Hello my Pretties,
Have you heard of Feedly? After Google announced the shutdown of Google Reader, everybody were looking for another way to read their favorite blogs. Some migrated to Bloglovin and Feedly. In this post, I will be talking about Feedly as many of you are already familiar with Bloglovin.Before I start, allow me to clarify some things. This is not a paid post nor Feedly contacted me to publish a review. What you are about to read below are purely my opinion and based on my experience.
Let’s get going, shall we? I find myself spending more time in Feedly than in Bloglovin. Why?First, I can change the lay-out and filtering. Let me show you.I prefer the Title lay-out because it shows today’s posts and the previous days. It is arrange by date. I find this easy to look for post that might capture my interest.
A pretty way to read your favorite Blogs.
Cards View – is like I am in Pinterest.
Index View – It will show a blog list that you are following + number of unread post
History View – is a list of post by date.
Second: Mini Toolbar. I can add those sites with no GFC and Bloglovin.
Go to Preference. Scroll down and you will find Mini Toolbar setting. Choose Yes. You can use the toolbar to save sites, preview site in feedly and share it via FB, Twitter, email, G+ and Pinboard.
The mini toolbar can be found at the bottom right of the browser window.
To add a websites using the mini tool bar: Press preview site in Feedly (first green button) then just right after the site’s name is an orange add button.
You can search for sites, explore and add other blogs at any categories.
Search for the Website you would like to add. Press the + button . Input information in Category to organize your favorite sites e.g. Food Blogs, DIY and etc.
I wish they have follow Buttons and counters like Bloglovin. Bloglovin is very easy to navigate and use. I have to admit I was a bit lost when I started using Feedly but after some familiarization it went smoothly.
There you have it. I hope you find this review helpful.
Thank you so much for reading. Are you in feedly? how do you find it? Let us know your experience. Just comment below.
