One of my favorite blogs lately to read just moved off of blogger. I have had other blogs that I read that have moved and I haven't been concerned with trying to find them (it's usually easy, they give you their new address) or tried to figure out how to follow them. I like typing in blogger.com and just going to the bottom of my news feed (that I've read) and reading up. I don't have to go to a separate sight to read all my blogs and then come back here to write my blog. However, I really like Gwen and didn't want to stop following her because she has abandoned blogger for the greener pastures of wordpress. So, I decided to try out bloglovin.com. I already had an account there, I got one when blogger quit their reader site (don't remember what it was, I never went to it)(Google reader??) because I was worried that I would have problems if I didn't sign up for another reader site. Silly me, I didn't use Google reader, and now I don't use bloglovin. I just go to my blogger dashboard and read my blogs. It's worked for 2 years now, I don't see how it wouldn't continue working.
Except Gwen switched sites on me and I like her blog, a lot. So yesterday I spent the day trying to figure out bloglovin, so I can continue to follow her. When I moved my stuff from Google reader to bloglovin, somehow, magically, all the blogs I followed ended up over there, however, I have added quite a few new ones and I had to find each of those and add them to bloglovin. What a pain in the ass.
Luckily (or not so luckily) I was sick yesterday, so I spent all day on the couch. I had plenty of time to figure it out (I didn't, I played a game). I did manage to add (hopefully) all my blogs to bloglovin. I do like that I can just click "next" at the top and go to the next blog on my list without having to go back to the main page. But, I discovered this morning, that once I read them, they disappear. I wanted to go back to look at some I read yesterday, and I don't know where they went. I mean, I can go to each individual person's blog, but . . . what if I don't remember which blog it was on? (I was way, way, way behind in my reading.) And then I saw one today that I forgot to add yesterday, Kelly is hilarious, so I'm glad I realized my mistake. Now I just have to remember to go there so that I can see Gwen's posts (she's the only one I follow that is not on blogger).
As I mentioned above, I was sick this weekend. Just yesterday, although I can tell my stomach isn't very happy this morning (maybe the second cup of coffee was a bad idea). Silly me decided on Saturday to not run. I was lazy, and had run on Thursday and Friday and was planning to run on Sunday, so I thought a rest day would be okay, especially since my foot has been bothering me a little. Then on Sunday I had one cup of coffee and spent the rest of the day in the bathroom. It wasn't fun. No long run (or any run) again for the 3rd weekend in a row. Ugh!
post about my first "run" if you're interested. And here is my one year runiversary post, which explains where my love of running comes from.
