LOL Thanks for the reminder i actually had a post sitting in draft for 3 weeks and totally forgot about it . I was writing stuff about this as well.
I switched to feedly, months ago. Just moved my google reader content, with a touch of a button. I like it better than bloglovin', and you don't have to claim your blog. I claimed my blogs the last time I re-vamped, but I know lots of small bloggers who'll be stymied by this. I use bloglovin' as a backup; but I really like feedly best.
