A note to readers using Google Reader

As you probably know by now, Google Reader is shutting shop tomorrow — July 1. If you use it in order to read blogs — and my stats tell me that several hundred of you do — you’ll need to export your feeds in order to continue reading them somewhere else.

I don’t have a perfect substitute for Google Reader (I don’t think anyone does) but some suggestions I’ve seen include Netvibes, Feedly and The Old Reader.

To export your feeds from Google Reader, go to settings –> import/export –> download your data through takeout. This will create a file you can upload at your new reader site of choice.

In addition, you can always follow my blog via e-mail, Facebook and Twitter.

Hope to keep seeing you after July 1!
