Keeping Up With Blogs

I fell in love with Bloglovin’ last night. I’m seriously always late to the party. I spent a better portion of my evening catching up on all my old favorite blogs. Many of them were literally the first blogs that I regularly read. Many inspired me to get back into photography. They were blogs about beauty. No giveaways. No hype. Nothing but beauty, really. Here are just a few:

I had imported my Google Reader feed into Bloglovin’ years ago and am so impressed with how it has evolved since I last logged on. I also realized that I had my blog listed under the wrong (old) name and was following blogs from a different account entirely. Oy.

So follow my blog with Bloglovin and leave a link to yours below so I can follow YOU!

*PS: Links in comments sometimes keep them in moderation but I’ll be sure to approve them all asap!

    following you and also recently fell in love – one MILLION times easier than remembering all of them! :)

    I love Daydream Lily! Also, have you used Feedly? I’m still not sold on it and am considering making a full switch to Bloglovin.

    Here’s mine: http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/10087657

    Have a great weekend!

      I just didn’t love Feedly. I felt like I was never caught up. Plus I love seeing blogs in their native setting!

    I wanted to try bloglovin’ but couldn’t import the blog feeds and they didn’t provide ANY support. So disappointed. I’m stuck with feedly, but, I agree…feel like I’m never caught up. :(

      Oh that sucks :( Where were you importing them from?

        well…Feedly (I had RSS feeds set up thru Mail on my Mac then edited down the list to add the blogs I still wanted to keep up with and some new ones). Then I wanted to compare with Blog Lovin’…went by their instructions to import an OPML file. It didn’t work and the customer service reply, after a long delay, was “did you figure it out?”

        So disappointing. I deleted the account I set up. :(

          Ugh I hate it when you get responses like that :(

    I’ve been using Bloglovin’ for a while to follow some of the more lifestyle/personal type blogs (single-writer blogs, usually) and Feedly to follow some of my other blogs. They have their pros and cons – I can never decide what I like best!

    http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/4564115/crazy-lovely-me is me, when I actually get around to posting – I’m recovering from a slump lately. :(

      That’s interesting! I’d love to know why you follow them separately. For awhile I did that (Bloglovin for more of the girly girl blogs and Feedly for my everyday reads) but I’ve found recently that I love them all in one place.

    I was totally late to the party too, I only started using Bloglovin when Google Reader called it quits. I love that you can see the entire page design, not just the blog post! It really makes it feel put together!
