I have been hearing rumours for a few months now that Google Reader is going. It is really true? I have been trying to find out.
There have been lots of different stories, some saying it was all rumours with no fact, but a lot more saying that it really is happening. Indeed, I have found that the Google Friend Connect is no longer available, and on more than one occasion my blog list of blogs I read has been empty (they did come back).
It would seem though that it is TRUE as I found this on the Google Reader Blog. The general view is that it is to encourage everyone to move across to Google+. I am on G+, but not everyone that I am following is, so this is far from ideal for me.
In the end, but without a great deal of research into the other options I must admit, I decided to use Bloglovin'. At the moment I am using both, and it is easy to import your whole blog list from blogger. I am liking it much better as it turns out. There are lots more options though if you want to take a look around.
Good luck with your decision, meanwhile if you want to follow me on Bloglovin here I am!
Update - I now use Feedly
