqus – Woot! Me too. I ended up with Feedly. :)
