Life After Google Reader


QUESTION: What blog reader do you use?

I decided to go with Feedly. I absolutely LOVE this application. I love it on my laptop. I love it on my Android. I love it built into my web browser. (I use Chrome)

Organizing RSS feeds is a breeze! It's easy to understand. There is also a networking tab when you hover over the article you're about to read. You then have the option to open in a tab, Tweet, post to Facebook, post to LinkedIn or post to Buffer. 

Another thing I think is pretty cool about Feedly is when you click on an individual story or article you can see how many likes there are for that specific article on Facebook and Google+. You are also provided with the option to share that article on Evernote, Instapaper, Pocket or Del.icio.us. 

Oh, it was a snap to go from Google Reader to Feedly. There was no work involved. No additional downloading or saving to do. I didn't even have to think about it. It just picked up all my feeds from Google Reader and they magically appeared on Feedly right before my eyes. 

I often wonder if Feedly is in a relationship with Google Reader. ;)

The Blogs Rule Option

  
  

Let’s face it – not everyone who has a blog is a parent.

If you’re a blogger who is not a parent and you would like to be part of this blog directory you are welcome to use the Blogs Rule option!

We now have a category at the top of the page: Blogs Rule.

If you’re a visual person and you want to link to Blog Mommas using a Blogs Rule button I say – GO FOR IT!

Remember, you don’t have to include a button in your sidebar if you don’t want to. But, to be listed in the directory you must share the Blog Love by linking to Blog Mommas from your Blogroll.

You can say “Blogs Rules” and then link to Blog Mommas OR you can say “Blog Mommas” and link to Blog Mommas.

Once you are linking to www.blogmommas.com – Let me know that you are! Then I will network the heck out of your blog and more people will discover you!!

Cuz that’s how I roll! :)

Don't forget we have Businesses, Dads, and Politics in addition to all the cool categories we have listed in the sidebar.

Here's where you find more bling for your blog!!
