Google Reader expires on July 1st, which means if you use it to collate and read RSS feeds, it’s time to settle on an alternative. The CBC recently ran a comparison of their top choices: Feedly, NewsBlur, The Old Reader, AOL Reader and Digg Reader.
Among my friends and the tech blogs I’ve been reading, Feedly seems to be the clear front-runner. If you’re not familiar with it yet, don’t panic. Amit Agarwal (@labnol) has a helpful article on Digital Inspiration which can walk you through transfer and minor customization. (I’m no tech guru, but he is and if you’d like regular updates on blog-related technology, I recommend signing up for his newsletter.)
I’m going to see if I can customize my blog’s buttons to reflect the new choices and keep it all looking purty.
In the meantime, if you’d like to subscribe to Tartitude through RSS reader, or simply keep your old subscription going, click the button below and look for the green button at the top labelled “+add to my feedly.”
If you’re getting delivery through email or WordPress, no need to change a thing.
