Transitioning from Google Reader ~ How to Feed Your Savoring Habit

My Kitchen

A little housekeeping is important to every home and blog. Keeping things tidy so everyone can make it to the table (blog post) without having to navigate too many distractions, or heaven forbid, miss it all together.

And there is nothing more important than those we invite to join us at our Savoring table.

That’s you, the invitee, the reader.

Although a small number of Savoring Today readers use RSS to follow posts, every reader is important to us. If you’re used to seeing updates through Google Reader, you’re probably aware that particular feed is coming to an end on July 1st. You are too important to us to lose that connection; we hope Savoring Today is important to you to keep a connection.

Here’s just a few ways to continue see every post, recipe, and update:

1. Subscribe by email. We don’t post every day, so you don’t have to worry about us clogging up your inbox. Simply Subscribe to Savoring Today by Email —your email address is not shared or used for any other purpose than delivering updates or information about Savoring Today. You’ll receive an email to confirm your subscription and you’re done—won’t miss a thing.

2. Another RSS-type reader—here’s a link to 12 Google Reader Alternatives.

3. Connect with us on Facebook or Twitter. While email and RSS readers are great for receiving the most recent posts, there is more real time interaction on Facebook and Twitter with highlights of archived recipes as well. We’d love it if you’d connect with us there too.

4. Pinterestis just plain fun! You’ll find a way to Savoring Today’s posts through my boards, but you’ll also find recipes I collect from other great food bloggers —Bonus!

Such is the nature of the on-line world ~ change and new opportunities.

Let’s stay connected!

    This is a timely post, Judy. Earlier this morning I read an article about Google’s reader going away. Luckily, we all have a few months to make other arrangement, so, the change won’t be disastrous. Thanks for being among the first to sound the alarm.

    Great post. I can’t believe Google Reader is going away. Boo Hiss! But I much prefer to subscribe to blogs through email, anyway, so I’m covered there. ;-) Thanks for all the info.

    You can also do an online petition to revive Google reader here as of now there are 100000+ who petitioned.

    Also if that dont work Digg say they will recreate the same thing, so anything that Google Reader have will be featured in the new product

    Not happy about the Google Reader thing, as I follow everyone via it. However I know there are options out there and thanks for a few more Judy.

    I followed 99% of my favourite blogs via google reader… it’s quite annoying to see it retire. I start using bloglovin to get the updates these days….
