I cannot improve on the short and sweet explanation my friend Jennifer wrote about the demise of Google Reader on her blog Eightymillion. I encourage you to make good use of Jennifer’s research.

I chose ‘Bloglovin’. They offer a lot of Follow buttons, and it was easy to migrate all the blogs I now follow and was in risk of losing due to the demise of Google Reader. Go ahead, scroll down the left side of this blog and click it or click Follow my blog with Bloglovin
Whatever you decide to do, do it sooner rather than later. Those who wait will be left in Googledust!
