Keeping track of other bloggers
I LOVE to read other blogs. In fact I find myself spending more time reading other’s blogs than writing my own!
This winter, when I started seriously blogging, I needed a way to streamline how I kept up on my blog reading. Now, I know that I could subscribe to blog readers, but I really like actually visiting blogs to read them.
So, I came up with a way to do just that!
One day while I was straightening up my bookmarks in my Favorites bar I realized that I could create folders in my favorites bar.
The first folder I created was called Daily2Read. These are the blogs like Blogelina that I want to check daily for new and inspiring blog posts!
For a few weeks I would open this folder and systematically open each website and read any updates.
Then one day I saw at the very bottom of the folder, “open in tabs”. So, I clicked on it!
Opening a series of tabs at once!
Poof! It took a few minutes to load, but ALL my favorite blogs were opened in separate tabs!
Now I make it a habit to “open in tabs” all my favorite blogs before I take the kids to the bus. When I get back home I can quickly read and close each tab.
Streamlining blogging challenges
As a blogger I also like to participate in challenges like Blogelina’s 100 comments challenge.
Using the same folder method, I put new bloggers I am in a current challenge with in a folder.
That makes it easy for me to read all of their blogs during the challenge and interact with comments.
Blogging is a fun and time consuming job. I hope these tips give you more commenting time!
