Oranges and Apples after Google Reader closes down

the cold is following me

Just a quick reminder that Google Reader will be closing down on 1 July, so you’ve just got a week and a bit to find somewhere else if you haven’t already.

I know a lot of have switched to bloglovin, which looks nice but I dislike because you have to keep clicking through the read the full posts. However, if that’s your thing, please follow me here.

I personally have been using feedly, which works well for me, it’s aimed to be a magazine type reader but it actually allows you to scroll through all blog posts chronologically as well. And I really like the app, in fact, that’s where I’ve been mainly doing my reading, while giving Milo his bed time feed. I alsways makr things to comment on but often don’t get round to it til a few days/weeks later. So if you have some comments from me on really old posts, that’ll be why. There’s no special Feedly link, you can use my general feed link, plus for now you can still import your google reader. Once you’re set up in feedly you can also just add the url under ‘add new content’ and you’re good to go!

Oh, and you can like my page on facebook too for updates on new posts.

    Eek, I haven’t decided yet what to use after Google Reader shuts down – I’d better get going!

    I’ve been following the same blogs on Old Reader, which allows you to seemlessly transport your subscriptions from Reader. It’s kinda messy but it’s working for now.
    I have a few sweet friend who works at Google here in NY. He defends the closing down of Reader and goes on and on about Google Glasses. I guess he has to support the party line, but I still don’t get the justification.

    Yep, I think we all use ‘readers’ differently, and it’s quite personal! I like bloglovin’ as I now browse very quickly using my desktop computer… and their app is quite good when I’m on my ipad BF-ing!

    And yep, I follow on Bloglovin’! Can you follow me on Feedly ok?
