Are you familiar with Bloglovin? I’ve been a member for awhile as a reader, but not as a blogger. Bloglovin allows you to follow your favorite blogs and actually keeps track of them for you, and brings you the latest posts from all of your favorites. I love the way that I can easily sign up for more blogs to be added to my feed, and it even offers up some recommendations if you aren’t sure where to start!
All you need to sign up is an email address. Once you enter that, you can enter the names of your favorite blogs and click on them to add them to your list to follow. If you aren’t sure of which blogs you should follow, click on some topics of interest to you and Bloglovin will recommend some popular blogs. You can easily edit your list to suit your tastes.
The blogs pop up on your feed and are updated whenever the blogs add a new post. You can click on the title to be taken to that current blog post, or you can click up button that says “Mark as read”, which darkens the post and removes it from your current list to read.
My only problem with it is that I follow too many blogs to keep up with. Sometimes I feel a bit overwhelmed by all of the posts – silly problem, huh? But as I stated before, you can just click “Mark as read” and go on to the next topic. I’ve battled and won against my OCD-type behavior that whispers in my ear that I must read each and every post – but I don’t! I can be selective and read only those that really interest me. How awesome is that??? 🙂
Give it a try – click on my button on the top-right of my blog to follow me. Right now I have a whopping 2 followers! You can be one of the first! One of the originals! Thanks to my two followers! You are very special to me – but hopefully you won’t be alone for long!
