Ditching Google Reader and Discovering Bloglovin

I am certainly not the most computer literate, internet savvy person in the world.

The fact that I can manage this blog, post photos and links, etc. sometimes seems like a minor miracle.

 So when I first started seeing stuff about Google Reader going bye-bye, I honestly didn't understand what it meant.

Yeah, I'm a little slow.

I get it now -- it's how I and probably some of you follow all of your favorite blogs so all the new posts are waiting conveniently for you each time you log in. I don't know about you, but I'm so lazy that if I had to hunt down new posts from all the blogs I like each day, I probably wouldn't keep up with very many and that would be a serious bummer.

That's where Bloglovin comes in -- it works just like Google Reader in that you can follow all of your favorite blogs, with the newest posts popping up at the top of your dashboard, but I actually find it to be a bit more user friendly.  If you want to keep following this blog, you can click the icon below and sign up:

Follow on Bloglovin

I'm in the process of re-following all of my favorite blogs on Bloglovin and it's actually really easy even if you don't have a direct link like the one above. All you have to do is type the name of the blog in Bloglovin's search box and click follow.

Piece of cake, right?

Hope you're all having a great weekend. I got to see Fleetwood Mac at Jones Beach last night (if you're not from the NY-metro area, Jones Beach Theater is about the best venue in the world to see a concert because it's outdoors, right on the water. Nothing better than live music and the ocean -- am I right?)and they were beyond fabulous. I want to be just half as good at life at their age as they are, I swear.
