Is Bloglovin really helping bloggers, or just themselves? I’m asking this honestly…as I don’t really know. Do you?
Remember back in July when Google Reader quit and we were all forced to find another way to follow the blogs we love to read? I made the jump to Bloglovin, like so many others, but I don’t believe it’s the best fit.
One thing I liked was that everyone kept saying “When you read through Bloglovin, the page views still count for the actual blog.” Did you guys all read this too? Why is it then that as I click through to older posts in my list, the url at the top of my page still says “bloglovin.com…..”? Does the blog I’m actually reading get a view or not?
Also, there’s that handy Pin feature, right from the Bloglovin toolbar. Did you know that when you Pin from Bloglovin, the source is attributed to Bloglovin, and not the original blog??

If I have misspoken, or if you know something that changes any of what I’ve said here, please let me know! But I think I want to find a different way to follow blogs.
