I STILL don't understand why this is going away.
But I noticed my readership is down today….on the day it went away.
I THINK NOT.
I like Bloglovin' so far! Hey, what ever happened to that house you decorated for Parade of Homes? Was it for PoH? I remember you giving us sneak peeks here and there long ago. Did I miss the grand finale post?
I've been loving feedly reader for sometime now. I love how it lets me view it in different formats and organize my blogs by topics! Ready for all the hub but to be over.
I'm loving Feedly. It is connected in some way to Google Reader so all my blogs were already there when I logged in with my google username and password. I wrote a review of it on my blog ( ourlifeindesign.blogspot.com/2013/03/google-readers-going-bye-bye.html) awhile back and love the preview option. You are able to view and comment on your favorite blogs in full without have to click out of Feedly – fantastic for truncated posts.
So which one do like better and are you using? I'm one of those people that have never used Google Reader but probably should have since there are so many blogs I try to keep up with!!
But apparently NONE of them offer a 'next' option, which is what I always used. 🙁 You could install the 'next' button on your toolbar, and just hit it and it would take you to the next blog on your list.
I'm really going to miss that. 🙁
I switched over to Feedly a few weeks ago and I like it so far. I might try Digg though just to compare.
As sad as I am to see Google Reader go, it was a smart business move. DIGG Reader is only a couple days old and since DIGG has a lot of bad history, I dunno if I'd trust it with my precious RSS feed. Especially if you want drama-free technology. I'd recommend The Old Reader. I've loved using it!

i've always used bloglovin' exclusively, so i don't know any different i guess! glad i'm not having to deal with the "drama" of it all. 🙂 thanks for sharing, though, i'll have to check out digg too!
I really like Feedly and it is just as easy to move everything over. I like the magazine layout…lots of pretty pictures!
