Google Reader is shutting down for good tomorrow (July 1st), so make sure to export all of your favorite blogs (which hopefully includes this one!) onto a new service, such as Bloglovin’, which is quickly becoming the go-to within the blogosphere as a replacement for Google Reader. Bloglovin’ has an import feature so you can easily transfer your favorite blogs into their service so you can continue to get updates.

    I can vouch for bloglovin as an alternative to Google Reader. I’ve been using it ever since I got the news about Reader being shut down and it’s great, as is the app, and this is after trying a couple of different alternatives.

    Just wanted to say Feedly is great too and automatically transfers all you feeds/saved articles over from Google Reeder.

    I personally love reading your daily emails, and much prefer that to other methods with the exception of just looking at your site directly.

    I’ve been re-enjoying your Behind the Scenes series about how you started your blog and I am unsure if you have answered this question elsewhere. But I was wondering how you obtain your press photos from product launches from the companies. I know it’s hard not to infringe on copyright laws on the interwebz these days. Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated!

    I’ve never known where to state the following, but here ya go ;D
    I mostly utilize just your site (95% of time, other is MUA b/c of an account w/’em) & I’m shocked/over-impressed with:
    How, to date, you remain a “one-woman show” as you are the researcher/ media poster/ blog & info, updates & archives–etc.. WOW!
    Truly awesome of you 😉 Jecca
