Goodbye Google Reader

It's been days since I logged into Blogger, and today I was really sad to learn that Google Reader is leaving on 1st July. Google has stated that "There are two simple reasons for this: usage of Google Reader has declined, and as a company we are pouring all of our energy into fewer products." This is such an inconvenience for those who follow and read blogs via Google Reader or GFC (which I think will shut down soon too).

I personally am not a big fan of Google Plus or "circle" thing, whatever it is. So what I suggest is import your Google Reader data to Bloglovin' or Feedly, which both have great layouts. You can also access to them on your phone by downloading their apps. It's very easy to transport, as you go to the two websites, a notice about Google Reader retirement will pop up and you can import the blogs you follow.

We are all aware that petitions don't really work things out. But it'd still be great to at least try get Google continue running the service. Please take time and sign this petition.

If you'd like to continue following my blog, "add", "follow" or "circle" (I am still not quite sure how Google+ works...) me on Google+, where I always share my blog posts, or follow me on Bloglovin', or add me on Feedly.

See you there! :)
