Lovin Bloglovin!

Blogs, blogs, blogs! They're so popular these days! Most people I know have at least a few blogs they follow. Of course, there are still a few people out there who haven't caught on to the craze. But when they do, they will probably wonder what the heck took them so long!

Anyways, there are a handful of good apps and services out there the group all the blogs YOU read and make pull in the RSS feeds into one easy location or way to read them. Personally, I loved Google Reader, but that service retired a couple of years ago. Since then I have moved a round trying to find the best fit for me. It wasn't until I got Obsessive Book Nerd up an running that I learned about Bloglovin. And oh my gosh! It's wonderful.
 There are lots of things you can do with Bloglovin, integrate all the blogs you follow into one place, find new blogs and monitor your personal blogs. You can add blogs by physically entering the address, or Bloglovin will populate suggested blogs based on what topics you enjoy. You can also like posts to bookmark them. If you are a blogger yourself, you "claim" your blog and it's added to the Bloglovin data base and you get nifty analytics on it once people start finding and reading it through Bloglovin.

There are tons of other nifty things you can do within Bloglovin, so I encourage you to check it out, play round. When you first sign in, you'll want to follow some of Bloglovin's most popular blogs, and of course, be sure to add Baking with Babies and Obsessive Book Nerd to your feed. Cool note, Bloglovin has a free iPhone and Android app to make following your blogs ever easier!
