Rest in Peace Google Reader.


 If you haven't heard yet, Google is killing off our beloved Google Reader and Google Friend Connect. Let's take that in for a minute....WHATTT!? I'm going to be honest and say that until yesterday Google Reader was the only way I kept up with blogs. Bloglovin', while it is great, is not on my dashboard. I'm too busy to go to a million different websites and apps to catch up on my favorite blogs. In reality this is Google sick way of forcing us to accept and like Google Plus, STOP TRYING TO MAKE FETCH HAPPEN!  If you're a little freaked out like I was last night take a deep breath and listen to this. Are you ready?
Everything is going to be fine.
The amazing world of the interweb has many solutions! If you are worried that you'll miss out on following all the blogs you love you can hop on over to said Bloglovin' and start adding all your favorite blogs there. There is also this super easy solution called Feedly, it lets you automatically transfer your Google Reader feed to the app, then you can keep up on all your favorites that way. Sounds like you're covered there. There is also a petition that you can sign to try and keep Google Reader around, that's worth a shot ey?
I hope that you all transition easily and I hope that I won't lose touch with you all, I have some pretty wonderful friends and readers! Thanks for sticking around!
