My Favorite Way To Keep Up With Blogs I Love
I may be a little behind the times, but I've always struggled with keeping up to date with all of the blogs I love to read. I used to keep track via Facebook - I had an "interest" list with all of my favorite bloggers, and I would rely on them to post links to their blog posts as they publish them. But recently, Facebook has hidden the "interests" feature deep within their ever-changing navigation bar, and I'm never able to find it when I want to see what everyone is up to. It was never a great solution, and I wanted to find something better. Somewhere I could go to quickly see any and all updates, and read each post easily, both on my phone and online.
And then I found Feedly.
And again - I may be behind the times, but ya'll - IT'S INCREDIBLE.
There are several different RSS readers available, but I love Feedly because it's both beautiful and functional. I started using it on my iPhone, and the layout is absolutely stunning and SO easy to use. The first page is a full page image, and as you scroll down, you're taken to a list of unread posts with thumbnail image previews. To read a post, you simply click on the preview and it pops up right in the app. When you're finished, you click out of it and you're taken right back to the list of unread posts. It's a super easy way to ensure you've read all of the content that you're interested in, and the app is honestly a pleasure to use.
Feedly also has an online website, which makes reading blogs in your browser super easy as well. Again, everything is kept in-app, so you're not navigating around to a bunch of different sites with a thousand windows open. It's super easy, streamlined, and beautiful to use.
Honestly, Feedly has about a thousand features that I don't even know how to use, but the basic functionality is perfect for my needs! If you're looking for a way to keep up with the blogs that you love, it might be perfect for you as well!!
And now it's your turn! Help an ever-increasingly-technologically-challenged girl out - how do you keep up with the blogs that you love? If you have any secret tips or tricks, I'd love to hear them in the comments below! Or, if you try out Feedly, let me know how you like it and if it works for you!! :)
