Wondering On Wednesday


On Monday, July 1st, Google will shut down its Google Reader Service :(
So, I want to ask the pups and their peeps which reader alternative you will (or have been) using?
I've compiled a list of Google Reader alternatives.  They are, in no particular order:

 1.)   Digg Reader

 2.)   Feedly

 3.)   Aol Reader

 4.)   Flipboard

 5.)   The Old Reader

 6.)   Bloglovin'

 7.)   NewsBlur

 8.)   Netvibes

 9.)   Bulletin.io

10.)  News360

Please let me know if you've tried any of these alternatives!  If so, do you like your new reader?
I'd love to see if there is a majority favorite among pet bloggers!  Thank you!

  4. Guess we missed this. Is this the reader in blogger to follow every one. Can you give us any details on the bloglovin and how to get it!

    1. Yes - that's the reader I'm talking about. I haven't joined any new reader yet, but if you click on my Bloglovin' link, it will take you directly to the screen where you can join that reader.

    1. Does your mom usually find out about the latest blog posts through the reader in Blogger? If so, that is going away on July 1st, and she'll need to pick a new reader. I just pointed out some of the alternative readers to pick from.

  7. Howdy Stewey, oh oh, we might be in trouble. Mum doesn't even know if we use Google Reader or what that is! Guess we'll have to wait till 1 July to find out. No worries (we hope) and love, Stella and Rory

  8. We just use blogger reader, too. If something happens, we'll deal with it then.

    1. You might want to at least download your reader data to Google Takeout, if you don't know which alternative reader you will use.

    1. Yes - that is the reader that will be gone on July 1st. So, you can download your reader data to Google Takeout, or just import seamlessly if you join a reader such as Bloglovin' or Feedly.

    1. It's the reader that is available to see posts in Blogger. And, it will be gone on July 1st. So, it's a good idea to pick out a new alternative reader now!

  11. Hi, Stewey!
    These days we have not been able to blog... but we know about the thing with GR.
    My mom tried the Old Reader and Bloglines... without much luck.
    Now we have the Feedly. A little bit different from GR but not very hard to use.
    Take care
    Kisses and hugs

    1. Thanks so much for your feedback!
      I'm assuming you like your new reader, since it's similar to the Google Reader?!?

  13. We switched to Feedly about 2 months ago. So far it's working great for us. In fact, I stopped using Google Reader completely now.

  16. T Myers - I read that you can download all of your Reader data through the use of "Google Takeout." Hope this helps.
