URGENT info for email subscribers and Google Reader users!

As of July 1, 2013, Google Reader is going away. Which means, if you get your blog updates there, you need to find an alternative. There are many, but the two options below are easy, quick and free.

Option 1: Get email updates

The best, easiest choice (I think) is to sign up for email updates. You'll get a single, daily email when Parent Hacks has new content so you'll never miss a hack.

More importantly, I will NEVER give away, sell, or distribute your email address, and you can unsubscribe any time.

Important: if you were subscribed to Parent Hacks email through FeedBlitz, you will need to sign up again through the new service at MailChimp.

Option 2: Use a different feed reader

I now use Feedly for my RSS subscriptions. The interface is lovely and the migration from Google Reader is painless.

I love the way Sarah James of Whoorl laid out her transfer to Feedly (everything's prettier at Whoorl).

Feedly has also put together detailed migration instructions:

Or: head over to Feedly to begin the (quick) migration process.
