RIP Google Reader // Free Fonts #2

I just found out last week that Google Reader is going to retire on the 1st of July. I think I am the last person to know! It sent me into a bit of a flap because, until now, all of my email subscriptions have been handled through google reader.

After a frantic weekend I have now set up a new newsletter plugin and have copied all the old subscriber email addresses over. If you are currently subscribed you will (hopefully) receive two email from me while I test out the plugin. From the 1st of July you will continue receiving one email per post, as usual!

If you are looking for a replacement reader I can heartily recommend bloglovin (I have also tried feedly and that seems pretty cool too). If you have any recommendations then please share!

Fonts: Soy milk // Jess Font // Brain Flower // The Skinny // Peach Milk

While I am here I thought I would show you some lovely fonts I’ve just discovered. The chunk of wood behind them has just been chopped up and features in my next project!

  1. I was so sad when I found out about this years ago. And my beloved iGoogle is retiring too. :( :(

    I have been using feedly and I really like it! I already transferred this blog over to it. :)

  2. I’ve been using feedly for 2 months and I’m loving it.

    LOVE the fonts, esp Soymilk!! I’m kind of a font junkie, now that I have a Silhouette machine :)

    • Kate #

      Yay! How are you finding the silhouette machine? It’s been on my wish list for a long time but it’s a lot of money….(more expensive here in the UK I think)

      One day!

  5. Have started using bloglovin recently and really like it! Better hurry up and finish transferring over the blogs that i follow. Yours was one of the first ones of course!

  6. Only bloglovin :)
    Thanks for fonts!

  7. Love these fonts, I’ve already downloaded them all !

  8. I’m still cheesed off about Google Reader ending and I’ve known about it for weeks! :)

    I found out about gr being killed off in a ritualistic fashion in February or March… thats about when the alert started cropping up at log in. I moved over to, its set up a lot like google reader used to be– same sort of layout, with the ability to share to your friends. its alright, i like it. its userbase has boomed since google killed gr.

    Just to drop another option to Google Reader. I’ve been using Newsblur for a couple of months and it’s quite good.
