If you are anything like me and you happen to read RSS feeds from your favorite blogs and other internet sites, then chances are that you are using Google Reader. Unfortunately, starting July 1st 2013, Google Reader will no longer exist. In order for you to recover from the grief caused by the death of your favorite RSS feed reader, I would like to offer a few alternatives:
