Adios Google Reader – Hello Bloglovin’


Hi friends! It’s time for the Bloglovin’ Blog Hop – and maybe put some of your minds at ease. By now you may have heard the news – Google Reader is going away. For many, it’s the preferred way to keep track of and read your favorite blogs! Though change is never fun, there are some fun options to switch to, one being Bloglovin’! Bloglovin’ is an easy way to follow blogs and you can read straight from their site, from their mobile app or even elect to have your feed emailed to you. So versatile! And the format is lovely.

Moving your current Google Reader feed to Bloglovin’ is EASY! Just follow the easy steps outlined here. See, that wasn’t too bad, right?

Now I bet you’re looking to connect? What better way than a little blog hop! Hosted by some fun gals, to play along…simply follow the fun hosts below (the first 6 in the list), link up your Bloglovin’ account, and connect with some new Bloglovin’ friends!

Share it!

  3. I didn’t know GFC was going away. How did you find out about this? I will hate to see it go. Thanks so much for sharing this.

    • Ohhh Tracy, it’s all over Twitter. Bloggers are devastated. Thankfully I moved over to using Bloglovin’ a while ago! I prefer it, so I’m not so concerned. But folks will need options if they’re used to using Google Reader!

    • Google Reader is going away on July 1. It was on a messsage box on my Google Reader page. But GFC(Google Friend Connect) was staying.

  4. Thank you so much for this! I went through and followed as many of the above- I love looking at new blogs I haven’t come across. I occasionally use Feedly on my ipad to view things, so I’ll have to try Bloglovin out. :D

  5. Thank you for hosting. I am following via Blog Lovin.

  7. Hey Kimberley, How do we know who has followed us via Bloglovin’ so we know who to follow back? I can see my number of followers on my Bloglovin’ account and via FeedBlitz but not ‘who’ followed. Thanks!

    • Hi Corinna! I’m not sure if there’s a way to see everyone who is following you, but in Settings under Notifications you can elect to have Bloglovin’ send you an email when someone follows your blog. The email gives you a link to that person’s Bloglovin’ profile! I hope that helps!

  8. Thanks for this great article, I was already on BlogLovin but I am sure many are going to find it SUPER helpful!

  9. What about other RSS Feeds that are not blogs. Do I need another reader for those as well?

  10. I switched over to bloglovin and have trouble commenting on some blogs. I hope those are just some glitches they have to work out.

  11. This is exactly what my link-up is this week! I took a look at 3 of the blog readers people are trending towards, BlogLovin being one of them!

  12. I mean, my post for today that would show up in your reader, lol!
