Why I Switched to Feedly for Bloghopping

One of my favorite things about blogging is the community, which is why I always make time for bloghopping (visiting other blogs & commenting on posts where I have something to say). I recently switched to Feedly for bloghopping and it literally changed my life; I want to pay it forward.

Unfortunately, my health issues have drained me of nearly all my spoons and my blog hopping has suffered. I’ve always used WordPress Reader for my hopping, which is great if you keep up with your hopping on a daily basis. The truth is, I am no longer capable of consistently hopping daily, so I needed to find an alternative to the WordPress Reader. 

Using an RSS Reader for Bloghopping

Last year I wrote a guide on how to set up RSS Readers and why you should use them. I’m a longtime RSS user for news but only recently made the move for blogs.

My Issues with WordPress Reader

Every person is different, but let’s take a brief moment to share the specific limitations that I find anxiety-inducing.

  • There is just one feed that continuously loads. Neverending pages with no end in sight = anxiety.
  • Unable to just view ‘unreads’. This is actually my biggest beef with the WP Reader: there isn’t a way to just view unread posts. My workaround was using Likes to mark posts as read. Which is fine but honestly not what the Like feature is for. This means I would scroll endlessly to find the first post in the reader that doesn’t have a like on it.
  • No way to reliably save anything for later. Sometimes I would see a post I want to read later or share it in my monthly recaps. This means more often than not I forgot to copy the URL and put it in my draft monthly review post (sorry!).

The biggest anxiety inducer for me personally is not knowing how many unreads posts I had. Sure, knowing there are 200+ that I haven’t checked out yet is daunting. For me, I find comfort in having an end goal that I can work toward. This won’t be the case for everyone.

Feedly (or another RSS Reader) Can Help!

While WordPress Reader is wonderful, especially for exploring related content, it leaves much to be desired. Especially if you want to follow non-Wordpress blogs. Yes, you can add them manually but it never seemed to work right for me. Plus with all the other issues, I needed something better. Last year, Lauren mentioned to me that she uses Feedly for hopping so I decided to give it a try.

Feedly is a news aggregator that pulls together content into one place for you to view them. The reason I am really a fan of Feedly is that it shows how many Feedly followers a blog has, in addition to checking all of my boxes! More information about what an RSS reader is in my all about RSS readers post!

📝 Related Post: How to Set Up RSS Readers and Why You Should Use Them

Big bonus: there is also a Feedly app for iOS and Android! You can add Youtube channels, news sources, anything you want, and set up different feeds accordingly.

Set Up Your Feedly Account

Feedly is super easy to set up, but if you follow a lot of blogs it will take a little bit of time to get going. But it is honestly worth the extra effort! Sign up for an account at Feedly, and then follow along with this post to get started… and know that all of the features I am talking about in this post are available in the free version.

User Settings

First, I recommend that you navigate to the settings page to customize your page. Appearance will allow you to change the font face and size for accessibility purposes. I also was able to change to a dark theme on the appearance page.

Set Up Your Feeds

I’m going to be honest: I set up my feeds based on a tier system because of my limited spoons these days. I have three tiers: Top Priority Hops (my closest friends), Extra Time Hops (blogs that comment often on my posts), and All Followed (which I still need to bring over). My reasoning is I will read everything eventually when I have the time, but breaking it up has helped my anxiety.

Importing Your Followed Blogs into Feedly

Sure you can manually add all of the blogs that you follow if you want to (see next step), but I about died when I realized you could export your OPML from WordPress Reader!

Go to Manage your Followed Sites and click on the three dots next to the search bar on the right.

Click on Export to download your OPML file

Once the file is downloaded, click on the gear icon in the Feeds area to access your Organize Sources page. From here you can select Import OPML and upload the file that you just downloaded from WordPress.

OPML Import of Blogs

Not all of them worked the first time, but I was able to refresh and get most of them added just fine. The ones that didn’t I just manually added after the fact, which was a little bit of a bummer but significantly better than doing all 170 from scratch!

Recategorize the Feeds

They were added to Uncategorized, so I had to manually move them to the correct feed still, which I did via the Organize Sources page. Sort by uncategorized, then click on the name to change the feed(s). Based on the amount of editing this is, you may choose to just manually add every one… which is the next step!

