In just a few short days (July 1, 2013), Google Reader shall no longer exist to support the blogosphere. I never actually used Google Reader, but I know that it’s no bueno for many of my readers, so I wanted to recommend a fantastic alternative.
I signed up a few months ago and have loved it as a one stop shop to all of my favorite blogs. Here are a few quick tips & tricks to getting up to speed with Bloglovin’ in advance of July 1st…
Sign Up for a BlogLovin’ account
You can sign up using your Facebook login, so this action is pretty easy to complete. Once you login…
Add Blogs to your Feed
Start by adding Kate & Trudy, of course!
Then use the search bar to add as many blogs as you wish. I love clicking on the names of blog owners to find out who they follow as I’m always finding amazing new bloggers through other amazing bloggers’ favorites! You may also find new blogs by clicking “Popular Posts” or “Top Blogs” and checking out different categories. Next up…
Claim your own Blog (if applicable)
If you don’t have a blog of your own, skip this step.
Download the mobile app
This is clutch. You’ve got to have the mobile app! Think about sitting on the train to work, or waiting in line at the grocery store. What better tool to have than all of your favorite blogs’ recent posts to read! You’ll see an easy to view blog roll and can click on whatever you wish to read. It’s amazing and I don’t know what I’d do without my BlogLovin’ mobile app!
That’s pretty much it y’all! Super easy, super convenient. This is the best way to stay on top of all of the blogs you read as often as you can. You’ll never miss a giveaway, special announcement, or awesome written-just-for-you blog post again!
