How I Organize Following Other Blogs

How I Organize Following Other Blogs

The hardest thing for me when I was a new blogger was figuring out how to organize following other blogs, and commenting on blogs, both my own and others. I used to use Google Reader and then it went by the wayside and I struggled for a bit to find my footing again. There are lots of services and software out there to help you organize your feeds, but none of them seem to be exactly what I’m looking for. So I went old school and decided to manage everything via email. How I Organize Following Other Blogs Follow blogs via email. Once I identified my favorite bloggers, I subscribed to their posts via email. I’m fairly discriminating about who I follow. I follow bloggers who reciprocate comments/blog promotion or post content I’m interested in. I’m not afraid, after following a blogger for a few months, to unsubscribe. Create filters in Gmail to move those subscriptions out of my Inbox immediately. You are probably thinking, you subscribed why aren’t you reading them first? Well, I get a lot of messages every day and while I love visiting, reading and commenting on blogs, I can’t do it every day! So I […]

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.And so it begins. My stay-cation with mini-road trip.

Book Blogger Buzz Tour! We All Make Mistakes from Ali’s Bookshelf

Book Blogger Buzz Tour! We All Make Mistakes from Ali’s Bookshelf

Today I’m happy to welcome Ali from Ali’s Bookshelf to the stage at Second Run Reviews. Ali and I are taking part of the Book Blogger Buzz Tour and today’s my day to be the Hostess with the Mostest. Ali is the mother of two amazing kids and she loves to read. She has been reading most of her life and loves to read YA books and fantasy/romance books–vampires, werewolves, elves, Dwarfs and a bit of magic, OH MY! Her bookshelves are overflowing, but I’m sure, if she is anything like me, that doesn’t stop her from buying more books! The goal of Ali’s Bookshelf is to share her love of reading with others. Ali is the host of a great feature called Right Up My Alley (clever name!) and Mini Me Corner which features her daughter. And now I will turn it over to Ali who is sharing her biggest blogger fail. I hope that after everyone reads Ali’s post they will take a minute and use one of the links below to start following her. She’s got some great stuff happening over at Ali’s Bookshelf. Take it away, Ali! Your Biggest Blogger Fail. Recount it.Looking back over my […]
