See ya later, Google reader

I'm sure everyone has heard the devastating news about Google reader. I actually am devastated, sort of. I use it daily to surf blogs using the next button. I don't like reading blogs IN reader though so a lot of the alternatives aren't working for me. I finally decided to try out bloglovin and it's as close as I can find so far (they have a newer/older button instead of next). Until the last possible minute I'm going to stick with Google reader-all the while I'll be hoping they change their mind about discontinuing it-but if anyone is interested in following my blog in bloglovin here's a link-just click on the little button below (or the big one in my sidebar):

Follow on Bloglovin

thank you :)

I don't care for bloglovin. None of my old starred posts were there AND it changed a bunch of the blogs I follow to different ones. I switched over to feedly, which to me kinda seems like a fancier version of google reader. I like it so far, but I'm still reading in gr until the change.

I think I am the odd one out as I don't use it.
I seem to only visit blogs that visit me, and maybe an odd one here or there. I also save them in my bookmarks.

I will miss it, too - except I heard they were trying to bring a few alternatives to the table! As my mom used to say, if it's not one thing, it's your brother ....... LOL!!!

I still consider myself fairly new with blogging so I'm not sure about all the differences. But I will go to the link and make sure I can continue to follow you!

I don't use Google Reader. I check up on my blogs from my blog. Does that make sense? Haha! I wonder though, if I'm going to have to check out Bloglovin for people who may follow my blog in Google Reader?
