The Google Reader is going away....because not many people were using it. The Google Reader is not the same as your "dashboard". Personally, I look at my dashboard to see what blogs have new posts and then go directly to the blog from my dashboard. If you were around long enough, the same kind of panic swept the blog world last year and everyone jumped on the "Linky Followers" bandwagon, which was not necessary unless you had a blog that was NOT powered by Blogger.
It's still a good idea to have Bloglovin' on your blog and Melissa at Serendipity and Spice has written a very good article explaining this whole thing. She is my "go to girl" on all things bloggy and she has never steered me wrong. (I've known Melissa since my first week of blogging.) While you are there, check out her "Blog Tips" and you might want to follow her because she has a great linky party, "Manic Monday" and some awesome projects and great recipes as well. You can find Melissa's article by clicking her logo below.
