I’ll miss Google Reader, but it’s no longer how people read this site

If my Google Analytics reporting is to be behaved, the peak of Google Reader usage for me was in mid 2008, and by early 2010 it had been reduced to background noise. I can understand based on this graph (and perhaps millions of other graphs like it) that it might be time to call it quits.

It looks like from other charts (that I won't show here) that Twitter picked up the slack, as did Facebook. 

Google's "sunset" announcement for Google Reader says that you can get your data out; I'm sure that at least one service will appear to let you load it in and carry on reading.

    If your graph tracked all of your Google Reader followers they’d all be listed in the comments already 🙂
