Adding a Feedly Button To Your Blog

I know everyone has migrated from Google Reader to your new chosen reader. Many of you have selected Bloglovin' as your preferred reader and have added the Bloglovin' button to your blog. 

I however, have chosen to use feedly instead of Bloglovin' as my reader. I chose this for a few reasons, but the main one was that Bloglovin' stopped working on my phone for a very long time, so I made the switch and I love feedly.
On my blog, I have both the "Follow with Bloglovin'" button as well as the "Follow with feedly" button so potential new followers have a choice. I have come across many new blogs that I want to follow, but my only choice is to follow with Bloglovin'. If I follow with Bloglovin' I never see your posts because they don't show up on my feedly feed. 

I have too many things going on to remember the names of all the new blogs to search in my feedly account. If however you have a "Follow with feedly" button I can quickly and easily start to follow your blog.

Here is the link to the feedly site to create your own Feedly button. I do have to warn you, it is not as streamline and easy as Bloglovin' but it is doable.

Anyway, this is just a suggestion, especially because I know we all watch our numbers so closely.

  1. I use feedly too and really like it. For teacher blogs, I mostly end up just adding them manually because so many only offer bloglovin options. (Which is funny, since I'm sure that feedly has much bigger numbers in the world in general).

    1. Hey Molly,
      I try to add them manually to my feed, but I don't always remember. I was just really trying to let people know that they could loose potential followers without the button. Not really sure the post made much of a difference :(
      Enjoy your week!

  2. Hi Shawna,

    I'd like to start by saying that your Blog looks great!!! My name is Martin and I'm a teacher from Canada. I just started a new website called Resources4teaching where educators can buy and sell lessons and educational resources. We are new and are looking for people to join and put up their materials for sale on our website. We are having an iPad draw for the first 100 Vendors who join and upload at least 1 lesson /resource for sale on our website. There are absolutely no fees to join and you get to keep 70% of the profit. You can visit us at: http://www.resources4teaching.com/blog/

    If you know any other teachers who might be interested in this Website, please forward this to them and if you have any questions, feel free to message me.

    Have a great day
