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!

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. πŸ™ πŸ™

    I have been using feedly and I really like it! I already transferred this blog over to it. πŸ™‚

  2. 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!

  3. 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!

  4. 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.
