Tell Me Something Tuesday was hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings, but she has (temporarily?) stopped blogging. So a group of us that had been doing posts (Linda from Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell, Karen from For What It’s Worth, Roberta from Offbeat YA, Jen from That’s What I’m Talking About and me) decided to get together, come up with some more topics and keep the meme going.Michelle made us a logo and we’re off and running. For more details, check out this post where I reintroduced the meme.
I can be sporadic, but when I do join in I will always share next week’s topic at the end of the post. So, today is about…
What’s your blog-hopping strategy?
Well, I suck at blog-hopping so… maybe don’t take any tips from me. My problem is time, something I hope to have more of in a couple weeks when Dante is back at daycare and I’m at the office taking an actual lunch break (right now, I don’t take a break because I have to stop so frequently to take care of Dante). My lunch break will by blog-hopping time.
Anyway, when I do have time I have two approaches:
First, I like to visit back those who have visited me. So I go through comments and check out the most recent post for each commenter.
Second, I follow several blogs on Feedly. I go through the unread posts and mark for read later the ones that peak my interest. Then I mark all read and go through my read-later posts.
There’s usually a decent amount of overlap from the commenters and Feedly bogs I follow.
That’s what it looks like when I have time. Right now, I try to read feedly posts but I don’t actually take the time to visit the actual blog and leave a comment.
