Out of the Loop

Until fairly recently I was an avid blog reader, following a variety of writers on topics such as vegan living, minimalism, homesteading and homeschooling.

I have been someone adrift since Google Reader was shuttered last summer. After the shutdown, I immediately switched over to feedly, and at some point, apparently I also signed up for Bloglovin. To be honest, though, I haven’t updated either in a while. I guess I just got so comfortable with using Reader that I haven’t had the energy to change to a new program. I’m sure I’m not alone in this, and if I looked hard enough there is probably a support community on G+ for folks like me.

While I do follow some of my favorite blogs on Facebook, which allows me to get updated content, I have fallen horribly behind in other content.

It’s time I moved on from Google Reader and just adapted.

I am trying to love feedly. I already have the apps installed on my smart phone and tablet, and I admit, I do love the feel of swiping through all the current content in my feed. I haven’t felt the same about Bloglovin, however. I guess I don’t “get” subscribing to a person’s profile as well as their blog profile too. I think that feed readers are one of those things that you tend to just love or hate, based on your personal preferences, so I don’t think it’s a reflection on Bloglovin, but more on what I need as a blog reader.

I’m sure I’m over thinking this whole thing…

In any case, I love sharing good content and feedly makes it darned convenient to do, so I’ll be passing along the good reads I come across.

  1. I don’t know how you keep up, I have barely enough time for FB, & the only reason I can see your blog updates is via when you say so on FB :)
