I'm really good about being out of the loop on things, so it's only now that I found out that Google is getting rid of its Reader. Some time ago, I switched to Bloglovin' because a couple of my friends were using it, and I found it to be an easier format for me to manage. In case you're interested in importing your blog feed from Google Reader to Bloglovin', click here: www.bloglovin.com/import/reader.
While I don't get anything out of this, I figured I'd share with you the blog reader that I've found serves my purposes, both on my laptop and on my smartphone. Just set up a free account and you're ready to rock and roll!
