The End of Google Reader

Ok, so this is going to be the 250,000 post you've read about the end of  Google Reader. Believe me, I'm as sick of reading these post as you are, but I would be a terrible blogger I don't at least mention it. 

If for some reason you live on the moon or only follow my blog, or something crazy, and haven't heard, as of July 1 Google Reader is going away. That's in 2.5 days. Yes, I've waited to the absolute last minute to write about it cause I really really hoped it wasn't actually going to happen. 

I've been hoping Google was going to make another announcement saying "Oops, our bad. We're keeping Reader around because its easy, free and ugh, what a pain to switch." But, no such announcement has been made so I can only begrudgingly urge you to follow me {and all of your favorite blogs} using another feed reader. Bottom line, if you want to continue getting updates about Montessori tot school, or my pregnancy, or all the other fun stuff we have going you are going to have to switch -- and soon. 

Personally, I'm going to give Bloglovin' a try. It honestly hasn't been my favorite in the past, but that's because I've been such a die-hard Reader user. So, I'm going to give it a real try but be open to switching. 

If Bloglovin' isn't your thing, leave a comment and tell me what feed reader you are going to be using, I would love to check out some good alternatives.

I've switched to feedly and have really liked it! It's like Google Reader but has even fewer kinks!

I've found that The Old Reader is the most similar to Google Reader. It's a little slow at times, but I like it!
