July 1, 2013 Google Reader will be shutting down. I am investigating options for those of us devoted to the service for our blog reading obsession. Quickly though, for those of you looking for alternatives here are some options for web base browsing:
Create an Archive: Either way you go you are going to want to export your feeds: Visit the Google Takeout page for Reader. It will generate an archive file of your subscriptions. Click “Create Archive.”
Once the file is complete, click download and save the .zip file to a folder on your desktop. Double click to unarchive the file. You should find a folder called “firstname.lastname@example.org”.
Most of these will allow you to import your feeds and at the very least you will have an archive of your carefully curated blogs.
