Move that Subscription Over!


Unless you've been under a rock lately, you've probably heard about Google Reader being no more. I don't personally use Google Reader, but I've heard of a lot of readers being a little devastated over this.

Most of the blogs I've seen are switching over to Bloglovin'...that's what I'm recommending y'all follow me through as well!
 


You can click that button above, and it'll take you right where you need to subscribe.  I've been getting lots of notifications of y'all switching over already! I've also heard great things about Feedly...you click one button and switch over.  Nina posted about this not long ago.
 
Now, I think there's one big misconception.  Personally, I read my blogs by looking at my Blogger homepage (once I'm signed in) and clicking on the posts that interest me.  I've followed these blogs by clicking on the Google Friend Connect widget on their page.  This isn't going away...at least not yet anyway!   This post was a great source of info for that.  You're not going to lose the Google Friend Connect widget on your homepage...but, I did notice while I was doing an design install a few nights ago that it is no longer available to put on your blog if you don't already have it.  So don't delete it!
 
Don't freak if you aren't directly using Google reader!  And if you are, I'd recommend switching over with one of the methods above. Easy peasy, I promise!
