I have really been struggling to keep up with my blog reading lately. So I apologise if I haven’t been commenting or even reading your stuff lately, but with pBloggers, my own blog and family and work, I am really struggling.
I used to use Google Reader which I really liked. I liked the format, how easy it was just to scroll through your reading list and it would mark things as read if you scrolled past them. So I would just read what I was interested in and the posts would not build up like they seem to be now.
Then when Google Reader was shut down I started using BlogLovin. Now I really like Bloglovin but there are a few things that I’m struggling with. Firstly, I am now using Bloglovin for the pBloggers account too. Basically, anyone that follows the pBloggers blog via Bloglovin, we then follow back and then we use the Bloglovin feed to pick our favourite blog posts for our write ups. Now, while logging in and out of bloglovin accounts is not so much of a problem online (I’ve got it to save the passwords) on my phone its a pain in the back side. So I’ve decided to try Feedly, which I’ve heard good things about. I really like the iPhone app. Its very smooth and has really nice transition between blog posts. It looks like a lot of thought has gone into the design. My only problem is that Bloglovin currently has no way of exporting blogs to another provider and I haven’t had time to add them all one by one. I follow a lot of blogs. I think I may have to abandon some of the blogs I follow as I just don’t have time to follow them all.
What do you do? How do you follow other blogs? Do you subscribe by email (I hate the idea of my inbox filling up with blog posts)? Do you use Bloglovin? Or another provider?
