Housekeeping

So, I finally went on over to bloglovin and claimed my blog. But, as these things sometimes go, there was a snafu in the cyber world and it didn't seem to work. I have done some fiddlin' and I think it's working now. I put a bloglovin icon in my sidebar, which you can click to follow my blog over there if you like. I am not sure I am convinced about bloglovin yet, but it seems to show all the 324 blogs I follow, whereas Blogger Dashboard never would. So, we'll see how this goes. How do you get your blog updates?

 I've been using Flipboard on my iPhone to read blogs when I don't have access to my laptop. I have enjoyed using Flipboard (for blogs only - I do not use it for news) - I like the format, and the pictures show up quite nicely, filling the whole screen.


 

 Just because I prefer pictures in posts, here is a shot of a very neglected and confused Amyrillis. It bloomed in March, when it was cold. When it was not supposed to be cold in Florida.

 That's all for now, folks. Please let me know if you do bloglovin and my bloglovin thing isn't working, ok? I hope your Easter weekend was a beautiful one!

 Be back soon with some sewing chatter!

  1. I use Bloglovin and it was working fine even before you claimed your blog.

  3. Oh I don't know about Bloglovin' though I too claimed my blog there. Still don't quite know why ;). I'm waiting for more general comment about various blog readers to know which to use as I have to go from Google Reader in a couple of months. Sigh.

  5. I'm not sure about Bloglovin yet - I'm waiting to see what happens to Blogger Dashboard - I don't think that will change, only Reader.

    1. SarahLiz, I hope that Dashboard stays as well. Right now I am using Dashboard and Bloglovin on the iPad and laptop, but on my iPhone I use Flipboard. I really like the latter on the phone, lovely pictures that show full screen. For some reason I've never been able to sort out, Dashboard doesn't show all the blogs I follow. Bloglovin, Flipboard, and Google Reader do show them, however. {Scratching head....}

  6. I'm using Blogger dashboard AND bloglovin now... we'll see how it goes. Like SarahLSS above I am hoping the blogger dashboard stays as is!
    That little man in his suit in the previous post is too gorgeous for words!

  7. I'm using Feedly because it's supposed to be the next best thing after Reader. But I am determined to use Reader until they kick me off. I haven't claimed my blog on blog lovin yet but perhaps I should do this...
