To transfer your feeds from GR to NNX, click HERE then search for "Import Subscriptions from Google Reader". Also works for other readers =)
Bookmark your fav blogs! - Not very effective in my experience.. Tend to just forget to read =x
You can also follow my Facebook page for updates but I do post random contests there and only a small percentage actually see it pop up in their news feed.
Following my personal account also enables you to see my blog updates but there will also be really unrelated stuff lol
Then there's Twitter, where feeds get lost among the updates =/
So tell me, how are you following your favourite blogs right now? I would like to know if there are better alternatives!
