Lovin' Bloglovin'

I am sure everyone that doesn't have to work today is enjoying nice weather and a day on a boat somewhere, but I thought I'd share a little info about blog following with those of you who are stuck at work and wasting time by blog reading. Er, I mean, reading work related blogs to increase their productivity.

Anywho, there's this thing called bloglovin' that many bloggers have quickly joined and encouraged others to join. I joined it in the beginning, but kept quiet because I wasn't too sure about it. I wasn't ever into Google Reader, so I wasn't the least bit concerned about it leaving the blog world (although some people were incredibly upset).

Well, now that I have been using bloglovin' for a while, I am hooked and I want everyone I know (including you) to join in on the fun. It's basically a site where you can add all of your daily reads and it will tell you when your listed blogs have new posts or articles. It's pretty much changed my life. Before I discovered this thing, I would visit my favorite sites a bazillion times a day to see if they had anything new up yet - exhausting AND a big time waster!

There are so many features that I have yet to explorer, but one that I love is that you can categorize the blogs that you read. Another feature I'm diggin' is the little preview of each blog that you see right in your bloglovin newsfeed. I'm not someone who loves reading about giveaways (am I the only one?), so  I simply click "mark as read" when I see something about a giveaway and wait for the next post to visit my favorite blogs. No more time wasting! Also, they have a smartphone app. Yeah, I can now read my favorite blogs whenever I get a free moment wherever I am - like when both kids fall asleep in the car and I don't want to wake them up to transfer them to their beds. I can just sit in the car and entertain myself with blogs. I'm in love!
Go check it out and don't forget to add Kimchi & Sweet Tea to your bloglovin' newsfeed. You're welcome!

Have a great weekend blog friends!


  1. Well this looks awesome too. Checking it out now!! Quick question for you. When someone leaves a comment on your blog, through Disqus or whatever, when you Reply back to them, do they get an email saying you replied? No one seems to know when I reply to them. Any ideas? :(

  2. With Disqus, I (or they) should get an email. When I just had the blogger comment system, nobody would be notified unless they left an email - very frustrating. Are you having problems with your own blogging comments (you may have to adjust the Disqus comment settings) or are you having trouble with commenting on others blog posts?

  3. So great. I got an email that you replied to my comment so I guess it works! I was hearing that, before I had disqus, I would reply to people and they wouldn't be notified. This is perfect. Thanks do much for your help!

  4. Hi, a new follow from on bloglovin! I love the name of your blog. I'm 1/2 Korean. :)

  5. Thanks! I love meeting other ½ Koreans. Sounds odd typing that out, but it gives me comfort as a mom to 2 little biracial kiddos that there is a community out there that will understand any struggles they may face as halfsie kids :) Can't wait to read you blog
