The End is Nigh

how to move your google reader / a thousand threads
Just a few more days! Have you started the move?

I have to admit that I’ve been pleasantly surprised by Feedly, but there are lots of great options out there — including Bloglovin’, of course, along with an upcoming reader from Digg that promises to be pretty great.

And because of the mass exodus, nearly all of these services have made it crazy easy to move. For instructions on moving to Bloglovin’, click here. And for Feedly it’s as easy as signing in. They do all of the work for you.

So if you’re still holding out (I know a few of you are) don’t be scared to take the leap. You can even try a few and see which one you like best.

And while you’re at it (because what would this post be without a little shameless self-promotion?) you can add A Thousand Threads to your list!

    I never used Google reader (gasp! What?) but all this talk about it going away intrigued me, so I started using theoldreader.com. It’s been great and has made my morning routine about 1,000 times easier. No more worrying about forgetting to visit a blog or missing an important (ok, probably not important, but interesting) post!

      I’ve heard great things about The Old Reader!! Do you love it? I’m really loving the visual look of Feedly right now, but a lot of people are excited for Digg’s new reader, so I’ll have to check that one out too. I don’t think I’ve quite found my new forever-home haha, but there are so many good options. šŸ™‚

    I never actually used Google Reader either, but since they announced its end, I’ve been experimenting with Bloglovin’. I can’t believe I’d been foolishly clicking through bookmarks for so many years!

      I did it for a long time too!! It’s amazing what a difference a reader can make though — I’m so much quicker now!

    While I always loved Google Reader, I definitely craved a more visually appealing format. When the end of Google Reader was announced, I quickly found Feedly and have been using it for three months now. I LOVE LOVE it so much, it is just so easy to use, the saved function is great.

      Oh no! So glad you love the blog!! I’m sorry you’re having trouble… if you enter http://feeds.feedburner.com/1000threadsblog/feed into Feedly’s search function then you can add the blog manually. Let me know if you have any more trouble (your work is beautiful btw!).
