H is for HOPPING (BLOG-HOPPING, THAT IS!)

 
     Thanks to the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, I'm 'mind-bloggled' (a little blog humor there...okay, never mind) that there's so many of you out there!
     During this first week, I've discovered a new term - 'flash packing' (meaning 'affluent backpackers');  learned some Swedish to honor my ancestry at life is good, and vowed to teach myself to knit by watching YouTube videos at the suggestion of Pirate Knitting.
      What I find frustrating is the amount of blogs I like (you deserve kudos, people, for the fantastic content you're all churning out) and how to keep track of where to find them again. Just listing the blogs above took forever to find again so I could link back and mention their names. I couldn't even find one of them.
      Is there a more organized way to 'hop', to keep track of who you've visited and followed? This is relatively new to me, and that Linky list stretches for miles! Do you guys have a system?

  1. I use Feedly which is a reader app, but I know google does a reader and blogger does one too, (but that might just be for blogger blogs, I don't know). Basically you put the URLs of the blogs you want to follow and they come up in a list when they have new content. There's no way I could follow the blogs I do without one.

    1. Yeah, I do that, too! Problem is, I follow so many! I still haven't found the one I'm looking for, so maybe I didn't end up 'following' it after all.

  3. I know exactly what you mean! About every month, I try to go through my Google Reader to clean it up and try to keep it organized. It's no easy task. Good luck finding that blog!

  4. Last week my method for hopping was to read, comment and spring board from one of the other commenters. I couldn't always find a blog. This week, I am trying an OCD method...today is the 9th, I went to the linky list and am reading all multiples of 9...tomorrow it's the 10s and so on. I wish there was a category or something...like I would like to visit all the craft sites and maybe skip some of the sci-fi? I like your contribution! I will have to check out the knitting...I usually get frustrated and revert back to my crochet. Hope to see you again...definitely on the 12th (you're #144 on the linky)

    1. LOL - I like your method, too! There's just so many! I hope I can get to most all of them. I too wish they were sub-categorized, though it's at least nice to pop into as many as you can even though some may not be my favorite niche.

  5. Hi Dawn, I'm "bloggeled" too ha ha. The organizers suggested visiting the 10 blogs below yours on the linky, and that's where I started. I try to visit the next 10 the following day, but some days I haven't been making it because life has interfered.

  6. I love the term bloggled. I am so bloggled it hurts! Yeah, I'm just trying to keep up with the people/blogs I met during the platform campaign. And then I try to visit new ones from the A-Z challenge. It is quite a time commitment, but I'm learning so much good stuff that I hate to stop.

  7. I use Google Reader to read all my blogs.

    To get to all the A to Z blogs, I am just using the linky on my first post of the A to Z. Not very organized, but it works for me.

    I am trying to read all the A to Z blogs, but coming back to the ones I really like.
    Looking forward to seeing what you do all month!
