Google Reader is going....

I was a bit taken back when I logged into my Google Reader and a window popped up stating come July 1, 2013 Reader would be gone! What gone, what's a person to do...that was my first thought as I enjoy the ease of using Google Reader. I set out to do some research to find a new reader, one that I could use with the same ease, and would gather the information from my existing Google Reader. After lots of reading and site visiting I found one that I believe will suit my needs, it is Feedly.

It looks like this....
feedly apps
Feedly can also be used on the iPhone and Androids, just as easily as your computer.
In the past 48 hours over 500,000 Google Readers have join Feedly!

The switch over took only a few minutes and I was up and running, all my feeds were loaded and ready for me to read. Now I'm not big on change, so Feedly will take a bit of time for me to get use to. The great thing is I have several months before Google Reader is gone, this gives me time to play around getting use to Feedly and it's format while I customize it to feel like home.  Hope this helps some of you who like me, were going to be disappointed to see Goggle Reader go.

Happy Reading~Laura

hi Laura! I don't like CHANGE either!! i will really miss Google Reader!! Tom has been trying out Feedly; I'm trying out both BlogLovin' and Bloglines. I used to use Bloglines all the time before I started Google reader. Pluses and minuses with both. Not sure what I'll end up with. :(

Thanks for telling me what you are trying, I would love to hear what you decide to go with. I'm going to see how Feedly works for me, so hoping I can get the hang of it :)
