Google Reader will no longer be an option for blog reading in the near future. This also includes Google Friend Connect, which I’ve been using in the sidebar of my blogs as an easy way for readers to add my blogs to their Google Reader feeds.
So, here are the options for anyone who wants to keep up with their favorite blogs.
Bloglovin and Feedly are two alternatives for following blog feeds. I’m currently using Bloglovin because I liked their format, but both are supposed to be good for following blog feeds. Both allow you to move your existing subscription easily from Google as well.
Another option is to subscribe via e-mail. Both of my blogs have a subscription option in the sidebar for anyone who would like to receive blog posts in their e-mail inbox.
