I love reading about fashion, beauty and lifestyle contents, but I was not keen on reading blogs, because I found it hard to keep up with all the bloggers on different platforms, and it’s just not as convenient as browsing on Youtube or Buzzfeed, which I can easily do on my mobile. However, all has been changed, since I was introduced to Bloglovin’.
Bloglovin’ is a platform that allows users to read, organize, and discover their favorite blogs on mobile and desktop. It is a design-focused platform that aggregates feeds from sources with RSS feeds, allowing users to discover and organize content. It is funded in 2007, but it started to gain popularity from 2011 and onwards, along with the rise of the lifestyle crowd and “beauty guru” on Youtube.
Basically, the site offers a interconnecting platform between blogs and blog readers. Bloglovin shares many of the social-network-for-blogging tools that are familiar from Tumblr, but it can be used to read any blog site as well as larger news sites, too. The one thing it doesn’t do is host blogs itself.
The downside of Bloglovin is that due to the contents on the site, most of its audience is female, “‘Fifteen non-alcoholic summer drinks’ was one of the most popular articles we ever had”, said the Bloglovin CEO, so it’s not necessarily, a site that’s suitable for all. Nonetheless, if you have an interest on such contents, Bloglovin will be a great all-in-one site to visit form web to all your mobile devices.
