Google Reader Followers - How to Stay Connected with We Were Raised By Wolves

Sunday, 30 June 2013

As many of you will already know, Google Reader is due to shut down tomorrow (1st July 2013), which means that you'll need to join an alternative blog reader if Google is your main one.  Not to worry though because there are lots of exciting alternatives you can use!  So if you follow We Were Raised By Wolves via Google Reader and want to stay connected (and I hope you do!), then have a look at the following:-

Bloglovin'
One of the easiest ways is to join Bloglovin' which is proving to be the most popular alternative to Google Reader.  You can export your entire Google Reader blog list to Bloglovin' so you don't lose anyone.  Easy!

Twitter
I tweet direct links to all of my new posts over on Twitter.

She Said Beauty
Fellow beauty junkies unite over on She Said Beauty, which has a great feed for all of your favourite beauty blogs.  
Follow on She Said Beauty here.

Amazine 
Still relatively new, but one with a cool 'clip it' magazine style user face, Amazine is a good option for those wanting something a little different.  
Follow on Amazine here.

Pinterest
I have a We Were Raised By Wolves blog board on Pinterest which you can follow here.

Email
If you prefer to receive updates about new posts via email, simply submit your email address in the box in the right hand column over there and you'll get them in the your inbox. 

I may also be setting up a Facebook and Instagram for blog related things - would you be interested in following We Were Raised By Wolves on those platforms?  And if you have any questions about any of the above etc, just leave a comment or email/tweet me :)

P.S: Those who follow via GFC (Google Friend Connect) may also want to change to one of the methods above as Google takes its steps to try and force everyone to use its Google+ services instead.  IIRC, GFC will still be with us, but for how long, no-one seems to know as yet!

  1. I just heard a blogger saying that Google Reader is going down, but that's not the same with GFC. Honestly i'm not acquainted with this matter, so i'm not sure about this messy change.

    Either way, already following you on Bloglovin, hope you follow me back :)

    1. Thanks Kate! I got my wording a bit mixed up sorry, so I've edited the post to clarify what I received in my Google email this morning :)

      As far as I know, GFC will still be with us as it's linked with Blogger, but some are concerned that it will be phased out shortly due to Google putting pressure on everyone to use Google+ instead. Only time will tell I guess! x

    2. Ah, well thanks for clearing it up, I was confused about all of this :)

    3. It's a confusing topic don't worry - I think the main problem is because Google haven't cofirmed a lot of details, only that their Reader is definitely shutting down tomorrow. The rest is just speculation at this point :) x
