You already know that Google reader is leaving us on July 1st, but you might not have known that Google Friend Connect is going with it. There will no longer be that friendly "follow" button with everyone's happy faces on our sidebars.
It sucks, but it isn't the only way for people to follow your blog.
A lot of people were talking about feedly, but I didn't find it that user friendly, so I've been using bloglovin' instead. It's easy to use and it's easy to put a follow button in your side bar.
The switch is less than three weeks away, so be ready! Go here to find out how to import your google reader to bloglovin' and here to get a button for your sidebar. Happy blog reading!
