I don’t know about you but I am waaaaaaay behind on my blog reading this week. I don’t know if everyone posted more or I read less but at last count there are about 100 emails in my inbox with blog posts I am yet to read from this week. So if I normally read and comment on your posts and you haven’t seen me, well now you know why!
But I’m here and I’m trying (I’ve been playing read blogs and FAST all morning) and I’m here to get the tips people. Your tips.
I currently follow 216 WordPress blogs and then at least 10 others that are on other platforms. I just get emails for these, they don’t appear in my reader. So that’s more emails in the inbox. I am at a loss as to how to keep up with it all. I don’t want to ignore blogs! Many of these people are my followers and take the time to read all of my posts (or that’s what it feels like! You guys are awesome) so I like to return the favour, not to mention that I don’t want to miss something really great!
I signed up wtih Bloglovin’ at one point as I thought that would make it easier but it so doesn’t. Same shit, different platform.
I’ve considered changing my settings so all the emails come through as daily updates. I will then read things in my reader as a priority and if I’m caught up on those then I’ll scan the daily email updates. I’m sure I will miss stuff that way though but I really do not know how to handle this mutating beast of a thing. I see so many people pull back from blogging because it gets all too much for them and I don’t want to do that.
There must be a better way.
So I’m going to throw it out there to you. What techniques and strategies do you use for keeping up with your blogs? What works best for you? Any tips you want to share with others? I know there are other people out there struggling with this so let’s see what we can come up with when we throw all our ideas in the cauldron.
Thanks for sharing and hope you’ve had an awesome weekend wherever you are!
