When I learned that Google Reader is set to end this summer I was devastated Part of me hoped it was some evil internet hoax, like when those crazy posts come out saying that they are going to start making you pay for Facebook. Ending Google Reader is not OK.
I'm not ready to say goodbye to my Google Reader. I don't go to websites independently. I barely have time to brush my teeth everyday. But my reader? Everyday. And if I'm on vacation or if I'm so crazy busy that I miss a day here or there (or a week) it's all nicely filed away and waiting for me- organized and calling my name. It's a beautiful, beautiful thing.
I'm not sure that I'm ready to forgive Google, but I also don't know what alternative I have. I blog in Google have personal email in Google and I live within my Google drive so I'm not sure I can announce that I'm boycotting them. Instead I can just be very, very sad.
SO, if you are like me and are wondering how life is suppose to go on, here are some Reader Alternatives from the Huff Post. (And if you only read my blog through your reader and otherwise would never check it, then, well, why don't you go ahead and set up one of these alternatives now just so you won't forget when the time comes :) )
