{trending | fondest farewell, google reader : hello feedly & bloglovin}

So.  It has finally come to this, and despite knowing for months now — like a good procrastinator, have been using google reader right up until this very moment, and will most likely continue to do so, until it is gone forever, on Monday [!] — a little due to a resistance to change, but mostly due to the fact that had actually quite loved google reader . . .


And if you are also a serious procrastinator [and it looks like most of you] and have not yet made the switch, the two most recommended replacements seem to be feedly and bloglovin’ :

As to which one of the two would recommend, the answer would be that haven’t the faintest, as have not yet made the switch, but have, however, just backed up and downloaded all of the data . . .

If you are in the same situation and have yet to decide, here are a few instructions for backing up your account.  And in the meantime, if you are looking for ways to keep up with new posts here, there is always twitter & facebook // update : there are also digg reader & the old reader.

{p.s.} if you’re reading this article on an ipad or your mobile, something new.

10 Notes
  • You’re slowly building up your followers on Bloglovin’, so you’re on a good way to replicate the following from the GFC. I’m already following you there, so I am prepared for the Doom Day!

  • I’ve recently switched to feedly and am quite satisfied as of yet!

  • … I transferred to Bloglovin but not crazy about it … I’m not a blogger, just a reader, so not as critical for me maybe …. I will try feedly … thanks for starting this topic, I will be watching responses.

  • I too have waited until the very last minute, and so sad about this!!

    Since I’m so not very “techy” I have no idea what it means to back up you account. Do I need to this? What will this do?

    Thank you for the tips! Losing all of my GFC connect followers definitely is painful! :(

  • I tried Feedly and Bloglovin’. I didn’t like them.
    And then I tried The Old Reader, and this one I like!

    Can you help the technologically challenged? How does one switch from google reader to feedly or bloglovin’ or to any other reader for that matter?

  • Chicago Chic — you do not need to back up if you are simply switching to a new reader such as feedly or bloglovin’, or any of the ones mentioned here — each reader will import all your feeds for you — hope that helps! x

  • lisa — when you choose another reader, feedly, for example, simply click “one-click google reader import” and it will transfer all your feeds from google reader to your new reader x

  • Thank you for stopping in to say hello — it's lovely to hear from you!
