Do you get your RSS feed via Google Reader?
If you do, you may be sad -- even upset-- to hear that as of July 1, 2013 Google Reader will be a thing of the past. Google's explanation for this move is that the service just isn't being used enough. This, of course, is a business move for them. If you are a blog or website owner, you may find that it dramatically affects YOUR business, as a result.
Here is a link to an article by Search Engine Watch explaining more about the change, including some alternatives that you and your subscribers may want to consider: Google Reader Going Away July 1
In the meantime, here's an idea: subscribe to your favorite sites via email as a backup plan. Once you have the new service set, you can always go back to RSS.
