You may have seen the above button on a number of blogs and if you look to your right and down a bit you’ll see it here!
This post isn’t really book related – but it is blog related and as a reader of blogs (even if not this one, well apart from this post) you might find it useful
Basically, this post is a love post for BlogLovin which if going by the number of subscribers I get on there (6) is not echoed everywhere. BlogLovin is essentially a blog reader – but, but, but please don’t switch off now!
It’s way better than Google’s offering – with BlogLovin you can almost wave goodbye to a blog reader saying 1,000+ posts to read *groan*. If there’s anything that puts me off reading and commenting on blogs it’s that!
You can use BlogLovin like google reader – I don’t personally and I don’t think that’s where its strength lies (though it looks about a million times better and feels less daunting than other readers in this regard).
It’s the daily feed emails that I love, basically each day BlogLovin sends you an email with the latest posts you haven’t read – this email includes new posts from the last 24 hours but also posts which haven’t been read from earlier days (though these aren’t included every day I’ve found).
Condensing all the posts into a helpful and attractive digest complete with images – I then scan down the list and intros and if any grab my fancy (there’s normally three – four that catch my eye – some days more, some days less).
What’s more is that posts aren’t kept indefinitely (unless you choose to save them) – they say they keep them for a minimum of two weeks so in theory BlogLovin should never feel like it’s getting too much.
Simple, elegant and something that makes me want to read even more blogs. Please support them!
Normal service will resume shortly!
