Were you as surprised and bummed out as I when you heard the news that Google Reader was going the way of the buggy whip?
Google Reader had woven its way into my life and become as important as my morning coffee [almost!].
I am a professional procrastinator by nature, but decided I didn't want to wait until Google Reader goes goes dark on July 1st, so I scrambled to research alternatives.
After looking at a few RSS readers, I decided to go with feedly and I am very glad I did. Fortunately, the kind--and brilliant--geniuses at feedly saw the Google Reader thing coming and prepared to lessen the pain for people like me. They are even adding bandwidth and new servers to accommodate the Google immigrants.
The process of converting my Google Reader setup to feedly for Chrome and feedly for Android could not have been more simple. I didn't think to count clicks, but it couldn't have taken more than two or three to set up feedly and import all my content and settings from Google Reader.
In addition to Chrome and Android, feedly also has versions for iOS, Firefox, and Safari. I am certain the transition will be just as easy for all systems.
Feedly did all the work and imported everything I had in Google Reader directly to my new feedly platform automatically.
