Time to Change!

HI! If you subscribe to this blog via Google Reader, well, it's dying as of July 1. Not my blog, but Google Reader. I've copied part of a post I borrowed from Author Media (a blog for writers I subscribe to). It gives you the details. I've been using Feedly for several weeks and like it a lot.

Of course, you can always subscribe to daily or weekly emails of posts from this blog by filling in the 2 boxes in "Subscribe for Free Updates" at the top right hand of this blog... thanks for reading!

Readers, have you made the switch?

In case you’ve forgotten, Google Reader shuts down on July 1. That’s in just a few days.

The good new is that switching isn’t hard. Some services, such as Feedly (which is what I use) allow you to import your Google Reader settings, which means no need to spend hours re-subscribing to your favorite sites. But you’ll need to get on that quickly–if July 1 comes and you haven’t switched, you’ll likely have to start from scratch.

Below is a list of 10 alternatives to Google Reader. Check them out, pick your favorite, make the switch. Do it before July 1. Better yet, do it right now, before you forget. 

  1. Feedly
  2. Flipboard
  3. Google Currents
  4. NetVibes
  5. NewsBlur
  6. Pulse
  7. Reeder
  8. Taptu
  9. The Old Reader
  10. Zite
