Google Reader is going to be gone and I am not familiar with the options. Does anyone else keep their blog list on a reader? Thanks!

Dumb question, but what's a reader? You mean a kindle, Nook or tablet?

Hi Mamaspoon,

Google reader is a place where you can register all the blogs you read. Then, instead of checking each blog you just open the reader and they are all listed there whether they have new posts or not. Probably not necessary unless you follow alot of blogs which I do. I can't imagine opening all my favorite blogs every day.
I have gotten lazy! Smile

THANKS Gracie, I went over to your link, chose feedly reader, easy to follow. I am already transferred over in less than 3 minutes!
I like the format better, more like a magazine and more options for sharing!
Smile

Glad the information was helpful. I still have the few blogs I follow showing up in Email. Sometimes I open them, but mostly they get deleted without reading. I don't know why, but I just can't get into following blogs.

Gracie,

I follow several. I like having a reader so I can either delete posts or save them for later.

I used to check each one every day and then find out that some weren't updated so this saves alot of time.
