WFMW: Google Reader Alternative


I don’t like change. Not a bit. I also don’t like to upgrade or fix things that aren’t broken. Makes being a blogger tricky with all the technology and whatnot.

Anyway, The Google has decided to shut down its Reader and that’s a bummer since I use it every single day. You might too. So, I thought Feedly was a good alternative (and easy since I just put in my Google account info) and it pulled up my list of blogs and sites I already subscribe too. This little post explains more about how Feedly works. I really like how it’s more visual than Google Reader.

If you subscribe to my blog via a RSS subscriber, you’ll want to try it too. Or you can have posts delivered painlessly right into your inbox by submitting your email at the end of this post. PLUS, every month I will be giving away a lovely item from The Vintage Pearl to a random subscriber. I’m nice like that.

So, while change doesn’t work for me, new things do.

*Completely random side note: The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name
(best Bible ever) is only $1.99 for Kindle at Amazon. Perfect for family reading, especially these weeks before Easter!

    I am glad to hear you recommend it. I have heard suggestions but no one has really recommended anything that’s worked for them. I need to switch soon! Thanks for hosting today.

    Hi Kristen, happy to meet you and your family!
    This is my first time here, tx for the party
    I don’t like changes too… I agree: if it’s not broken don’t fix it :)
    I use bloglovin’ too: simple and customable, for me it’s not bad (and I’m following you with it!)
    I hope you like my summer sewing for my little girl, all made for FREE (free pattern/self drafted, fabrics/buttons from old clothes).

    The Jesus Storybook Bible is awesome! I LOVE giving it to adults who have trouble “understanding their bible”.

    Thank you for posting this Kristen! I was not very happy with Google when they made that announcement. I plugged all my feeds into My Yahoo but I really don’t like it. I miss my Google Reader already! I will try Feedly :)

    I just got the msg from google when I opened my reader last week to catch up on blogs. But they didn’t say why.

    So I searched “feed readers” in my App Store & decided on Feedly and so far I really like it! Easy to use & it’s on my iPhone so I can catch up on my blog reading much easier now.

    PS–reading & commenting via Feedly on my phone right now! 😉

    I just a few minutes ago downloaded Feedly — so far so good — takes a little getting used to, but I think I can adapt

    I am SO glad you wrote about Feedly. When I found out Google reader was shutting down, I did not know what to do about the blogs I follow (and smart me didn’t think to check the internet). Thank you!!

    That is very attention-grabbing, You’re an excessively skilled blogger.
    I’ve joined your rss feed and look forward to seeking more of your fantastic post.
    Also, I’ve shared your site in my social networks

    I think this is among the most significant info for me.
    And i am glad reading your article. But should remark on few general things, The website style is perfect, the articles is really nice : D.
    Good job, cheers

    certainly like your website but you need to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very troublesome to tell the reality
    however I will definitely come again again.

  17. 30


    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of
    your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text
    for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could
    space it out better?

    I am really loving the theme/design of your web site.

    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems?

    A small number of my blog audience have complained about my blog
    not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.
    Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?

  19. 32


    I’ll right away seize your rss as I can not find your e-mail subscription hyperlink
    or newsletter service. Do you’ve any? Kindly let me understand in order that I may subscribe.

    Howdy! I know this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does running a well-established blog such as yours require a lot of
    work? I am completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary daily.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and thoughts
    online. Please let me know if you have any ideas
    or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
    Appreciate it!
