Google Reader is Going Away but I Hope You'll Stick Around!

  If you're using Google Reader, you need to make a switch!  I switched to Feedly.com.

A lot of people visit this blog from Google Reader, and if you're one of them you need to know that on July 1 Google Reader is shutting down for good.  If you're using Google Reader and don't move your feed subscriptions to another service, you won't be able to transfer them after July 1. 

After investigating different options, I downloaded my reader data from Google (here's how) and switched feeds for the many blogs I follow to Feedly.com.  I've been using Feedly for several weeks now and I'm very happy with it.  There are also other feed reader options such as NetNewsWire, The Old Reader, or Blog Lovin'.

To make sure you never miss an updated recipe on Kalyn's Kitchen, the most dependable way to follow the blog is by signing up for e-mail updates.  (This method is most dependable because updated older posts don't show up on many RSS Readers, but they do go out on e-mail updates.)

You can also follow Kalyn's Kitchen by following me on Twitter, Pinterest, or Facebook.  No matter which way you choose, I appreciate your support of my blog and sincerely hope you'll stick around!

I follow your updates via the Blogroll I have created over the years. I hope it is not somehow connected to Google Reader.

Merisi, you should be fine!

I hope it all works out. I haven't heard of Google Reader. It's hard to keep up with all the constant changes isn't it.

Ann, I think constant change is the only thing that stays the same about the internet!

I have switched over to Feedly but I'm so frustrated! I love Google's feature that allows me to search through all of my feeds...and I can't find a single other RSS aggregator that will do that for me. It seems like such a simple request...but apparently not.
I've got you on email and RSS subscription though so no worries! I'll figure out a solution that makes me happy somewhere down the road!

Amanda, thanks for sticking around! I agree it's frustrating. I wish Google would have kept their reader too.

I love email subscription for the blogs I follow. Gets in front of me that way.

Kalyn Denny said...

Thanks Chris! And I am becoming a convert to e-mail as well. I just signed up with a couple of blogs that way.

I switched to feedly a couple of weeks ago thanks to your recommendation. I really appreciate it.

Kalyn Denny said...

Lady Concierge, thanks for sticking around and glad to hear that Feedly is working for you!

I tried Feedly when I first heard about Google Reader and I've gotten used to it. Works fine for me.

Kalyn Denny said...

Alcatmom, me too. I would have kept Google Reader forever if I could have, but Feedly seems fine.
