A little tip about blogrolls ~


Have you taken a look at my new link page? Several other bloggers are doing this, Lidy at the French Garden House gave me the wonderful idea. I just love so many blogs that I want to share them with you!!




Do you know how I read them though? When I first started blogging, I would go down my blog roll clicking on each blog to see if they had added a new post. Well, many times they hadn't and I had to move on. Well, as you know, life happens and we can't always post daily. Then I discovered http://www.bloglines.com/ It is on this website I copy, save and paste my favorite blog locations and then I have a blogroll. When their particular name is featured in bold, I KNOW that they have posted something new!!! No more clicking to visit a blog that has not posted.

Now that's not to say you shouldn't have links posted on your blog. Posting your links shares with visitors the blogs that you love and your taste in particular. So, create a blogroll a www.bloglines.com but also post the blogs you love on your blog, or you can do as I did create a separate blog and list them, categorized!!! I'm a blog lover, OK??

I love sharing....xxoo, Dawn

Like you, I love checking in on my friends daily. It amazed me, when chatting with a couple of bloggers here in Prattville, that they don't. They are notified by email when a new blog is published and they read it there. But the whole point, I argued, is to experience the site, the music, and any newness on the side bars. Most of them just grinned and said they don't have the time. Hm, I take the time :) Your ideas would solve the problem!

Hi Dawn!
I'm a blog lover, too! And, I too, used to do the same thing: Daily click on each blogger in my blog roll! But now I used Google Reader, and as you say with Bloglines, MY LIFE IS So MUCH EASIER! I'm still giving it thought as to making a separate Blog Favorite Blog, it's a great idea!

Dawn! Thank you so much! No wonder I can't keep up and keep missing things - I need help. I have been doing just what you said... going down the list, nothing new, then getting distracted,side-lined... What a help this will be.
Thanks!! Devonia

Okay, Dawn. I did it. I did it when I said that I never would. I subscribed to Bloglines. Hope that it proves to be the timesaver that you promise. :>

I just discovered Google Reader a few months back and boy did that save me some time!

The great thing is i can log into that anywhere and see where new posts have been listed!

Like you I would click through my favourites... waiting for pages to load to sometimes find no post for that day and then onto the next!!
