Over the years I have tried following various blogs and, for whatever reason, I have found it quite cumbersome to keep track of them all. I have signed up via email notifications for many blogs but find that I have used different email addresses so they are not all located in one spot. And even when I do receive them, I find that I often don’t open the emails and actually read them. I have tried using Google Reader and that didn’t take with me either, along with other various techniques that just haven’t panned out for me. It’s felt chaotic trying to manage these blogs, and in the process, I feel I have missed out on some great information.
The WordPress blogs have always been easy to follow because we are a part of this community and they conveniently show up on the reader with easy access. The problem is, there are many blogs that I’m interested in following but they are outside of the WordPress community….but I’ve finally found my answer…..
I mentioned that I joined Bloglovin’ in a post a few weeks ago (here). At that time, I wasn’t exactly sure what is was all about and how it would work for me. Now that I have had a little time to work with it, I’m finding that it truly is the answer to keeping all my blogs in one spot with simple and easy access to read them all.
It actually is very similar to the WordPress reader except you can add any blog you want. All your favorite blogs in one place. All you have to do is type the address of the blog you are looking for in the search box and the blog miraculously shows up. Then, you just add it to the repertoire of amazing blogs you follow and all their new posts will show up in your feed! For even easier accessibility, you can organize the blogs by categories which is helpful if you don’t have the time to go through the whole feed. I’m lovin’ it!
There is so much more the site does that I have yet to discover (I believe it may even work in conjunction with WP somehow) but just the fact that I can organize and easily read all my favorite blogs is enough for me right now.
I mention this because many of you showed an interest in wanting to know more about Bloglovin’ when I did my original post, so I wanted to share how happy I have been with my decision. If you are looking for a better way to manage all your blogs, come on over and check out Bloglovin’ ~ it may very well be the answer to keeping all your blogs in order as well.
