Decision Made: bloglovin'

I'll admit that I haven't taken much time to find a new program that will replace Google Reader so I was looking to others for their suggestions.

Wednesday I was reading a blog I enjoy and she mentioned moving to 'bloglovin' so I took a look and was immediately happy with what I saw! 

It took mere minutes to open an account and it easily copied over my feeds. 


So far, I'm very happy! 

I like the way it:
  • displays new posts for all blogs I follow with the most recent posts at the top
  • displays the first picture from a post which grabs my attention and makes it 'pretty' :)  After all, isn't blog reading about the pictures almost as much as the words?
  • only displays those blogs in my list with recent updates (although with a click of the mouse I can see all feeds I follow)
  • I also like that my feeds do not automatically move to a 'read' status as soon as I scroll through them.  If often pick and choose one or two and save others for posts that will require more time to read and appreciate.
I also like that each day I receive an email summary of all blogs I follow and their updates.  No more finding out about important blog posts 3 days after they went up because I didn't have time to check.

So, there you have it.  My choice for a program to replace Google Reader is bloglovin'.  I've added a 'follow me' link in the sidebar if you'd like to follow Catherine's Chatter that way.  It looks like others have chosen bloglovin' too as I found I already had 36 followers when I opened my account. 

I hope you find a program you're happy too and if you're still looking, you might want to give this one a try!


  1. Great minds think alike! I made the switch to Bloglovin' last week. So far, so good. :)

  2. Thanks for posting this! I have been looking for a replacement and haven't been happy with the ones I found. I just signed up for Bloglovin. It looks like they use the same coding for
