The Times, They are a Changin...


I know, you've likely seen/read/heard everything I'm about to go over, but whatever.

It seems the braniacs running Google are sending Google Reader the way of the dodos (as of July 1st), which means Google Friend Connect will be rendered pretty much useless. What?! It seems like a really odd decision to me but what are you going to do?

So, what can you do to make sure you never miss a post from your favourite blogs- like mine (kidding, kind of...)

  • Import your current Google feed to BlogLovin'. Chelsea at Life Unpublished has put together a great tutorial to show you how (here.) I set mine up and it only took a few minutes.
  • If you don't want to import en-mass, there is a little button in my navigation cloud that will direct you to my BlogLovin' feed. Just hover your mouse, over the clouds (left side, second button from the top.)
  • I've installed a Networked Blogs widget if you'd rather follow that way. I'm new to it, but it seems to be a handy little feed manager.



And, for your listening pleasure, a little Dylan. He'll get us through any blogging crisis! :D
