The End is Nigh for Google Reader

With Google Reader being retired July 1, 2013, I have been testing some alternatives. So far the winner seems to be Feedly http://www.feedly.com . 

*I did find an easier way to add blogs to the Feedly reader. It is a bookmarklet that you can just drop to your bookmarks/favorites bar. It can be found here http://www.labnol.org/software/rss-extensions-bookmarklets/27929/ .

After adding this bookmarklet, I can just navigate to a blog and click the button. So far it's working well.
***Update on above. See

Finally, There is a widget that can be added to your blog so readers can add your blog to their Feedly Reader http://www.feedly.com/factory.html :

Cick on the button you want for your blog.
If you don't see the design you need create your own using our button kit.
