Has anybody else noticed changes to Bloglovin’?
Specifically – changes in their Bloglovin’ feed?
Just look at this:
Note that it now says it brings you (only) the TOP stories from the blogs you follow.
It’s gone all Facebook and Instagram on me 🙁 .
Bloglovin’ has let us all down
Here’s the thing: If I follow somebody – whether it’s on Instagram, Facebook, or Bloglovin’ – it’s because I *WANT* to see their stuff. I don’t want the stupid platform to decide what I might – or might not – be interested in seeing!
So if I haven’t been round your blog lately, I do apologise. But I was relying on Bloglovin’ to let me know when you posted something – and they have let me down BIG TIME.
I only realised when I was catching up on a couple of weeks’ worth of Bloglovin’ emails, and one of my own blog posts randomly popped up in a Bloglovin’ email.
I thought it was weird, coz then I remembered that yes, I do follow myself (doesn’t everybody?!) and as I post 3 times a week … WHERE THE HELL HAD ALL MY OTHER POSTS GONE?!!!
Come to think of it, only moments earlier I’d only noticed one or two new posts from a couple of my favourite blogs – when I know they usually blog a lot more regularly. I figured, you know, life … it happens to us all at times … but now I knew the truth. Bloglovin’ wasn’t notifying me of ALL their latest posts!
Keeping up with your favourite blogs
Bloglovin’, you’ve changed. When did that happen?!
The good news for my favourite bloggers is that now I’m going to sign up for their own email newsletters, as it seems the only reliable way to follow them.
And if you enjoy Middle Aged Mama, I’d love it if you signed up for my own weekly email news! That way you will get a quick update of whatever I have posted in the last week, ready for you to click through if you want to read further.
Oh and as a bonus, when you sign up for my email news, you get to hear the latest chit-chat – the stuff I don’t put on the blog or Facebook or Instagram. It’s like a letter from a friend!
My email news goes out each Wednesday – because I know Wednesday can be a real struggle – stuck right in the middle of the week! Conquer the Hump Day Blues, with my weekly email. From me to you, with love 🙂 .
Now tell me – what is your preferred way of following your favourite blogs? Or have you noticed the changes to Bloglovin’?!
