First things first, you can find an interview I did with Hollie from Hollie Takes Notes posted today here!
Have you ever heard of Blog Lovin?
It is a website and download-able smart phone app where you can follow and read all of your favorite blogs. So easy!
I know a lot of my readers are friends from Facebook who are not Followers via Google Friend Connect so I thought I would explain how great Blog Lovin is! I started reading blogs a couple of months before I started my own. I had no idea how to "follow" a blog and would just keep the site URLs saved in my favorites. It got to be annoying to go check to see if there was a new post on every single blog I followed (and some post multiple times a day!). I don't know how I figured it out but if you already own a Gmail or Yahoo address, you can be a true follower. Check out the blue 'Join This Site' button on the left side of my blog. Casey did a great post on why you should officially follow blogs and what it means. Read it here.
So back to Blog Lovin. Blog Lovin is another way to sort of follow, organize and read your blogs. Sign up for an account, search for your favorite blogs and click follow! Now everytime you sign in, a dashboard will show what blogs you follow have new posts. The awesome thing about BL is that there is the smart phone app! I do not get on my computer from 5pm on Friday to 8am on Monday but still want to read blogs so I do so using the Blog Lovin app on my phone.
You will see this button on lots of blogs. You can click to be taken to their unique Blog Lovin page where you can start following.

I'd love for all my Facebook friends and loyal readers to become "followers" but hey, as long as their reading, I am happy! I just wanted to share this awesome app for those of you who take the time to read pieces of bloggers lives.
Have a great short week y'all!
