Maybe you already knew this, I ignored it as long as I could, but when I heard blog reader was going away in July and it was now June, I thought it was time to check it out.
It just did not make sense to me that Google Friends Connect was staying, but Google reader was going away...Lets think about this, why would you have a button to connect and read a blog and then no way to read the blog you connected to....I just knew something wasn't right! So, I spent an evening trying to figuring this out. Here is what I discovered
Blog reader is going away, not Blogger reading list. So, whats the difference?
Blog reader is an RSS feed (Don't ask me what that is), just know it is a way some people follow blogs.
Blogger reading list is the blog roll in our dashboard, I think it is how most of us follow the blogs that we have connected to with Google friends connect. This is not going away!
I found this information from many sources, but the best explanation was from Nathan, if you would like to read more.
So there you go, nothing is going to change for most of us. Will it in the future, maybe, but I'm not going to spend my time worrying about what might happen. I know I could use Bloglovin, Google +, Linky, etc. etc. I will cross that bridge when I have to, or maybe I won't. I blog because it's fun, but if it gets to complicated I might rethink how much fun it is.
So, in the words of Scarlett O' Hara......"I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tomorrow"
