Lovin’ It…..

This is a follow up to this post.

I’ve finally transferred all my favorite blogs over to Bloglovin’ and I have been using it awhile and I LOVE it.

**The interface is so clean and crisp.

Since they are not trying to do a million other things besides be a reader--( like Google)-- everything is uncluttered and orderly.

**It is SO user friendly

I am sure I could do all the things I am doing in Blolglovin’ in Google but in Google I could never figure out for the life of me how to do it. You want to add a blog? Just click the button. You want to put some blogs that you read on to your blog? Click the button. Want to delete a blog? Click a button and it actually disappears. (This has been a great way to get rid of all those blogs that I never even visit—or that have deleted me{What's up with that?!}--I feel like a new woman!) Google would never let me delete! LOVE it!

({{}{}{Yes I realize I should be shot for that last mess of punctuation and sentence UN-structure)}}}{}{}{

**Adding categories and putting your blogs in them is a piece of cake!

Now when I am in a hurry I can just click on “Fav” blogs and read and comment and then come come back and catch the craft blogs etc later. And I can erase all posts within a category instead of having to wipe out the entire library.

**Need to discover some new blogs? They’ve got a button for that too!!

I just can’t say enough good about my new blog home! Farewell Google Reader! I would highly recommend that you at least go check it out HERE.

PS-This is not a paid advertisement. But the “Send Lisa to Ireland” fund is always open for donations. Amen.

If I donate to SLTI can I come too? Thanks for the bloglovin tip- I need some simplifying in my techno world

Cynthia said...

That sounds interesting! Thanks for the tip! I have tons of blogs clogging up my list where the blogger disappeared a year ago, no longer updates etc. that I just need to clean out of my space. Maybe I'll just 'move' instead!

Sue said...

I'd be happy to donate to the "Send Lisa to Ireland" fund, but only if you take me with you!

i'm trying it out.

I've been thinking I need to set something up that is more reader friendly than jumping and jumping from blog to blog. Don't even get me started on how much I hate Google Reader.

I'm with Jess and Sue - we ALL need to go to Ireland.

You better be planning on a stop over here first! (& then I'll go with you to Ireland) :-)
I can't remember the last time I looked at my reader. I just finally bookmarked the favorites & go that way. I seem to miss a lot...

Mikki said...

Hmmm, sounds pretty cool, I'm going to have to check it out!

LKP said...

can i just hug ya?! seriously. my life needed a re-vamp in a big way...especially in the google reader department. so i delorted the whole shootin' match from off my igoogle homepage. less headache immediately!
however, the bad side-effect is that i'm even MORE behind on my fave friends here in the blogosphere than i was when i was just overwhelmed by my google much so that i was contemplating re-establishing my reader. (i know, shoot me now!)
anyhow, i'm gonna have to look more into this bloglovin' idea. it may just be the happy-medium i've been so desperately needing! you're a rockstar! thank you.

I might just have to give this a try. Sounds easy enough.

Thanks for taking those naps for me...I think they really helped. =) *wink.

This sounds like what I need. I keep deleting blogs and they're gone for awhile and then they pop back up. Drives me bonkers!

I'm off to go check it out.

I am going to check it out. I think I already might have who knows. I have a fever.

Loved catching up on your posts. My dog (Fiona, who looks just like the dog in the truck) eats the fish fertilizer I put in my flower pots.
I figure it's probably good for her.
Montana is beautiful.
We are waiting for more snow. YAY
