    HI there, I recently started using Bloglovin and am totally not techie, don’t do social media and was daunted when I realised I was going to have to follow my faves a new way. But it has been a brilliant experience, I have all the blogs I love at one go, and I am getting to see more of what I like. so if you are thinking about – I urge you to give it a go – it really is easy.

    And you don’t even need a Facebook account to sign up… just an email address!
    I’ve been Bloglovin’ since shortly after Google Reader made their announcement, and I love it.

    I’ve heard some complaints that you can’t ‘pin’ directly from Bloglovin’ to Pinterest,…. BUT if you were in the habit of of ‘pinning’ from Reader, than that pin wasn’t linked to the blog post anyway, so you wouldn’t be able to find it again. And anyone who re-pinned it from you, didn’t have it linked to the blog post either.

    The correct way to ‘pin’ anything to Pinterest is directly from the INDIVIDUAL post on a blog (not even from the blog’s “Home” page)… you have to click on the blog post’s ‘Title” to get that posting on a page by itself with it’s ‘comment’ section. Then make your “pin” from there!
    OK… getting off my soapbox now, LOL :)
