In the past, I used a "blog catcher" ... most recently Bloglovin'. Basically I tell Bloglovin' which blogs I follow. Bloglovin' captures recent blog posts from my list for me. The blog posts are held on their web site until I am ready to read them. Once read, the blog posts are automatically removed from my "To Be Read List." Bloglovin' sends me one daily email reminding me that I have blog posts ready for review.
I am sure most blog catcher sites work in a similar fashion. I have used that method for a long time.
Now the problem for me is ... I seem to get behind on my reading. When I open up the blog catcher I can have 100 open blog posts waiting for review. It is can be discouraging. Sometimes I just mark everything as "read" even though I didn't read it. t know the problem rests partly in my tendency to ignore the daily Bloglovin' reminder ... but when I get an individual blog post directly dropped into my gmail inbox, I don't ignore it.
So I am moving over to the "send me an email" subscription method for each blog entry posted. Most blogs offer you the option to subscribe through email. Initially I was worried that my gmail inbox would be flooded ... but that hasn't happened yet. Blog posts trickle in daily and are entirely manageable. And I find I can read a current blog posting far more promptly than before ... at least so far.
what methods have you used ...
and what method are you currently using?
Is there another option out there I didn't mention?
