One, The Other or Both



Part of my non-working routine here in Alabama is to read a range of blogs whilst having my breakfast and a few cup of Yorkshire Tea.  I favourite, like, share and comment in the hope of broadening my blogging network and finding future ideas and inspiration for myself.  The question that I’m asking myself everyday is whether I should use the ‘WordPress Reader’ or ‘Bloglovin’.

I like the WordPress Reader as it is easy to search for tags and easy to click the little follow button at the top of my  screen.  Making and replying to comments is smooth as I get notifications immediately on all devices.  I have found that if I am following a WordPress blog, they are aesthetically pleasing on the screen.  However, I have followed a couple of ‘non-wordpress’ blogs in the reader and they just look pants!  I find that I don’t want to click on them as nothing appeals to me 😦

Bloglovin is something that is quite new to me.  I have a profile and my blog is linked to my profile.  Being able to mark posts as ‘read’ is a fantastic idea, and when I like a post it appears on my profile in a tiled fashion.  I have followed loads of blogs that I like to read (and adore the photography of!).  I don’t quite understand the commenting system as all blogs are different and I never know if anyone has replied to my comments…if anyone can shed any light on this I would be extremely grateful!

Bloglovin seems to be the way forward.  The design, the features and the ability to follow all blogs, including WordPress blogs.  But I can’t help but think that I would be abandoning WordPress 😦  I like getting followers though WordPress and I’m sure others do too.  If someone followed me on Bloglovin, would they also follow me through their WordPress Reader?  Probably not!

I am interested to see what everyone uses.  Wordpress Reader? Bloglovin? Both?
