Google Reader Is Dead, Long Live RSS

Posted: 30 Jun 2013 09:23 AM PDT

There is no time to shed tears over the demise of Google Reader; many of you have probably migrated to another stable RSS Reader. This post is a quick shout-out to all our Yanko Design fans that have been busy with stuff, now is a good time to drop all things and quickly transfer ALL your lists and feeds (including Yanko Design) from Google Reader, before they shut doors permanently. We think readers like Feedly are great. They offer easy migration and can automatically transfer all of your feeds for you.

Wired.com had compiled a list of alternate readers for you and you can pick the one that suits you best. We think Feedly will be a good fit since they offer a standalone web version and its own cloud syncing service. If you act now – before Google Reader shuts down – Feedly will allow you to transfer all of your feeds for you and retain that Google Reader look.

We hope to see all our 250,000+ RSS subscribers through the new channels!
