Hey wow, it’s 2019, did you party like it was still 1999? Well, I hope everyone is able to get some much-needed rest after a busy Christmas season. I wish all of you the very best that 2019 has to offer, especially peace and many blessings and good health.
I’m just writing today about a couple of cool apps I recently added. Yes, I’m probably the last person on the planet to discover them. I always wondered what was so darn great about WordPress reader until I found the WordPress app! Light bulb moment! I can immediately approve posts here and write a nearly-immediate reply. I could even post on the fly if I wanted to.
But…I can only follow people who, like me, have WordPress blogs. What about all those others that I want to follow but not have to always bother with checking emails or going on a clunky website to look at other blogs?
Enter Blog Lovin’ app! I had deleted all the blogs I followed there sometime ago, because I never remembered to go to the website. Some blogs never have had the ability to be followed by email, and I feel like I was missing out on some good ones…until I found the Blog Lovin’ app. You can follow just about any blog, no matter what the platform is. My personal preference for platforms is WordPress (well, I haven’t used the new editor yet, so maybe the jury is still out?), but Blogspot does have some good features too. I only have a presence on Blogspot that is my ID for commenting on Blogspot blogs. I don’t actually write any posts there.
Here’s my little snippet for Blog Lovin’ so that I can claim my blog through there: Follow my blog with Bloglovin. If you want to, go for it! I appreciate any and all followers. I do love comments, but please remember they’re moderated. I’m fairly sure I’d be okay if I ever set it to non-moderated, but since I can approve comments quickly now with the WordPress app, I think I’ll leave it moderated so I can keep all of us safe from not-nice comments.
Did you guys all set a Goodreads challenge for 2019? If you would like to share yours, feel free to comment. Or if you want even more challenges, go to my Challenges list.
