Having my blog subscriptions organized in Google Reader makes following blog posts very easy. Unfortunately, Google is removing its reader from their system come July 1, 2013 and that means only one thing…move from current space to new spot soon or else.
But, with little time on hand, what are the best alternatives in readers and how easy are the transfers?
Although there seems to be several good alternatives, today I transferred over to the feedly reader, an RSS news reader much like the Google Reader. Not only was the transfer simple but I found a wealth of cool options and an eye appealing overall layout over at feedly.
♥ I believe the feedly reader and I are going to have a beautiful future together.
Now, to transfer from the Google Reader to feedly, I followed the easy instructions for Chrome browser users below. You will need to read Transitioning From Google Reader to Feedly if you are using another browser.
1. Go to www.feedly.com 2. You will land on their home page. Click, Get feedly on Chrome, free. 3. Next, click connect to Google Reader 4. Click Allow Access 5. Done!
I say, wow! Check out your new reader…what I love so far is the various ways you can highlight your subscriptions.
I am floating on cloud nine with the magazine layout…what a dreamy way to dig into your favorite blogger’s posts! You have a choice to set your post listings in either the general Google Reader version: Title on View, a no-nonsense layout or more eye appealing versions, the colorful Magazine, Cards or Full Article views.
Hey, but do not take my word for it, go over to feedly and experience the adventure yourself!
What is your favorite RSS reader?
Okay, I must go home to feedly now…
