Farewell, Google Reader!

You may have heard by now that Google reader is shutting down in a few days. I personally used Google reader to keep up with my favorite blogs, so I have tested out a few alternatives over the past few weeks. My favorite is definitely Bloglovin', and Feedly comes second. The switch couldn't be easier to make, and I actually like them better than Google reader.

- Bloglovin' allows you to organize the blogs you follow (either publicly or privately) into categories, makes it easy to discover new blogs, has a free app for easily reading blogs on the go, and gives you the possibility to like posts (and such find all your favorite posts on one page). You can easily create an account on here, find me on Bloglovin' right here, and import your favorite blogs from Google reader to Bloglovin' in one click here.

- Feedly has a simple and clean interface, is easy to use, allows you to tag and share your favorite posts, loads quickly, and you can import your Google reader to Feedly in one click and two minutes tops.

I hope this is helpful if you haven't made the switch yet, and I hope you'll continue reading Oh The Lovely Things!
