If you’re a blogger or reader of blogs seeing this post, and have either never heard of Bloglovin’, don’t know how to use it, or just haven’t set it up yet… I encourage you to keep reading, because it’s one of the most useful things I’ve found since I started blogging and reading others’ blogs.
First off: What is Bloglovin’?
Bloglovin’ is a blog reader that allows you to keep up with your favorite blogs and discover new content. You can follow all of your daily reads and read them in one convenient location. Plus, you’ll always be aware of new content. No more missing posts!
That sums it up much more eloquently than I could, and really is the basics of Bloglovin’.
Remember: Bloglovin’ is not just for bloggers- It’s incredibly useful for blog readers as well. I’m here to convince you that you should be using it, because I try to make things easier for you! And Bloglovin’ can most definitely do that.
Why should a blogger or reader of blogs use Bloglovin’?
1) It’s an easy way to follow blogs.
Bloglovin’ is legitimately the easiest way I’ve discovered to follow and read blogs. Your feed is updated whenever a blog you follow posts, so you can quickly scroll through to find posts that catch your eye. For me, it’s easier than following through email or WordPress, and I think most people would agree!
2) You can save posts to different collections.
When you read a post you want to save for any reason, you can add it to a collection that you create. Just a few ideas I see often: for future use and inspiration, so you don’t forget to comment on or read the post, different categories of posts (such as blogging tips, recipes, reviews, etc).
3) It’s an easy way for other people to find and follow your blog.
Who doesn’t want more blog followers? If you’re saying you don’t…Well, we are very different people. Bloglovin’ makes it simple for you to gain followers on your blog.
4) It’s an app for your phone as well as a website.
Bloglovin’ is an easy-to-use app that you can download in the app store, and when you’re on the train, standing in line, or waiting for class, you can read blog posts!
5) You can create groups of blogs.
I have a group on Bloglovin’ of my favorite blogs, and when I don’t have time to read every post of all the blogs I follow, I just scroll through that! You could also use this feature to set up groups of different types of bloggers: book bloggers, food bloggers, blogging tips bloggers…
Bloglovin’ is the only way I follow blogs, and I love it. If you’re not using it, you’re seriously missing out! Here is a link to my blog on Bloglovin’, in case you’d like to check it out.
