How Will You Read This Blog Without Google Reader?

If you read this blog through Google Reader, you may be wondering what to do now that it is going away.  There are a few options:
  • Sign up by e-mail.   It's in the top right of this page.  Anyone who signs up will receive, for free, the first page (the introduction) of the study guide I've been working on.  Please bear with me as I learn just exactly how to do this! (Edit: I'll probably send out the intro in my first newsletter).  I've been using feedburner for email sign ups and alerts, but I've heard good things about Mail Chimp, so there will likely be some experimenting with these to see what works best.  If you choose this, you can always set rules/filters in your email to have anything you subscribe to sent to a specific folder.  
  • "Like" me on Facebook.
  • Follow me on Twitter
  • Use an alternate reader. (Edit: there are a few listed in the article, and I've been hearing good things about one of them, Feedly).
Due to the probability of more people reading via e-mail, I want to continue to stick to a three times per week posting schedule (with a few exceptions here and there) so as not to clog up your inboxes.  Also, I think I will send out a quarterly newsletter as well.  I'd been thinking about doing that anyway, so I guess the timing is right for it.

Feedly is a good alternative.

Yes, I have been hearing good things about it in the last 24 hours. I thought it was mentioned in the article I linked to, but I'll have to double check, and maybe edit the post to mention it separately.
