I have just added a Bloglovin button to my site as an alternative. (See it over there on the right, under my Etsy mini, lookin' like this:)
In fact, you can import all the blogs you follow from Google Reader to bloglovin super easily and it only takes a minute. I'm not sure if this will be a possibility once Google Reader is retired tomorrow, so best do it straight away. It really does only take a minute. Otherwise you might never find your favourite blogs again :-( Just hit the button and sign up then follow the simple instructions to transfer all your favourite blogs across.
You can of course, still follow my blog by email should you wish or by the RSS feed button (both also found on the right hand column of my blog. I also tweet my posts so find me here @handmadebyAMOR
However, it's not all about me and if you want to keep all your fave blogs best import them all over via bloglovin or alternatives such as Feedly.com. But hurry before midnight or we all turn into pumpkins!
