RIP Google Reader – but the Blog lives on!
If you, like me, get your blogs aggregated through Google reader, you were shocked to discover that Google Reader is going away as of July 1st.
I had a moment of panic when I contemplated having to actually visit the various web pages for the blogs I read on a regular basis. However a quick search later (yes, on Google) I discovered Feedly. I gave Feedly permission to access my Google reader information and in seconds I had it working in the same way Google reader worked for me. Further, Feedly has some very nice layout options that are actually an improvement on my traditional Google reader experience.
For more options, here are some articles talking about Google Reader alternatives:
