When the announcement was made this spring that Google Reader would be no more come July I was miffed and a little panicky all at once. What would I do to find new posts on blogs now? I surely did NOT want to return to the days when I would click on links to each of the blogs I followed to see if new posts were up and ready to read. Right after the announcement I did a little research but quickly stepped away from it and was drawn back to my ever-present grading during the semester. I think a part of me hoped something would change about the Reader so I wouldn’t have to deal with its demise after all.
Fast forward to yesterday. I had clicked on the stats page for my blog and saw an incoming link from “Bloglovin.” I hadn’t heard of it before and immediately clicked to check it out. Low and behold, here was the answer to my Google Reader conundrum! I read about the service, then set up an account, imported my blogs from Google Reader, and “claimed” my blog through the service so that people could add my blog to their Bloglovin accounts. The whole thing only took a few minutes and was simple to complete. If you’re looking for a Google Reader replacement, check out Bloglovin, and while you’re at it, feel free to follow me on there with the link below. And to the reader who came in via Bloglovin, whoever you are, thank you!
And because I can’t post without a picture, here were my onions and peppers late last week! Since the cold snap the peppers have been under a row cover, but are still thriving.
