2 Awesome Alternatives to Reading Makeup and Beauty Blog on Google Reader (BTW, Google Reader Goes Dark on July 1)

Published in: News

Update your RSS reader before July 1

Google Reader goes bye bye for good in a week! — so don’t forget to update your blog RSS reader (and export all of the blogs you subscribe to) before it’s too late, and you succumb to the zombie horde…


I recommend Bloglovin’ or Feedly. I like the look of Bloglovin’ a little better, especially if you follow tons of blogs, but Feedly makes it easy to import all of your Google Reader subscriptions. They have a big “One Click Google Reader Import” button right there on their home page.

You can also say hi on the regular social media suspects…


My favorites are probably Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. I pop on Twitter throughout the day and love Instagram, but I have some good friends on Facebook, too. Tabs love Instagram.

And subscribe to my RSS feed and daily email newsletter right here.

See you around, you social butterfly. ๐Ÿ™‚ Don’t let the zombies get you!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    i should probably school myself and google stuff, but i have no idea what google reader is. :/ my cuzzo has told me about the cool stuff with google, but i’m just so…..simple.

    your blog is one of the “saved” boxes on my firefox, so i usually don’t have to struggle to find your daily entries. i don’t know if you know what i mean by “saved boxes”. ๐Ÿ™‚ and i’m following you on the: pinterest, tweety, and FB. ๐Ÿ™‚ i know a lot of people with instagram, but i’m really trying to refuse joining another social media outlet! LoL!

      That’s great, Camille! Thanks for your support. Oh, you should break that rule for Instagram. Or not, because it is totally addictive! I don’t know what it is about those funky filters, but they make it so much fun to snap pics of everything.

      OK, not everything, but everything that piques my interest for one reason or another.

      Hope you’re having an awesome Monday so far.

    Done, done, and done. I’ve been with Bloglovin for years and already follow you there. I’ve been trying to ween myself off of Google.

  3. Bloglovin is easy to import all of your Google Reader info too-just one click and BOOM you is done. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll be following you on there now good-lookin’! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I love Bloglovin’. It is so easy and simple to keep in touch with your favourite Blogs. I got it on my phone… Didn’t find your blog first but now your on my Follow List :))

    I tend to use feedly more often since I can manage my other sports, news feeds better with that.

    I was getting a few errors with your feed once (i think a month back) but I unsubscribed and then added you again. Not really sure what it was.

    Originally used bloglovin’ anyways so I’m not inconvenienced anyway. Love you blog!

    I am using Google Reader until the very last day it is available!

    I’ve gotten an account with Bloglovin and I’ve tried The Old Reader. I’ll see which one I end up with after D-day.

    Bloglovin’ does have an app, which is handy. Gotta get my MBB and Tabs fix on the road. ๐Ÿ™‚
