I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how the ways in which blog readers stay up-to-date on their favorite blogs has changed over time. At the same time, I know that people are creatures of habit so there are still many people who are probably keeping up with their favorite blog the same way they have been for years.
For me it has definitely changed in some ways and stayed the same in others. For domain name news (which I still read daily) I still go to Domaining.com, it has been my go-to for years and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. I also read blogs written by some of my favorite VC’s like Mark Suster and Brad Feld and I subscribe to those via email.
Then there’s the tech blogs like Techcrunch and Gizmodo, and for some reason I don’t subscribe via email to those, instead I just tend to direct nav to those sites myself. I also read a fair amount of content on Medium which I usually discover through Twitter.
I wish I could say I had a “normal” way that I read all the blog content that I consume in a week, but as you can see from what I wrote above, I have developed my own systems that seem to vary based on the subject area. I still can’t quite determine how things ended up this way, I just know that like most other people – I’m a creature of habit and these are my habits.
All this being said, I’m always interested in understanding how other people read blogs and keep up with their favorite writers so I wanted to send this question back to you, my blog readers. How do you keep up with your favorite blogs?
