Well friends, it seems like the blogging world is coming to an end (!) because Google Reader will shut down on July 1. Almost every day I see someone excitedly post that they have moved to Blog Reader X, Y, or Z now that Google Reader is ending.
So, my questions for you lovely ladies is, one, is this (image below,) Google Reader? This is what I've always used to read my blogs, but I've read many women say that they have 300 posts in their "to-read," or they've just marked all posts as "read" after coming home from vacation. Obviously my system doesn't have that option which makes me think I never used Google Reader in the first place.
My second question is, what are you ladies switching over to? I've heard a lot of talk about BlogLovin' and I looked at it briefly, but it looks a lot like Pintrest to me (at least the home page does,) and I don't know how I feel about that. I'm one of those people who hates change, so having to pick out a new blog reader is going to be a pain in the butt for me. Your advice and hand holding through this process would be very much appreciated.
*Edit:* I finally bit the bullet and joined BlogLovin'. Feedly was also suggested, but I use Opera as my internet browser, and I don't think that Feedly and Opera are compatible, but I only looked for a brief time. I've also added a "follow me by email" section on the right side of my blog in case that's more your style. I'll also try and be better about adding my new posts to Facebook in case you follow me on there. Thank you everyone for your help!
