How to set up Bloglovin'

Hello, sweet friends!

Have you noticed that many bloggers are following you using other formats and readers?
Not just Google+ or Google Friend Connect?

One easy-to-use format is Bloglovin'.

Many of us have the convenient "follow me on Bloglovin'" buttons on our blogs. 
To gain more followers, and make life easier for those who utilize Bloglovin'
you can enable a Bloglovin' button, too!

AND

you don't need a Bloglovin' blog to do this!


Create an account (email ID + Password).



After creating your account, "Claim Your Blog" for your HTML (which will be added in your Blogger's "Add a Gadget" column). Here's how:

You may find that your blog already has Bloglovin' followers, making it easy to claim.


If you have trouble "Claiming Your Blog",  follow the step-by-step directions here:


Bloglovin' has very handy apps for smart phones and tablets. 
In fact, I leave comments on my Friends' Blogs via the app on my iPad.
It's very user friendly.

Bloglovin' allows you to organize blogs the way the old, old Google Reader did - 
sorting and categorizing your blogs into folders, like:

Friends
Computer Tech
Challenges
Knitting
Recipes
Techniques
or whatever works for you!

Hope this helps a little.

PS - to keep up with the Google Blogger, Word Press, Typepad quirks and understand the latest gadgets, problems, solutions and easy step-by-step directions for making blog life more manageable, try following
The Real Blogger Status.

hugs,

What an awesome, informative post my friend!! I've lost over 80 followers after the whole change with Google friend connect. I've had Bloglovin for a while but haven't paid much attention to it. Thank you for reminding me!! Have a great evening!! Big hugs :)

Hello, Donna! Thanks for the info! I have Bloglovin' but find it awkward to read blogs so I still use my Dashboard Reader. I do have a number of Bloglovin' followers though so it seems that it's quite popular. Thanks for the link to the Blogger Status blog - have not seen this blog before and I can always use help and tips about Blogger! Hope you're doing okay, my friend! Hugs to you!

Hi Donna, I have decided I would put this back on my blog, I did remove it as I thought I did`nt need it, but I noticed my cards were still being shared with Bloglovin.
Could you be a sweet friend (lol) and tell me how you put the "blue background" showing how many followers on your sidebar, I cannot find this how too anywhere..
Big Hugs Pam x
