A Concern About Bloglovin’…

Hey guys – do you run across this problem? I follow a LOT of blogs via Bloglovin’. However, I’ve noticed lately that I don’t always see all of the blogs I follow in my feed. In fact, a couple of my blog followers have said the same thing about my blog – they aren’t getting my blog updates on a regular basis. Now that is disconcerting.

Here's Christa!Hey guys – thanks for reading!

I’m not a techie – so here’s an easy fix: subscribe to my blog directly via email so that you get an email each time I publish a post. Just look for the subscription box on the right-hand sidebar. I usually try to post about 3-4 times per week.

Also, while you are at it, you can sign up for my weekly email newsletter here. I try to curate different content across all of my social media platforms; so between my blog, instagram, and email, you can keep up with me and all of my quilty antics! 🙂

    This is EXACTLY what happened to me right now! I logged into Bloglovin (which I do about every day) to read a few blogs, etc. and all of a sudden it said you had NINE and I was like “What!?!?” I haven’t seen any posts from her in awhile… no wonder! Now this answers why! hahaha! Somehow it seems the linking was interrupted (whether it be on their end or yours)… glad it was discovered though!

    I guess I’m the odd one out…I haven’t noticed any problems with Bloglovin’. I don’t get emails of blog updates because I follow too many blogs and the emails were overwhelming. Now I just log in to Bloglovin’ and check my feed. I’ve never noticed posts missing, but maybe that’s just me being unobservant.

    Since I signed up for email on your blog I haven’t missed a post. Bloglovin’ no longer lets me know of any posts so I went in and signed up with email. Much better!

    one thing on bloglovin, lots of times it want carry you to a blog it lists. And if you want to comment you have to see in in a new window

    I noticed that about a few blogs and then I go in a few days later and the person looks like they have posted 3 times in one day. I have a couple of posts saved and when these appear below those I know they weren’t there before.

    When it first came out blogs almost insisted you sign up with bloglovin… I didn’t as I prefer to use email.. I get the post everytime and and look/read at my preference. But I did join some recently because that was the only option (other than FB and INstagram of which I don’t do either) and I just didn’t like it. I have to keep that page and all on it even tho I have read some and then remember where I left off etc. So I stopped. Now Instagram and Twitter is the most requested way to follow.. I don’t do either so I can’t follow them! So if I can’t follow via email or Google Group.. I don’t follow. Same thing with giveaways…entry options are FB, Instagram and twitter only. Many bloggers are missing out on alot of followers by doing this and not offering email option. I hope you stay with email option!

    After Google Reader quit, I tried Bloglovin’ and Feedly. I not exclusively use Feedly for blogs. I like the format much better.

    You are so right about not receiving the blogs. I wonder what happens and try looking for them but can’t find them. Someone in ‘blogland’ has taken them !

    Good morning Christa…..I’ve been having problems with Bloglovin for about 3 or 4 weeks now, mostly not receiving any e-mail updates at all and then, getting them only occasionally. I have written them on several occasions and finally, this past Tuesday, received an e-mail acknowledging the fact that they are having problems and are working on it. Since that point, for the last 2 days, my Bloglovin updates have been showing up. I happen to subscribe to your blog newsletter as well, so wasn’t missing any updates. Hopefully they have it fixed.

    I try to follow most blogs by email – its a bit overwhelming sometimes but at least I can read them when I have time. The Bloglovin idea is a good one if it worked – I usually can’t comment on a blog I read thru their reader. I have to leave Bloglovin and go to the blog directly to comment. Most times I don’t bother because it’s a pain!

    Hi. Bloglovin’ does not auto update your blog posts. You have to login to your admin and list the name of the blog post and the date it was published. Then it will appear in the feed 🙂

    I have not been getting the daily Bloglovin updates on a regular basis for over a month now. I am signed up with most blogs directly like email or I probably wouldn’t have seen this post either! Thanks for bringing it up. Now I know it isn’t just me.

  13. Allison C says:

    Feedly is the best! Unfortunately I can’t get all the blogs I read on it, but most of them. Bloglovin is glitchy and getting posts sometimes is problematic, but they eventually show up. What I really hate about bloglovin is that the posts delete automatically after you read them. Frequently I get distracted and read only part of a post and then sometimes the app will close and I lose that post. It’s super annoying and I haven’t figured out a way to stop the deletion. Feedly is def the way to go

  14. Evie H says:

    I always sign up by email since I don’t quite know how bloglovin’ works. I don’t think I’ve missed any of your posts, which would make me sad!

  15. Mary says:

    Yes, I’ve noticed that, too, especially after the post recent Smart phone was sold. My iPad hasn’t been the same. When I find a blogger I like I try to sign up dor the direct email. So many do that one sevice which loads all the posts for one day. Now that one is the last one read and if they build up for a few days, they just get deleted. Also, when I missed something I went to the blogger’s web site to sign up again. Sometimes I’ve been rejected because they tell me I’m already getting the posts. Thanks for the interesting post today.

    I’m like Marcia. Seems like the ones I want to read I don’t get very often at all and others I get on a consistent basis. Yours I hardly ever get.

  17. farmquilter says:

    I always go for a direct email from the blogs I like if it is an option. What I don’t like about bloglovin is that the number of blogs that come in that one email is overwhelming so I usually just delete the email from them without even opening it. If I do open it, I’ll just glance at the little blips they put in the email and rarely go to the posts. They frequently put blogs in there that I know I don’t follow because the content is not something I’m interested in. And I hate the email with the favorite posts in all of bloglovin.

    I tried Bloglovin years ago but wasn’t too thrilled with it. I tried it again after Google Reader shut down but there were so many issues (like blog posts not appearing, for one) and the platform was too limited. I use Feedly and it’s mostly great plus they make constant updates to it offering more options for users.

    I don’t subscribe to any blogs via e-mail because I follow SO many that I would literally have anywhere from hundreds to thousands of e-mails a day if I started doing that! I definitely could not handle that – RSS is the way for me!

    Feedly is quite stable and I do recommend it if you’re looking for a good reader. You can download your blogroll from Bloglovin and upload it to Feedly.

    I don’t like bloglovin’ and would rather sign up on email. I don’t feel like I get all those I sign up for and I get ones I didn’t sign up for and don’t want. If I find blogs on bloglovin’ I sign up for email if I can.
