If you are a Google Reader user then you know that this handy tool is going to expire within a few short months. Many users are scrambling for alternatives. Bloglovin provides this similar service allowing you to organize and categorize sites that you follow. I have been a member of bloglovin for a while now and have been adding to it little by little.
I am also a Google Reader user but wasn’t sure what to do with all of the blogs that I was already following. All I needed to do was import them to my Bloglovin account in three easy clicks! Yes it’s really that simple.
When I began this import I was already logged into my gmail account which is connected to Google Reader. I opened my bloglovin account in a separate tab in my browser and opened my settings. Under setting look for the import blogs button in the Other section as you see below. Here is the import shown in 3 clicks!
The image below is to show you what the import looks like when it’s complete. There are 252 blogs to import and 220 of them went into the blogger-following folder that was created by the import.
Because the number of of blogs that were imported had a lower number in the folder I went back to check in Google Reader to see if they all made it to bloglovin. The blogs that were still live were imported. Many of the bloggers that I had been following have left blogging. Cheaper than Therapy was authored by The Mom Jen and when I checked the import it found that she changed the name of her blog to Musings of The Mom Jen! How handy is that? What an easy solution.
