Sigh. Bye Bye Google Reader

I'm not an "early adopter." I put off switching from Google Reader to Bloglovin' as long as I could. One of my very first posts was "how to follow this blog via Google Reader." Losing Google Reader is like losing an old friend!

But now I have no choice. Tomorrow, Google Reader bites the dust. 

I've transferred all the blogs I follow to Bloglovin'. If you prefer a reader-type format to following blogs via email, (or if you never got around to following 52 Quilts!) here is how to transfer your own favorites to Bloglovin':

Go to Your screen will look like this:

setting up an account with bloglovin
Oh, look at that, a big, blue “join” button! Just what you were looking for. Click on it.
setting up an account with bloglovin
You can choose to set up an account with Facebook or by email. I chose email.
The next screen will look like this:

setting up an account with bloglovin
You will receive a verification email at the email address you provided. Click on the link in that email. I got my email immediately!
setting up an account with bloglovin
All of those blogs you follow with Google Reader? You can transfer them over to Bloglovin’ with the touch of a button! Click on “Import from Google Reader.”
setting up an account with bloglovin
You will need to give Bloglovin’ permission to access your blogs and move them over from Google. Click “Accept” and you’re all done and ready to start reading your favorite blogs with Bloglovin’!

While you're at it, why not click on that link in the right-hand column that reads "52 Quilts Facebook?" I often post photos of finished projects there before they hit the blog! Sadly, the Younger Son and blog co-author is incommunicado, so I can't ask him to update the "Subscribe" button until his summer deployment is over.

Here is the Bloglovin' link to 52 Quilts in 52 Weeks:

Because I'm lazy, I stole these directions from "not your momma's cookie."  (You should totally look at her "Game of Thrones" themed desserts!)  Thanks for making it easy for me, Jennifer!

Thanks for taking your time to comment. If I don't answer in an email, it's because you're a no-reply commenter and I can't find you!
