So after going back and forth (and then back and forth a couple more times) between making a Bloglovin account and not making one, I decided to go for it!
Bloglovin is a platform for bloggers and blog lovers. If you have a number of blogs you like to read you can make an account and get all the blog updates in one area instead of having an overload of e-mails from blog subscriptions.
Plus Bloglovin reccommends blogs it thinks you might enjoy so you can find more blogs you love. If you have a blog you can make an account and “claim” your blog and view your stats there. Plus find more bloggers and readers.

I’m the type of person who doesn’t like having a lot of accounts. I wasn’t sure if this was going to help my blog. Was I just going to end up having another account that was unnecessary and one I wouldn’t really use? Plus with wordpress I already have the wordpress reader where I get updates on the blogs I follow. Do I really need another place for this?
While it’s true that the wordpress reader provides me with updates to blogs I subscribed to, I feel like it holds me back from finding blogs that aren’t made with wordpress. Maybe that’s just me. But I feel like because a lot of people from different blog platforms use bloglovin I’ll be able to diversify the blogs I follow. (which is actually one of my blog resolutions of 2016) So I think it will help in that sense and a great plus is it will help -I’m hoping- get traffic to my blog.
Get what I’m trying to say?
so in order to claim your blog on bloglovin and start using it as a blogger you have to make a blog post with a link they send you:
Follow my blog with Bloglovin
(and now I can claim my blog)
