YOU should be bloglovin


With a just over about a month left before Google Reader bites the dust, its time to switch your reader.  There are different options out there, but the one I prefer is bloglovin.  


I have used bloglovin since before I even started blogging or knew what Google Reader was.  I had made the switch to Google Reader because Google Friend Connect was the preferred method for following on so many blogs.  Now that Google Reader's days are numbered, Bloglovin is back as my preferred reader.


If you haven't made the switch yet, it is super easy to import the list of blogs you follow by easily linking your google account for a quick import.  It then presents your feed in a easy to read format. You can also group the blogs you follow into different groups (that you create) so your feed stays organized.




If you are a blogger, you can claim your blog to track your followers.  You can also add a widget to your blog linking readers to your bloglovin page making it easy for them to follow.  




Whether you are a blogger or not, following blogs is quite simple on bloglovin.  You can search for your favorite blogs right on the site and easily follow without having to search a blog for their follow buttons or subscribe via email.

If you don't already use a reader to follow your favorite blogs, you definitely should.  It makes keeping track of the sites you follow super easy.  There is no need to bookmark multiple pages or get an email every time there is a new post.  You can also discover new blogs based on bloglovin's top blogs and recommendations based on what you already read.



The bloglovin app makes it so easy to read on the go and displays blogs in an mobile friendly page.

If you don't use a reader for your blog feeds (even though you should!) you can still follow your favorite blogs through social media.  Many (most) bloggers use facebook and twitter to connect with their readers.  


You can follow Tesori Belle on bloglovin, facebook twitter, and pinterest.  (I've also recently started using instagram, though I don't have much on it)
