Goodbye Google Reader - How to Make the Move to Bloglovin

Sunday, March 17, 2013

Do you follow this blog {or any others} with Google Reader or Google Friend Connect?

It's official: Google Reader will cease to exist as of July 1st. (Source)

So, what do you do now? It's actually super simple. I've been toying around with Bloglovin, and I have to admit... I love it just as much as more than I loved Google Reader. And Bloglovin makes it ridiculously simple to make the move. I was shocked. And here I was, all worked up just thinking about how long it would take me to visit each blog and re-subscribe. Boy was I wrong! 

If you already use Bloglovin, just click HERE. Click "Import from Google Reader," then click "Allow Access." That's it! Just two clicks, and every blog you were following with Google Reader will be magically imported to Bloglovin. How's that for easy?!

If you're new to Bloglovin, it's easy to sign up using your email or Facebook. Just click HERE.

One of my favorite features is the ability to "like" a post. Bloglovin saves your likes, so you can easily revisit your favorite projects, tips, recipes, and other posts. 

Oh, did I mention there's also an awesome app for the iPhone? There is, and I love it! 

If you're a blogger, it's easy to "claim" your blog. I claimed mine and installed the "follow this blog with bloglovin" button in less than 5 minutes. After you sign up for a Bloglovin account, just click on your name at the top right of the page, click "My blog," and click "Claim blog." The prompts were very easy to follow! 

If you're following Aprons 'n Pearls using Google Reader or
Google Friend Connect, I encourage you to make the switch today...  Follow my blog with Bloglovin!
