Bye Bye Google Reader/GFC Alternative Ways to Follow Me!

Sorry this is a techy post but I thought it was best to explain whats happening to GFC. I've kept it short and sweet.

In case you don't already know Google have announced that Google Reader will no longer exist after 1st July. Even though we're not sure what will happen to GFC my guess is that this will also make GFC pretty pointless.

But never fear. Bloglovin' is here!

If you don't already use Bloglovin' as a reader, it's free and easy to sign up here. It's a great way of keeping up with your favourite blog posts and also has an IOS app. You can comment on blog posts straight from their site and, unlike other readers, it gives bloggers page views (unlike google reader who liked to pinch them all).

If you've been following blogs through google reader then Bloglovin' have made it super easy to import them all by just clicking a couple of buttons and voila! All your favourite blog posts are now easy to read and all in one place.

Here's how:

Importing the blogs you follow into to BlogLovin':

1 - Go HERE
2 - Click on ‘Google Reader’.
3 - ‘Import from Google Reader’,
4 - Grant Authentication and then your done! It's as simple as that.

Unfortunately you can't import your GFC followers so its up to the follower to switch to a different network, so you can follow this blog using any of the following (or even all of them if you want): Bloglovin', Networked Blogs and Linky which are in the side bar or alternatively you can subscribe by email.
