Bye Bye Google Reader !!

Hello my friends.  This is an impromptu post so there will be no organization to it...not that there is a lot of organization to my posts normally....Anyway, I have seen around the old blog land today a bit of angst from the announcement that the Google Reader will be gone July.  I know that many use that to keep up with the blogs they follow.  I use Blogger Dashboard, probably because I don't know any better.  Who knows how long that will be around.

I don't know how to help you out on this but I know someone who has already done a great job of researching this for you all.

Sandra, at 'Diary of a Stay at Home Mom' has a complete list of help and is happy to share it all.  Here is the wealth of info that should help you all out.

Have a good evening, my friends.  xo

I have been using Google Reader for some time. I helps organize the blogs I read (yours is one of them).
I have found bloglovin and it is sort of similar.

This makes me glad I didn't know enough to use Google Reader, either. I so dislike these "improvements" that only make things worse.

Well, I didn't know that about google reader. Like you, I just use the dashboard. the igoogle personal home page is gone too. I wonder what's next. Seems they're trying to go in a different direction these days especially with pushing google+. I just don't have time for so called social (marketing, really) networks!

wow...that is great research and information! thank you for the referral. Bloglovin
is just like goggle reader and it is easy to download and join.

Thanks for the link, dear friend! I am so sad they will be getting rid of GFC followers and reader. I don't know why they always have to change.

I hope your Sunday has been wonderful.

Love and hugs,
Stephanie

Hi Sherri! In reading this, I was wondering if you have had any trouble with Blogger dashboard? My reading list seems to have vanished from my dashboard without a trace! Just wondering if that had happened to anyone else?
