Why I love email subscription


So I’m pretty excited to share that it is now possible to subscribe to my blog via email (sidebar!). I’m excited because it’s something I’ve been meaning to do for a while now and I’ve finally figured it out.

When I first started discovering all my favorite book blogs, I subscribed to their RSS feeds to read their latest posts on my phone with an app called Feedly. Because I’d subscribed to so many blogs, this was the simplest way to be sure I wasn’t missing anything. Everything was all in one place. (This is quite similar to Bloglovin, but until very recently I didn’t even know that existed!)

But if I neglected to check my app, the posts would pile up and I’d forget to read them. That’s when I began subscribing via email. I check my email regularly, as it’s necessary for both school/work. So when I was notified of a new post, I was much more likely to read it (or at least skim it).

I believe email subscription is efficient. One of my 2015 resolutions is to continue building relationships with other book bloggers, and keeping up with their posts is one of the best ways to accomplish this.

You tell me – how do you keep up with your favorite blogs? RSS feed? Email subscription? Bloglovin? Is there something I’ve missed? I’d really appreciate your feedback!

*If you’ve subscribed to my blog, thank you thank you! And be sure to introduce yourself, if you haven’t already!*

    I LOVE bloglovin’! Im so glad I found it because it’s my number one way to subscribe to blogs these days! I used to read through the blogger roll, but then I couldn’t ever remember to keep up with WordPress blogs. I’m actually a bit odd when it comes to email subscriptions. I only follow about 3 blogs via email. *shrugs* I’d just rather head to bloglovin’, I guess! But still, it’s the best thing to have the option to follow ALL THE WAYS, right?! You can appeal to anyone who wants to follow! ^_^ Good on you!

      Thanks Cait! I’m really glad I’ve discovered bloglovin’, and that it comes so highly recommended. 🙂 I’ve gone totally crazy re-subscribing to all my favorite book blogs (there are so many!). AND I’ve just realized bloglovin’ emails me my daily feed, which is really great. I learn something new every day! But you’re right – everyone’s different and it’s best to offer every option!
