Be warned. This post has absolutely nothing to do with personal finance. It does have to do with how some of you get your personal finance articles from Beating Broke, however.
More specifically, with those of you who use Google Reader to read the articles here on Beating Broke. The latest stats show that there are a couple hundred of you or so. Last month, Google announced that they would be discontinuing the Google Reader service on July 1st, 2013. As a result, if you use Google Reader, you will no longer get updates from this and other websites.
Now is the time to make a few changes to make sure that you can keep updated. Lifehacker has a good roundup of some other popular RSS readers that serve as replacements for Google Reader.
There are a couple of other ways that you can make sure you don’t miss any of the content from Beating Broke. Use one of the services listed in that Lifehacker article, or subscribe to receive new content via email by clicking this link (Subscribe by eMail) and then entering your email and clicking subscribe. You can also subscribe to the Beating Broke newsletter for additional content (it doesn’t include the regular articles).
You’ll likely want to rinse and repeat that for each of the sites that you currently subscribe to through Google Reader. Be sure to do it before July 1. I’m not sure what their plans are for after July 1, or if you’ll even be able to access the site, so getting it done earlier is better.
