To export google subscriptions:

"Go to google.com/takeout. (If you’re not already signed in to your Google account, it may ask you to do so.)

Click on ‘Choose services’, then click on Reader.

Google will begin preparing an archive; wait until it displays a 100% message.

Click on ‘Create Archive’.

Once the archive is created, you can download it as a zip file by clicking on ‘Download’.

You’ll be asked to verify your password before the download begins.

That archive (which consists of a set of XML and json files) can be used by a range of Reader alternatives, so it’s definitely worth having. Not all readers will use all features (such as stars), but almost anything will be able to read the basis subscription XML."

As said in this tutorial, the "stars" system should not work on other Rss readers. Try it and feedback us all if the operation is ok :)

Obviously , you need to be logged in to Google to view any of the atom feeds,

unless you make the tags or starred items public in Reader settings.
