Making the Switch from Google Reader to Feedly

If you are a Google Reader user, then you are probably aware that the service will be closing its doors on July 1. That’s less than two weeks away, which means you should be making plans to move to a replacement service sooner than later. I’ve decided to make Feedly my new RSS reader of choice—for now, at least.

We are in the process of finalizing the migration from the Google Reader back end to the new feedly cloud backend. This is an important post to help you prepare for the final step.
