Many of you may know that Google Reader is shutting down on July 1st (that’s on Monday!) so it’s time to find alternatives to keep getting your content.
I use Google Reader daily to read all the articles I find interesting, inlcuding about 150 personal finance blogs. Having a place to aggregate all that content is really important to me so having Google shut down Google Reader is a big disappointment.
If you don’t currently get blog updates and just check the site whenever you remember, there are a few very easy ways you can stay up to date.
Best Alternatives to Google Reader
When Google Reader is gone, I’m simply going to change where I read all those articles. The best alternative I’ve found so far is Feedly. It imports all your Google Reader subscriptions automatically (but make sure to do it in the next few days!) and is very easy to use. I highly recommend checking it out!
Get Posts Delivered To Your Inbox
Another alternative is to sign up for my email subscription, which automatically sends each new post to your inbox. You get a nice email from me a couple times a week and you can read it whenever you have time. I never spam and this only signs you up for my RSS posts. No other emails and even if I had someone to sell your email address to, I wouldn’t do it.
For your convenience, here’s an email subscription box for you:
Take Action Now Or Get Left Behind!
Whichever option your prefer, make sure you take action today! There’s no more putting this off because Google Reader will be gone by the time I post my next post on Monday.
