Bye Bye Google Reader

I - and I believe many of you, too - love to follow and read blogs via a so called RSS feed reader. What these little gadgets do is aggregate the latest posts from your website subscriptions into one long email or web-based article. That way, I can read the newest articles from my favorite blogs without having to actually visit all the different websites.
You probably know that as of July 1st, 2013, Google's RSS reader will be shutting down for good. This basically means, you will lose all your blog subscriptions if you don't move them to another reader. I wrote about this before, but since many people do things at the last minute (me included), I figured it might be that you haven't switched your RSS subscriptions over to something else.
So here again I have some suggestions for you.

I personally use and love Bloglovin'. It is free, easy to use and gives blogger pageviews (which wasn't the case with Google Reader if I'm informed right). Another plus for me is that they offer an app for iPhone, iPad and Android devices, which comes in handy for reading blogs on the go. If you want to move your Google Reader subscriptions to Bloglovin', click here.

Another popular reader that's been around for a while is Feedly. It is also free and available as an app for Adroid and Apple mobile devices. For tips on how to import your subscriptions to Feedly, read their blog entry here.

A relatively new reader (at least new to me) is blog-connect.com. It easily lets you import your subscriptions and follow other blogs. However, it is available in German only. 

And of course you can follow me via various social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest or Instagram, where I post updates frequently ;)

Thanks for reading, have a great day!
