Saying goodby to Google Reader....

Have you heard?  Google Reader will soon be gone.

       And I have to wonder how long it will be before Google Friend Connect follows...

For me.... Saying goodby has been a piece-of-cake.

But that's not such a bad thing.  Because there's a new reader in my blog life now.

      And I have moved on.

Bloglovin' is now my reader of choice.  And we are so much more compatible!

Follow on Bloglovin

I have chosen to have it delivered each day to my inbox.  One email - and with one click I can open a tab to Bloglovin' and see any new posts from all the blogs I follow.  My Bloglovin' list shows the first few lines of any new posts with a picture.  Then I can choose to read those that catch my eye first.  Each opens in a new tab.  When I am done reading and/or commenting, and close that tab, I am returned to the Bloglovin' tab and that post is already marked as read.  I love it!

Are you interested to know how to import the blogs you follow on Google Friend Connect and Google Reader to Bloglovin'?

        Again....  Piece of cake!  (I seldom refuse a second piece!)

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!

  Here's a step by step...
(1) Go to this page, (2) click on ‘Google Reader’, then on (3) ‘Import from Google Reader’, (4) then on 'Accept' to grant authentication and off you go!

And while we're at it.....    Let’s go with BlogLovin as a Google Friend Connect replacement!
      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.  Your visits keep me smiling!

To follow my blog with Bloglovin', you can click on the sidebar buttons found under my profile pic.
       All the choices are still there for now.

But if you don't wish to sign up with Bloglovin'.....
   You can still choose to have email updates by clicking on the RSS button instead.

Keep quilting!
