It’s Wednesday so that means it’s question time. It’s time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We’d all like that.
Here’s this weeks question: Most of us have a reader to keep track of our favorite blogs. Some use Feedly and some use Bloglovin. How many subscriptions do you have in your reader and which reader do you use?
I have 105 subscriptions in my reader and I use Feedly.

I use bloglovin, but I only read yours, Bee's, Sandy's and Jean's blogs now. Back when I blogged I had over 200 blogs that I read daily. Wow, things sure have evolved, huh? It's all Facebook now and other social media, of course — but it's just Facebook for me. I wonder what the next "big thing" will be?
Have yourself a funtabulous day hon! xoxo
Most everyone seems to be gravitating to Facebook. I'm still not a fan, but I'm ever so glad you visit me often. 🙂
A big thank you from me too Jean(ie)
I use Feedly and I had no idea how many subscriptions I had so I had to go look. I have 142 but a lot of those no longer post. Some (craft related blogs) I only read if what they post interests me. Some I read but don't comment and then there is a group of 20 or so blogs that I read and comment on. I guess you know which group you're in 🙂
I guess you know which group you're in too. 🙂
Um, i just have a list on Blogger of blogs i follow. It's long, but i haven't taken the time to count.
I like Feedly. I lets me know when someone posts new content. I guess I could use the blogger one too, but I just don't. 🙂
I use Bloglovin' but only for a few blogs, I follow most with Blogger. 🙂
It's interesting to see what everyone else does or doesn't do. 🙂
This may come as a shock, but I have no subscriptions and no reader. I only follow a couple of blogs. Obviously you're at the top of my very short list.
Well, that is an easy way to do it. It takes time and patience to cultivate a bunch of blogging buddies. 🙂
I don't subscribe to any blogs but I have that widget on my blog that shows me when other bloggers I have linked to my blog have a new post. I've got 17 in that feature and wish I could find a few more. I love blogs!
I had that widget at one time, but I change my template and then it was gone. Bugger. 🙂
I don't have a reader. I just read the blogs of those who comment mine. If I want to go find new blogs, I use a list like the IWSG signup or click over to blogs of people who comment the blogs I read. I found following blogs just had me reading blogs of people who stopped reading mine a year ago!
If I did that I would not have as many visits each day. It's amazing the folks that never show up at your place although you go to theirs. 🙂
I have no idea what you're talking about. I just follow any blog I check into. What the heck is Feedly and Bloglovin? Oh well, I know where yours and Bee's are.
Have a wonderful Wednesday Sandee. See ya.
You don't need them Paul. You're doing just fine the way you're blogging. 🙂
I just have a list of blogs I subscribe to and that is just on blogger Then I know when some one has posted and some I subscribe by email. I do have regulars that I do every day..
Sandee, you and Zane and Little Bit have a grand day.
We each have our own way of doing other blogs. 🙂
I use Feedburner I don't really look in it much but just logged in and it says I have 77 subscribers which I would have never known if I hadn't read your question LOL =D>
Have a feedtastic day Sandee g-)
Me too, but I rarely visit there either. Hadn't even thought about Feedburner. 🙂
bloglovin, and I follow way too many people. I only check it about twice a week. I do most everything on Facebook now
I do too, but I do weed the ones out that never visit or post new content at some point. 🙂
I use the Google friend connect so I can see the blogs on my blogger dashboard 🙂 I'm following 198 blogs right now 🙂
Well, that's another good way to keep track. I hadn't thought of that either. 🙂
I do follow some blogs including yours. Except yours, I don't read other blogs regularly. I don't understand the rest of your questions.
It really doesn't matter if you don't have a reader. I just wanted to see what others were doing. 🙂
I have two lists 20 in one and 75! in another…good grief. I noticed this morning as I counted that some of the blogs have not posted in over a year…hmmm guess I should remove them. Plus some that I visit every day ( like yours) I don't even have in my lists. Guess I need to do some serious tidying up,
I just put in those lists using blogger. Obviously some time back. But I do check the current entries from time to time.
So- did you enjoy your birthday?? Smiles!
Yes, I enjoyed my birthday very much. It was a most wonderful day and hubby made it extra special. 🙂
I use Bloglovin. I subscribe to many blogs, but really read only a few (like Barb). I click through if something grabs me on the other blogs.
I spend way too much time everyday. Oh well, it keeps me off the street. 🙂
Something called QuiteRSS which allows them to be grouped and organized. Comedy Plus is right up there in a very important category.
Count? Looks like 64 active and 20 in hibernation. Which reminds me:
How is blogging like keeping a pet crocodile?
You have to feed both of them every day.
I've never heard of QuiteRSS until now. I had to go look it up. 🙂
I absolutely HATE readers but I have Bloglovin' just to give people followers there.
I follow well over 200 blogs and guess where I have all of my subscriptions go? MY EMAIL….so, that's why it takes me so long to get through my email.
I prefer following by email because then the blog posts are right in my face and I read them as I go through my email.
If I had to go to a reader to read them all, I NEVER would.
If a blog doesn't have "follow by email" as an option on their sidebar, they lose ME as a follower
I've always had feedburner on my sidebar. I'm glad I do because of you. 🙂
I just use Blogger's reader list. I tried to visit as often as I can especially those who comments on my blog.
You do very well with me Nancy. I visit you every time you post new content too. 🙂
LOL, I don't use a reader, well, I am signed up with Bloglovin just that's just to give others a chance to follow there if they choose. I just the old fashioned blog roll from blogger. I'll admit it, I'm a control freak and don't want to be inundated with new posts. I want to be able to scroll down the entire list quickly and see a snapshot and title of everyone's posts.
That's a nice looking widget too. I should repopulate that. 🙂
I have bookmarked my favorites and some are on the sidebar of my blog …along with some I haven't gotten around to deleting yet.
Whatever works is the ticket. 🙂
I just use the list on the side of our blog plus go to some others that aren't on there. I also try to comment on those who comment on our posts. I'm not very organized!
I'm glad you had a wonderful birthday yesterday! Wishing you many more! Smooches to Little Bit!
You're a good blogger and a good friend and I love your two babies tons. 🙂
I follow about 1 billion blogs and have no freaking idea how I do! If they keep coming back to mine, I try as hard as I can to stay up to date with theirs!
Well, if you're getting it done then that's all that matters. 🙂
Afraid I don't use a reader—guess this old man will remain behind the times.
You're not the only one that doesn't use a reader. The Google reader was ever so popular and then it went away. 🙂
Nada … If you look at my sidebar I have listed the blogs I visit in three sections. I start at the bottom where I left off the day before and work my way up. c-)
You're so organized Odie. I've always known that though. 🙂
I'm not familiar with those websites. I follow blogs on my own. I'm going to look into them and see if they'll help my traffic.
They are helpful in knowing who has posted new content. Some folks only post once a week and there isn't much since taking the time to visit them if they don't have a new post. 🙂
I don't use any. I just go around to the blogs I like.
That's a great way actually. You have those you most care about in your circle. I'm glad that I'm one of them. 🙂
So am I!
Thanks Binky. 🙂
Sorry I am so late, but thanks to my reader, I never miss a thing. I use Feedly, and have several categories on there. You are in the "daily reads" which I try to get to every day, but I never clear it when I am backed up without reading it all (like today).
I should do categories too. Perhaps I will. 🙂
I have a Bloglovin account but haven't used it in ages. I don't know how many blogs are on there. Looks like you have a lot. Thanks for following me. xoxo
