My only slight fear is that since it was originally powered through Google Reader that that once the 1st hits, all my subscriptions will be gone. They’ve promised that it will continue to work fine after Reader is gone, but as I said before, I’m not putting all my eggs into one basket.
Just to be safe, I have backed up my subscriptions and you you may want to do the same. Follow these steps and you will export your subscription file to use later. Visit https://www.google.com/takeout/
Across the top where it says “Take out” click “choose services” a window will pop up and you want to click on Reader. Wait until it is 100% complete then select “create archive” at the bottom. Once again, wait until it is done “building”. It may take a while, depending on how many subscriptions you have. It was so long that I just walked away from the computer for a half hour and when I came back it had the file complete. Click download and you will get a zip file that you can import into other sites later, if you need to.
