Find the Google Reader alternative that works for you

I don’t know your strategy for picking a Google Reader alternative, so I’m just going to share what other smart people are saying about their choices and let you decide what will work best for you.

Note: consider multiple aspects of responsiveness, especially now when many alternative sites are swamped.
• Does the site load quickly?
• Is it easy to navigate?
• How hard is it to go back?
• Do they provide migration instructions as Netvibes did as soon as the demise of Google Reader was announced?

Now the rationale:
7 reasons to pick Feedly

10 reasons to try Newsblur

Reasons to pick The Old Reader

Alternatives from Extreme Tech

Alternatives from Marketing Land

Alternatives from Mashable

Alternatives from Small Business Trends

Once you’ve made your decision, head over to Twitter. Tweet about your choice and help others find the best Google reader replacement. Use #replacereader AND your chosen replacement’s name preceded by the hashtag (for example, “I picked #Feedly #replacereader” or “Going with #replacereader #Netvibes”).

What will you choose and why?
