Quick Reminder for Google Reader Users

Google Reader shutting down, what to do
Anyone else procrastinating about the demise of Google Reader? Here's what to do.

If you use Google Reader to follow A Veggie Venture and/or Kitchen Parade and all your other favorite blogs, you already know that as of July 1, Google is pitching Google Reader into the compost pile. And if you’re like me, you’ve been procrastinating finding a replacement, hoping against hope that Google would change its mind. Nope …

So here’s what to do. Me, I’m doing all three.

STICK WITH AN RSS READER Go to either Feedly or Bloglovin quick-quick -- that means, today. Either free service will import your blog RSS subscriptions from Google Reader with a couple of clicks, this will preserve your existing subscriptions, otherwise, g'bye, gone forever. I’m kinda keen on Feedly, myself.

SWITCH TO EMAIL For the blogs we care about the most, email subscriptions are best. Click here to subscribe to A Veggie Venture, click here to subscribe to Kitchen Parade. If you already receive emails from Kitchen Parade and/or A Veggie Venture, you’re already set, no need to do a thing!

UPDATE YOUR FACEBOOK SETTINGS New settings will override Facebook's default settings which deliver only about “one out of ten” updates, the ones Facebook in all its wisdom thinks you want to see. FYI, these steps work for all Facebook pages, not just mine.

1) First, “Like” A Veggie Venture on Facebook, just click here.
2) Then “hover” your cursor over the “like” button, you’ll see a dropdown box with a few options.
3) Make sure that “show in newsfeed” is checked.
4) Most important, check the Settings button, then select “all updates”.
5) Repeat the process for Kitchen Parade, just click here.

That's it, look for new recipes later this week!

A Veggie Venture is home of 'veggie evangelist' Alanna Kellogg and the
famous asparagus-to-zucchini Alphabet of Vegetables.

I switched over to Feedly a couple of weeks ago (and like it), but I'm still waiting for the Windows phone app :-)

Visiting from Chaya's meatless Monday. I switched over to Bloglovin and Google + in anticipation of GFC saying Goodbye.. Yet, it's July 7 and I noticed my reader for GFC is still working!! Does anyone know if they decided to stay??

Thank you for taking a moment to write! I read each and every comment, for each and every recipe, whether a current recipe or a long-ago favorite. If you have a specific question, it's nearly always answered quick-quick. ~ Alanna
