People, not only do I have to find a new feed aggregator but I realized my email subscription widget will be dead along with it since Gmail is doing away with feedburner too!

That was the whatever that enabled email subscription to my blog(s) and to all the blogs that make up my blogroll, if I am not mistaken.

What are you doing both as a GReader soon-to-be former user and a blog owner? Recommendations wanted.

I'm not a GReader, and my blogs aren't on blogspot, but if you're looking for a new home for a blog, I really like Weebly. It's very user friendly and has some nice themes. I avoided blogspot partly to avoid the potential problems you're describing -- Google has its hands on too many different interconnected pieces. This especially bothered me for privacy reasons, but clearly there are other problems it can cause.

I think she means that the Blogroll widget of her email will be affected, not the blog itself. Your Blogspot blog should be fine.

I've switched to feedly. It is a little bit more complex than Google Reader but also offers more options. It automatically migrated all of my subscriptions from Google Reader so I didn't need to set everything up again. I would probably make a post about switching to feedly just so readers are aware that there's other RSS options out there aside from Google Reader.

Sorry for the confusion. I mean that the blogroll in my blogger/blogspot works via a program (?) called feed burner from Gmail.

Gmail is giving the ax to Google Reader first, in July, but I read several places online that feedburner is going away to so that means all those blogs that use it so readers can add the feed from those blogs to Google REader and other aggregators will not be served anymore.

ie My blogroll will not be updated. So everyone who used feedburner needs to find a replacement by July 13th.

Feedburner provides the RSS feed (if you read blogs using a reader, you are subscribing to the feed) and some blogs use a widget they provide to show how many readers they have. It also provides the email delivery (along with a way for readers to subscribe by email) of new posts.

See my blog for an example. There is a little blue rectangle on the right sidebar displaying the number of readers - that's also done by Feedburner.

No idea what I'm going to do but I'm sure there will be lots coming out about it as so many people use it. I wonder what's behind these changes?

Easy - they aren't making enough money off of the RSS technology.

Oh for crying out loud! Google, what in the hell are you doing?! This is what I wanted to know since learning of Google Reader's impending demise. Thanks for sharing...I think!
