My theory has always been that the powers that be over at Google HQ are doing their best to streamline all social media through Google+. Despite some criticism, Google+ is still alive and kicking. (You can even join me here.) However, if you're not interested in conspiracy theories or new platforms, and all you want is a solid replacement for Google Reader, my Twitter feed has been going crazy over Bloglovin. I'm not overly familiar with all its ins and outs yet, but it seems to be a solid replacement. And if you haven't been using a reader before, now may be the time to look into it with (potentially) all your favorite blogs touting new "follow" buttons.
So, yay for another app!
And if you do sign up, be sure to use my Bloglovin follow button in the sidebar or here:
