Bye-bye, Google Reader...

So, I've been told that Google Reader is to be no more as of July 1.  I'm confused, I don't know what's happening, I don't know what to do, so I'm taking notes from my blogging friends.

What does this mean for you?  Well, it's simple.  If you want to continue following all of the blogs that you currently follow then you are going to need to do this:

Step 1: head over to Bloglovin.com

Step 2: 

Click on that blue button.  It will then prompt you to enter in YOUR blog address as well as some other information.

Step 3: Wait patiently.  Depending on how many blogs you follow this may take a minute.

Step 4: Add Bloglovin to your Bookmark Bar for quick access

If you currently use Google Friend Connect to follow my blog, apparently you won't be able to do that anymore.  If you follow by email, you're good.

If you notice on the top right section of my blog I have one Bloglovin widget.
It looks like this:


Again, I don't quite know what all of this means, I'm just taking a hint from some fellow bloggers.  I hope this helps, though!!

Thanks for the tips. I've been woring my way through it trying to figure it all out.

I foud an article yesterday that said Google Friend Connect is not going away (yet) so you can still link to blogs through it and still see them through the Blogger Dashboard.

Either way, I'm doing both way just to be safe.

thanks again
