A Question For You

I’m curious – what are your blog reading routines? How do you read your faves? When do you read them?

I read my blogs every morning during breakfast. And I love this routine.

In general, I read blogs by clicking on my blogroll rather than via email or blog reader (old fashioned way, I guess, but it works for me).

I know some bloggers have reduced the weekly frequency of posting, but I’m still of the belief that daily blogging is the way to go. Blogging takes a lot of time, effort, thought, and creativity, yes, so I can definitely see why bloggers scale back and publish just a few times a week, but as a reader, I much prefer seeing new content every day (even if it’s not an in-depth thought-provoking essay about life) than clicking on a blog and seeing a weeks-old post. I’ve actually stopped clicking on many of my once-favourite blogs because I don’t want to be disappointed by landing on an old post.

Maybe if I went the blog reader route, then I would not have to pay so much attention to individual blogger’s posting schedules or get click happy only to be disappointed with weeks-old content.

But I don’t. I click on posts. And I like to see something new each day. Am I asking too much? Are my expectations for the 2017 blogging world too high?

What do you think?

I’m now looking to expand my blogroll and learn about new-to-me bloggers. This is where you come in.

What are your daily/weekly must-read blogs?

What blogs do you love? Why should I love them, too?

I would be so thrilled if you shared your blog recommendations in the comments, so we can all benefit!

Thanks!

    Uh oh, I am one of those bloggers that is currently scaling back how often I post 😀 My thought process on it was after looking at my analytics, I am going to focus on less often but bring my readers more quality and more of what they want. I do know what you mean about clicking onto an un-refreshed site (one of my fave bloggers hasn’t posted since last March but I still keep checking in hopes they come back!) but since I don’t read daily, like you, I’m ok if a few days get missed.

    As for how I read blogs, I read when bloggers post a link on Facebook or when I have a free moment I have all my fave bloggers saved as favourites on my browser. I catch up over lunch or in the evening, but never daily. It’s like Netflix, I am a binge blog reader.

    Good for you for keeping up with the 5 posts a week grind! xx
