I have been a most terrible blogger I know, please don't throw your slugs onto our plot or indeed send me any more aphids in the post! haha.
As you all know the allotment is a place of therapy for me (Allotmentherapy/ Ecotherapy) but the fact is I have feel to well enough to go outside to be there and I haven't. It's complex; the Allotment is not an easy place for me, a place where my problems all disappear, often it's really tough. So as I say, I have been unable to go due to illness and therefore unable to write about it.
I shall not be stopping and thus we get to the crux of this post.. following Grow Our Own or indeed continuing to do so.
Google Reader is going bye bye forever, don't ask me why, I don't understand the need to create such a stir and confuddle all our comfort. I fear change ;) With it going we will all lose the blogs we've merrily been following through Google reader and I won't let that happen to my readers or to the blogs I love. We need to stay in touch and the way I have done this is via Bloglovin'.
It's a huge and very popular (because it's so easy to use) alternative that's been around for ages.
All you do is log on and create an account.......It will ask you if you want to import all the blogs you have been reading on Google Reader into this sparkling new account - say YES PLEASE by clicking the button :).........And ta-dah, you are done :) I'll be there and we can stay up todate, they even send you an email everyday to tell you which of your favourite blogs has put up a new post, clever.
I have even been able to put different blogs into different groups - it's an intuitive platform. And there's an App for it too, for all you super tech savy people.
This is what it looks like; very simple and clean - I'm a huge fan. So, if you haven't already it's time get a new reader, my choice is obvious Bloglovin'.
