... which should I choose?
I am the type of person who learns more from using something rather than just reading about it (and yes, I am also the person for whom the phrase "if all else fails, read the instructions" was invented) so I am currently conducting a test. I am running both systems in parallel for a few weeks to see which I prefer.
So far there does not seem to be much to choose between them, but there are a couple of niggles I have with Bloglovin. Firstly, from what I can see, any posts which I have not read after a couple of weeks will disappear from my reading list. This is not really a problem, but it might be if I found myself in the middle of the Sahara with no electricity or internet access for a month - not at all likely, where would I be able to plug in my hair straighteners and sewing machine - then I might miss something really important that one of you have written. The other thing I'm not happy with is that they tell me I must "claim my blog" (I'm not sure why, but I did what I was told, and lo and behold, there is this little button thingy that appears, that looks a bit like this:
Follow my blog with Bloglovin
and that annoys me, cos you may not want to use Bloglovin but may not realise that you can still follow in other ways.
Any way, I will carry on using both, and will report back in a couple of weeeks.
