Hey everyone! I’m nothing if not a procrastinator. As you may have heard, Google Reader is set to go retire as of July 1st. Google Reader was my favorite way to read all the blogs I love in one place, and I’m sad to see it go. As a blog writer, it worries me to lose the connections I’ve made with so many of you! There’s an easy solution, however– as much as I don’t like change, there’s a great new format for reading blogs called Bloglovin’ and switching over could not be easier. It just took me until the very last moment to do it, HA!
If you read Making Lemonade on Google Reader, I’d be honored if you’d add me on Bloglovin’ as well. If you use a different reader for your blogs, think about checking out Bloglovin’… it’s free and easy, you might even prefer it. Of course, if you get Making Lemonade delivered to your inbox via email, then you’re all set. No need to change anything. If you’d like to get it delivered via email each time there’s a new post, you can sign up for an email subscription right here.
Not sure how to join Bloglovin’ or switch over? Here’s a quick tutorial for you! It’s actually super duper easy, but if you’re anything like me it’s helpful to have a guide or at least know what you’re getting into. Here are the very easy steps for importing all your favorite blogs from Google Reader to Bloglovin:
Now that you’ve signed up and imported your blogs, please take a moment to add Making Lemonade to your list if you haven’t already! You can sign up to do that via this link, or add me from your Bloglovin’ page– just search for Making Lemonade and be sure to follow the right one (this screenshot shows my old blog design, I believe it’s fixed now so just look for the Making Lemonade at the top):
The clock is ticking in terms of switching; you still have a few more days, but it’s possible you won’t be able to import blogs from Google Reader after July 1st (don’t hold me to that, but that’s the thinking thus far…) So perhaps take a moment to do that right now, otherwise you’ll have to start from scratch. And truly, it takes just a minute or two to switch! I’m the world’s worst procrastinator so if I’ve done it you know it’s time.
Words can’t describe how much your support means. Suffice it to say, it’s everything to me. Thanks for following on along this wild and wonderful journey, and allowing me to share some fun ideas along the way. Got questions? Feel free to ask in the comments and I’ll do my best to help out!
