Google Reader is Going Away, but I Hope You'll Stick Around!

If you're using Google Reader, you need to make a switch!  I switched to

A lot of people visit this blog from Google Reader, and if you're one of them you need to know that on July 1 Google Reader is shutting down for good.  If you're using Google Reader and don't move your feed subscriptions to another service, you won't be able to transfer them after July 1. 

After investigating different options, I downloaded my reader data from Google (here's how) and switched feeds for the many blogs I follow to  I've been using Feedly for several weeks now and I'm very happy with it.  There are also other feed reader options such as NetNewsWire, The Old Reader, or Blog Lovin'.

To make sure you never miss a recipe on Slow Cooker from Scratch, the most dependable way to follow the blog is by signing up for e-mail updates.  (This method is most dependable because updated older posts don't show up on many RSS Readers, but they do go out on e-mail updates.)

You can also see recipes from Slow Cooker from Scratch by following me on Twitter, Pinterest, or Facebook.  (I don't have a separate slow cooker account on Twitter or Pinterest, but I do share the slow cooker recipes there.)  No matter which way you choose, I appreciate your support of my blog and sincerely hope you'll stick around!


  1. When Google announced Reader's demise, I switched to NewsBlur and have been pleased.

  2. Thanks for sharing; I hadn't heard of that one. And thanks for sticking around!
