What's the easiest way to keep track of blogs you visit? Having a whole list bookmarked in my browser isn't really handy because if I'm on my phone I can't remember them all, etc.

|Posted: 5/9/2013 8:42:47 PM|A lot of Peas use readers for this.
I just sign up on each blog to get e-mails when they post. With the demise of Google reader, I was happy about that
You can also put them in the blog roll on your own blog.

I've been using Google Reader for years and am bummed they are closing it down, so I'm interested to see what other peas are using and liking as well.

I just started using Bloglovin. So far I like it. It keeps track of all the blogs I follow in one spot.

I have all
the ones I am most interested in sent right to my email. The rest are in my favorites and I just check them every so often.

I'm not a huge Bloglovin fan (I'm not sure why exactly...)- I've started using Feedly - it looks very much like Google reader. Very clean and uncluttered. I don't like lots of stuff in my inbox and I subscribe to way too many blogs to do emails.
|Posted: 5/9/2013 10:22:51 PM|Another one for Bloglovin! I hate email, and bookmarks aren't "visual" enough for me, so it works great for my needs. Plus, I can categorize them, since some of the ones I read aren't all crafty ones

|Posted: 5/10/2013 1:27:55 AM|I'm using Feedly. It was an easy one-click move from Google Reader, and I love that you can choose the presentation design of your blog feed.
UseYourStash.com New resource on using what you have. Even if you are shopping for new stuff, you have to use it or get a bigger scrap room. ;D
|Posted: 5/10/2013 3:44:59 AM|I'm using Bloglovin' and I love it! You create an account on bloglovin' and add all the blogs you want to read. Then you just go to your bloglovin' profile and there you have all the recent posts of your blogs. When you click on one and read it, it is automatically marked as "read" and you can click to the next, or go back to the one before and so on.
You can also create categories in which you can organise the blogs you read, e.g.: scrapbook / DIY / cooking,... and you can mark single posts as favourites.
I think it's perfect to keep track of all the blogs you read.
(Many blogs already have a button where you can add them to Bloglovin, if not, just add it via the Bloglovin page).
Hope I could help

feedly- a great reader for blogs, in my opinion^^

I've been using Google Reader, and switched over to Feedly. I've been happy with Feedly for the same reasons mrscraftyadams mentioned, clean and uncluttered. I'm still used to typing in "goog..." to get to my reader though! I tried out bloglovin', but didn't really stick with it.

It doesn't alert me to new posts or anything, which is fine since there are very few I read regularly, but I just made a board on Pinterest.

I just bookmark them, but perhaps I should try bloglovin and/or feedly

|Posted: 5/10/2013 10:59:31 AM|I'm another who is said about the demise of Google Reader, but have set up my account on Feedly - they import directly over there - easy peasy!!

I've always bookmarked them and then go through and read periodically. However some don't ever get updated or the links get disconnected when the subscription is up. So what happens with some of the alternatives if someone isn't updating their blog - you just don't see it?

I'm going to have to check out bloglovin and feedly. Thanks for this post!
|Posted: 5/10/2013 10:26:32 PM|
Another vote for feedly. I really like the interface and the iphone app.
I tried bloglovin but didn't like the presentation. Bloglovin also put ads between posts. I found that annoying.
I photograph things, I run and bike for fun and exercise, I sew, I knit, and I document it all here ...

Nikon 28mm f2.8
Nikon 24-70mm f2.8

I downloaded the pulse app to my iPhone. So far I'm loving it!
|Posted: 5/11/2013 2:57:28 AM|I use Feedly. It's pretty.

I'm bummed that Google Reader is going away.
I tried Bloglovin' but don't like that it only shows a preview. I want to see the whole post without clicking.
I tried Feedly and it's ok on the iPhone app but stinks in Chrome. It either marks everything as read or keeps them all read. I don't want a magazine view or list. I just want simple.
I just want Google Reader to stay!
