A Guide For Replacing GFC with Bloglovin'

Google Reader will soon be but a distant memory.  I don't mind change but it's irritating when the fear of losing readers or numbers comes in to play.  Any ole' how, here's how to transfer the blogs you read over to Bloglovin': 

Set up a Bloglovin' account: If you don't have a Bloglovin' account, you can get one on the Bloglovin' site. During the process it will ask if you want to import the blogs you read on Google Reader to Bloglovin'. Click on the button to import.  It's that simple!

If you already have a Bloglovin' account, then here's the deets:

1. Log in to Bloglovin' and click on your profile picture.

2. On your profile page, click Edit your profile. This will take you to your account settings, notifications, etc.

3. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on Import blogs. Doing this will take you to a page that gives you two options. Click on Google Reader and follow the prompts.

4. The import literally takes a few seconds (or even minutes) to work. Once the import is complete, it will take you back to your Bloglovin' homepage where you can view all the recent posts from your favorite bloggers.

Dang, this whole thing sucks! I'm posting on my blog too, and hopefully we can get the word out to our readers.

I can't believe Google is doing this to us!
