Find me on Bloglovin'!

Hello lovely readers!  I'm totally behind the times, but just realized that things are getting switched up a bit around here.  Google Reader will be on it's way out in a couple of weeks.  If you follow this blog or any others with Google Reader, it is likely that you will be unable to access that same way in the near future.  Luckily. Blogloving makes it easy for you to transfer your blogs and read your blogs on their site.  I use Bloglovin' and I love it!  

1.  Set up an account:  If you don't have a Bloglovin' account you can get one right HERE.  During the set up it will ask you if you want to import the blogs you read on Google Reader to Bloglovin--click on the button and then that is it!  You can simply log in to read them, or request to be sent email updates when your favorite blog is updated.

If you already have a Bloglovin' account here's what to do:
1. Log in to Bloglovin' and click on your profile picture.

3. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on Import blogs. Doing this will take you to a page that gives you 2 options. Click on Google Reader and follow the prompts.

4. The import literally takes a few seconds to work. Once the import is complete, it will take you back to your Bloglovin' homepage where you can view all the recent posts from your favorite bloggers.

It's possible with the close of Google Reader that Google Friend Connect may follow. To avoid any complications in the future, I've been following blogs directly on Bloglovin' by clicking on the follow link when I'm reading new posts. The follow link usually looks like a + or a heart. 

Let me know if you need any help and I hope to see you all on Bloglovin'! :)
