YES, I still LOVE reading blogs!
I tried numerous options after Google Reader decided to stop their service and am happy with Bloglovin.‘ You can read either on your computer or use their app for iPhone or iPad (might also be available for andriod, not sure as I don’t use those).
Blogs are not only inspiration but they allow me to see the trends out in the internet.
I know many use Pinterest for that, I like reading the blogs and always have since I began blogging back in 2004. There are people I have followed on their blogs for 10 years – I’ve seen their children grow up before my eyes, seen them through many phases of their lives, their art careers, etc.I follow many of the same on Social Media, but its their blogs that I get the most joy from.
Reading why they picked that colour or the story behind that photograph they took. When I have more than a few minutes, I will comment, but on Bloglovin, I’m able to like and maybe go back later to comment.
Commenting on blogs is how I have come to know those people more….(hint, hint).
There are some people who think blogging is dead – I highly disagree. Blogging is where the “Rest of the Story” is (to quote Paul Harvey, old radio personality). Photos on instagram doesn’t tell the whole story….
If you see someone online anywhere on the internet, check to see if they have a blog – visit, subscribe to their feed and get to know them!
