Has a clean design interface, searching for new content is easy
A lot of the popular content is pretty old, some popular categories seem to be missing
You might have thought blogging has hit its peak already, and to be honest, I’d likely agree with you. However, following a good blog will always be relevant in some capacity and Bloglovin’ for Android is an app that will help you discover new blogs and keep track of all your favorites.
You can kind of think of this as Feedly for blogs. It’s an app that you’ll use to consume all of your blog content, and hopefully find new blogs that might interest you. You’ll have to create an account in order to gain access to the app, but once you’re inside you’ll get set up with your homepage. At first it’s blank, but soon you’ll have it totally filled to the brim with content.
The first thing you’ll want to do is find that content. You can do this one of two ways: searching through popular posts or top blogs and searching for your favorite blogs directly. Searching for blogs is kind of a pain because a lot of the blogs are lumped together under several different categories, and sometimes you won’t be able to find the category you’re looking for at all. I’m looking at you, games.
Once you’ve found some blogs you can check out their blog in your browser or simply start following them. Following a blog will allow it to start sending its posts to the feed on your homepage.
I like the idea of Bloglovin’ but I’m not a fan. A lot of the top blogs haven’t been posted in for quite some time, and just about all of the popular posts are generic click-bait posts about becoming more popular on the internet. In essence, it’s a blog app to read other blogger’s blogs so you can eventually be the blogger new bloggers are reading about. Yep, one giant circlejerk.
