On Wednesday, it was announced that Google Reader will be shutting down for good on July 1st. This was sad news for blog readers, as well as for bloggers who have spent years building their readership via GR. Many of you use Google Reader to follow Bubby and Bean, and I'd hate to lose you guys once their service stops in a few months.
Thankfully, there are a couple of really great alternatives that will allow you to continue to read your favorite blogs in one place. I personally am a huge fan and everyday user of Bloglovin', and would encourage you to follow us there. I also recommend Feedly. Just login using your Google account, and they will automatically sync your Google Reader account there. Easy as pie.
I am really, really grateful for those of you who you have chosen to subscribe to Bubby and Bean (and to all of my readers!), and I hope you'll stay with us! If you have any questions about making the transition to a new reader, let me know and I'll do my best to answer.
