My Love For Feedly

January 22, 2018

When Google Reader was dropped a few years ago I did go into a bit of  a panic. How would I keep up with all those great blogs and websites that I read? I tried many news apps but neither of them worked for me, that is because back then I was using a Windows phone and decent apps were scarce. The someone told me about Feedly and the rest was history.

Feedly was created in 2006 by Edwin Khodabakchian but in the name of DevHD with the aim of creating a platform that uses RSS feeds, online storage, and social media integration to connect users with the information they find interesting.

What can I say about Feedly? It is more than a news feed; it is a life saver. When I first started using it I was able to transfer all my feeds from Google Reader very easily. It is also very flexible and shareable – I have it loaded on my laptop, tablet and mobile plus I can send posts to friends and family.

You can easily add the blog and website that you want to follow and put them into different categories. You can search for posts in different ways, from the date, categories that you have created and also view the most popular posts. You also have the option to choose how you wish your feeds to be laid out. Whether it’s bullet points, magazine style or visually led. The choice is all yours.

Apart from this Feedly has tons of other features that you can pay a monthly fee for by upgrading to the Pro or Teams version.

      Feedly really helps to keep all your blogs in one place. Well worth investigating.

    I’ve never heard of Feedly before so I might have to check it out. Is it like Bloglovin’?

      Kind of, except not as fancy. Bloglovin is more of a blogging community where you can follow your favourite blogs where Feedly is just a nice news feed.
