Bye Bye Google Reader, Take Action to Save Your Reading List

Google is retiring Google Reader tomorrow!  That means if you've been following blogs such as mine on by hitting the 'join this site' button, you will lose your reading list of these blogs.

I have just added a Bloglovin button to my site as an alternative. (See it over there on the right, under my Etsy mini, lookin' like this:)
 In fact, you can import all the blogs you follow from Google Reader to bloglovin super easily and it only takes a minute. I'm not sure if this will be a possibility once Google Reader is retired tomorrow, so best do it straight away. It really does only take a minute. Otherwise you might never find your favourite blogs again :-(  Just hit the button and sign up then follow the simple instructions to transfer all your favourite blogs across.

You can of course, still follow my blog by email should you wish or by the RSS feed button (both also found on the right hand column of my blog.  I also tweet my posts so find me here @handmadebyAMOR
However, it's not all about me and if you want to keep all your fave blogs best import them all over via bloglovin or alternatives such as But hurry before midnight or we all turn into pumpkins!
As a by the way, if you love handcraft, Esty and reading blogs, here is a thread from the Etsy Ireland Team with lots of blogs to dip into:


  1. Yep, I was scrambling around yesterday trying to get this finish and still forgot the button, thanks for the reminder :)

    But I do no think everyone realizes it is going to happen TOMORROW :(

    Silly Google :(

    Hope you had a lovely Sunday, cheers, T. :)

    1. maybe if everyone who Does read this would tweet it and g+ it it would get the word out...we've been hearing about this for months, but didnt really understand the implications....

  2. I'm trying to imagine myself as a pumpkin! You are so funny! :D
