Well, for as long as I tried to deny it would actually happen- Google Reader really is going away. In fact, after this weekend, it’s gone for good! There are tons of blog posts out there offering suggestions for replacement RSS Readers, and after trying out a couple options I’ve narrowed it down to two I like. I thought I’d just offer up my opinion of both Feedly and Bloglovin.
So here are a couple observations about each of these services:
Ease of Setup
Both Feedly and Bloglovin make it super easy to import all of your feeds from Google Reader with just one click of a button. If you’re a Reader user anyway, this is a huge plus! However, I did notice that when I did this, Feedly kept the blogs that I had in different folders or labels separate while I’m having to put all my blogs into categories again on Bloglovin.

|Bloglovin Screen Capture|
|Feedly #education search|
|Bloglovin #education search|
So, those are a couple of the things I looked for when deciding on a replacement for Google Reader. For me, Bloglovin wins for now. (And it should be noted that their app is pretty awesome too!) You can follow this blog on Bloglovin using the link at the top of the post!
What are you using to replace Google Reader?
