Google Reader is going Bye-Bye: Here is an Alternative Reader <3

Well folks, July 1st is just around the corner which means the DEATH of Google Reader. I’ve become to rely on Google Reader as my daily feed of blogs that I follow and have been on a mission to find a reader that is the closest resemblance. My mission has been completed!

{ The Old Reader }

Right away you can see the similarities between The Old Reader & Google Reader

The thing that made me jump ship now from Google Reader was the fact that I could import all of the Blogs I follow in a few easy steps. This meant I didn’t have to save each Blog one by one and add them like many readers.

Below I will show you the steps to convert your Blogs from Google Reader to The Old Blog.

1. Log in Google Reader and go to the Settings button in the right corner beneath your Google photo.

2. Click on Reader Settings
