What To Do Without Google Reader?
I love reading my favorite personal finance blogs and other great websites like the Dividend Ninja, Money Q&A, and others, and I don’t want to miss anything when Google Reader shuts down. So, what do you do now?
Find A New RSS Reader Fast!
Here are a few good alternative RSS Readers that you should consider trying out. I’ve heard some great things and just started using Feedly to follow the blogs I want to keep up with.
- Feedly – Thought to be the best alternative to Google Reader because of its speed, minimalist style, and the fact that it is FREE!! There is talk of them working on a “Pro” version that could keep them from suffering the same fate as the Google Reader.
- NewsBlur – Costs $2 per month. In the past, they used to offer a free account and may decide to do that again in the future. But, for not, $2 per month isn’t too bad.
- Netvibes – This RSS reader service has been around for a long time, but they have been focused on expensive social analytics. Although, they recently relaunched free accounts too.
