Reading Blogs Made Easier

Do you like to read blogs like I do?

I was recently reviewing some training I have on being a blogger.

Yes, reviewing -- because I have an entire 2" binder full of things that I have printed off... reference sheets, trainings, articles, and all kinds of little inspirational things. Did I mention that researching and learning are two of my very favorite things? :-)

Anyway, I came across a daily checklist of to-dos to help find new readers for your blog, and it included a little bit about reading favorite blogs on Bloglovin and leaving comments.

Bloglovin? I thought that was a thing years ago... a plugin maybe... I can't remember.

Well, it turns out it's still around, and it's a nice, simple interface to read blogs on your favorite topics! I have a bunch of blogs in a bookmark folder called "Dailies!" in my bookmarks bar, but it's still a process to kind of go through and click those links. (And no, I don't do it every day).

Also... and this is me being honest here... I don't like a lot of modern blog design. I hate pop ups and intrusive advertising... but I understand that bloggers want to earn an income for their families.

Bloglovin solves all that. I can follow blogs that I like, just as I would follow boards on Pinterest or pages on Facebook, and there they all are, in clean, simple format. See what I mean?

I can't tell you how happy this makes me! 

I love seeing what other homeschool families are doing, find new craft ideas, new learning ideas, and new recipes. I just love learning, period.

So, I thought I'd share!

Why not give it a try? You can start out by following my blog here: Follow my blog with Bloglovin And then talk to me in the comments. Do you have blogs you read every day? Or do you mostly stay on social media sites?
