How Do You Follow Blogs?
June 13, 2011 13 Comments
I am really curious how you guys follow the blogs you read. I doubt very many people do without some kind of RSS/feed reader. When I first started blogging I remember going to the blogs I liked over and over and not seeing any new content. That got old really fast. Fortunately some really smart, now rich, guy developed something called RSS where any new content gets picked up by any of a number of sites called “readers” whether it is google’s or bloglines or even email subscriptions where you get all new content in your inbox. How do you guys read blogs? Also, how much does twitter play a role in the content you view online?
Second, what moves you to post a comment on any given blog. I probably get 70 page views/comment. That doesn’t seem like a very good ratio. I know I am to blame for a lot of that because I am very guilty of posting content, getting comments and then not responding or dialoging with those interested in that topic. I am trying to do better with that but I realize it still needs to improve.
Last, what makes you smile? Does this?
