Tired of checking our blog only to discover that the same old post is still sitting there? Well, here’s a quick and easy lesson on how to see if anything new has happened since your last visit.
I follow a lot of Bloggers, probably about 50 or so. They don’t post everyday nor do I check or read their blog everyday. But I can see if they have any new posts and then choose to read them when I have the time.
Look for the red arrows . . .
One of the simplest ways is to become a follower:
(Bloggers love followers!)
You may be required to open a Google Account (which is very simple) or you choose to follow ‘anonymously’.
Or you can choose to follow by email:
Since my inbox would fill up pretty quickly, this method works for me:
If you click on the orange icon on your screen a drop down menu will give you a couple of choices. I click on RSS (Really Simple Syndication).
The screen will change and in the upper left corner you should see something like this:
Click on ‘Subscribe to this feed’.
These instructions may vary, depending on what operating system you have but all I can tell you is that this is what I do and I’ve done it so often that it’s all very routine so I apologize if I’ve left something out.
You should come up with something like this:
Click on Subscribe.
Your feeds should show up on the left of your screen, however this will depend again on your individual computer settings.
The Bold Text indicates a new post on that particular blog. Then you can see who has posted and decide if and when you would like to read it.
Lastly, all bloggers love to receive comments. It lets us know that there is someone out there actually reading this.
This will show up on the bottom of each post and if you click on it you’ll be able to leave your (positive only) comments:
If you have chosen to ‘Follow Anonymously’ and wish to leave a comment, please leave your name in the message/comment box so that we know who you are.
We’re going to take this opportunity to send out a BIG THANK YOU to our current followers and to those of you that take the time to leave such wonderful comments and send your thoughtful emails. We sincerely appreciate YOU! Or if you have anything to add to this post please feel free to do so. Many of you bloggers have so much knowledge to share.
To any of our new readers please take some time to read “MY BLOG LIST” located on the bottom right side of the page. Just click on any of them and follow their travels and their wonderful writings.
