The Big Move - Goodbye Google Reader!

Hi Guys,

One thing you may have been hearing about recently is that Google Reader was retired on the 1st of July. Now, I'm not 100% sure what Google Reader is/was, as nothing seems to have changed on my Blogger page, but it's probably something totally different!

Anyway, if you would still like to follow me, then Bloglovin is the new place to be!

So if you're over there, click the link on the top right of this page, follow the link through to Bloglovin and click on the blue "follow" button.



If you don't know how to carry over your Google Reader list, then here are a few quick steps, it's very simple...

Create an archive of your reader. You do this on Google Takeout which you can find at www.google.com/takeout. Select Choose Services and you should see a page like this...


Click on Reader. Your page should look like this

Click Create Archive and your page should look like this... Click Download to get your whole Reader archive.



Next go onto Bloglovin. From the dropdown menu at the top of the home page, select Import from Google Reader.


In the archive folder, there will be a file called subscriptions.xml and that is the file you need. Click Choose File, select subscriptions.xml from the Takeout archive and attach it and press Upload.



Voila, all done! Now you are following all of your Google Reader subscriptions via Bloglovin, now wasn't that easy!

Don't forget, click the little button at the top of the right column to follow me!
