How to move your Google Reader feed to BlogLovin

Google Reader is shutting down on July 1, 2013. If you are following the Skimbaco Lifestyle feed via Google Reader it’s about time to think of an alternative way to stay in touch.

I personally have been using BlogLovin for the blogs I read for a few years.


BlogLovin let’s you categorize the blogs you read and it’s easy to mark off the posts you are not interested in and you can also like the posts you did read and like. I would love if you followed Skimbaco Lifestyle on BlogLovin and saw it yourself how easy it is to use. I am not a tech-savvy person, and I like how easy it is to use BlogLovin and see the headlines and only click to the posts you want to read or you can use the handy top bar like in the picture below to click through all of the latest posts from your favorite blogs. Only bad about using the top bar is that you can not pin any images to Pinterest when using it and you need to remove the bar before pinning any images.


You can also easily move your Google Reader feed to BlogLovin. Create an account first, and then go to Settings, scroll down the page and click “Import Blogs”, choose “Google Reader” and start moving your blog feeds to BlogLovin.
