Creatively Motivated is using Bloglovin’!
While I do use the WordPress Reader and quite like it, it doesn’t always mesh well with feeds from other blog sites. I’ve seen mention of Bloglovin’ on numerous craft blogs and I thought I would see how it works for me.
Right off the bat there are mostly things I like and some things I don’t. I like that:
- I can keep track of what posts I’ve read
- All pictures show up
- I will see notifications when there are new unread posts
- I can search for similar blogs based on the ones I already follow
I don’t like the ranking. It seems like it makes blogging more about gaining follows than sharing content. I know every blogger wants more readers and visibility, but I would rather have (or in addition) a list of random content than have it show the same top 50 all the time. I follow some of the heavily trafficked blogs, but I like variety and I like finding new people on the rise!
Anyway, I’m still in the early stages of using it. I just signed up today so I have to play around with it a bit more to find out how much I really like it. Please feel free to let me know you also use this site!
