A little i dotting and t crossing....

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I finally figured out why so many have posted that they are  "claiming my blog on Bloglovin' "'s so they can see the stats of who is using that reader to follow them.

I don't have to post that for folks to follow me; but I DO have to post that little promotional link for me to 'claim' my blog and see if anyone comes by here via their service.

To be honest, I'm not sure I really like using that site myself;  the little synopsis it offers of each post is not necessarily enough for me to decide if I want to read it or not, so it's been way to easy to get in 'skim' mode and miss something I like. And the 'frame' interferes w/commenting (you can click the X in the 'frame' to get rid of it, I've learned).

Plus, they have 'sponsored posts' near as I can tell, that's advertising...stuck in the feed now and then. Until I figured out what was going on,   I'd sit and stare at the  link trying to figure out who I 'followed' that would post such a thing.  Now it doesn't throw me, just annoys me.

But it is a reasonable alternative to the down-to-mere-hours-of-life-left Google Reader, so it's here to make it easy for folks to link up if they like.

And fulfilling my obligation to post the link on my blog. ;-)
