It bugs me when things I like are taken away without much thought of consequences.
Well, like much of blogdom I've switched over to Bloglovin.
<a href="http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/3537591/?claim=ebhpsnj87ze">Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>
Follow my little blog too. If you haven't switched, I think you will enjoy the ease of Bloglovin. Yes, it is different than Goggle reader-but after a day or two you'll enjoy Bloglovin a bit more.
