Google Reader Retiring...Time to Choose Another Option for Following (If You Have Not Already)

As you may or may not yet know, Google is retiring their Reader as of July 1, 2013. This means that if you follow Fabulous Florida Mommy via Google Reader, you will need to switch to a different platform (if you have not already) to continue receiving blog updates.

From the information I've read, it appears that if you have a Blogger account, you can still continue to follow via Google Friend Connect, BUT if you don't have a Blogger account and you are currently using Google Reader, there are several other options that you can use to continue following me...

*Feedly - I just switched over to this one today, and so far really like it. It's easy to switch all of your feeds over too...just sign into your Google account via Feedly, and your Google blog feed will be switched over for you. They don't have a social media button yet, but I will be sure to put it on the sidebar as soon as they do.

*Email: Just type your email address in the 'Follow by Email...' box in the right sidebar and click Subscribe.

    do we follow each other via bloglovin?

  2. Now call me crazy, but I can still access all my blogs through the blog dashboard, right? I never used Google Reader, just found it easier to visit (and comment) through the dashboard. If it does mean that dashboard is going away, then I have a ton of work to do before Monday! ;)

    1. Hi Dina! I'm pretty sure the dashboard will still be accessible. It seems to be just the RSS feed that is being retired. :)