Adding New Blogs to Feeds

Once you have your feed(s) established, it is time to add the blogs! Click the + ADD CONTENT button and you can search using the blog name, URL, or the feed address (or by keyword if you want to find new blogs!).

Keyword Search and Feeds
Once you have your Feeds set up, click on Add Content to begin adding blogs!

When you find the blog you are looking for in the dropdown, click on it and select which feed(s) you want to assign it to. You can also see how many others follow on Feedly and the number of posts they put out per week on average.

Choose which feed to add the blog to

Rinse and repeat until you have all the blogs/websites added that you want!

Hopping Via Feedly

You can go into a specific feed or an aggregate of all of them depending on time. The screenshots below are based on the All page, and the feeds go back a month. You can change the order from oldest to newest in settings.

All Unreads
Once you visit a post, it will be marked as read and will no longer be shown as bold.

When you click on a title that interests you, a window pops up with the full post content and a lot of social sharing options at the top.

You won’t be able to interact with the post in the reader. Be sure to click the post title or the “visit website” button at the bottom to visit the post directly in a new tab (give them a view), like, and/or leave a  comment.

You can mark a post as read if you are not interested in reading it by hovering your cursor on the right of the post and clicking on the ‘x’ that appears.

I love that I can essentially leave posts unread here for a month until I get to them. And if you need more time, click the little bookmark icon to add it to your Save for Later feed.

Boards 

Boards are places where you can save various posts together in one place. Right now I only have one for Excellent Resources, but I will add a monthly link round-up board!

Never lose a resource again

Click the star icon to add a post to your board(s)! Never lose track of those awesome resources again and save the internet browser folders/bookmarks for another day!

✨✨✨

And there you have it: how Feedly has honestly saved my bloghopping life! What are your thoughts? How do you organize your bloghopping?

    This post is a lifesaver. I’ve been wanting to organize my blog-hopping now that I know my life is going to get hectic again once school starts up, and this seems like the perfect solution! The endless loading in the WordPress Reader’s also been bothering me. It hasn’t before, but the more blogs I follow, the more it’s been taunting me! It’s already past midnight where I am, so I’m bookmarking this for tomorrow morning. Also I’m very amused seeing my own blog up here. 😂

    Thank you for another amazing blogging tip, Kal! 😍

      Lovely guide, Kaleena 😊 I started using Feedly last year but stopped after some time because life.. I am so bad in blog hopping these days and I really need to up my game again. I think now’s the time to use that Feedly guide again 😊

      1. Kal

        July 28, 2019 at 5:41 PM

        Thank you so much, Sim! I think a lot of us struggle at one point or another with hopping, and it is totally okay. Hopefully Feedly will help you prioritize a bit though for when you have the time.

      July 28, 2019 at 5:22 PM

      Honestly, Feedly is great for when you don’t have a lot of time because of so much flexibility and customization. For me, the endless scrolling on WP Reader causes so much anxiety now??? Sure, I still let things pile up but I like knowing what that number is and watching it go down as I chip away. (And hahaha, you are famous!)

    I can honestly say that after following this post and testing out feedly for myself for a few weeks now–it’s a total game changer. I no longer feel stressed and anxiety ridden about my WP Reader and blog hopping, because I’m no longer following it. Literally, it feels like a thousand ton brick was lifted off my shoulder. Feedly is amazing and I 10/10 back this post to the fullest. AMAZING POST KAL! I CANT EXPRESS THIS SENTIMENT ENOUGH!

    1. Kal

      July 28, 2019 at 5:31 PM

      HARD SAME, friend! I even haven’t hopped for two weeks and my unreads have piled up and I don’t feel stressed out about it at ALL. Okay, maybe a little but that’s just the guilt. I am so glad this helped you, too!

    July 17, 2019 at 12:00 PM

    Thank you for this post! I will be using it to organise my blog hopping! I also want WordPress reader to be able to organise by unread posts. I find it to be overwhelming the amount of unread posts so hopefully feedly will be able to help me. I actually have a feedly account but never really understood it and this post has made me understand it better.
    Great post!

    1. Kal

      July 28, 2019 at 5:34 PM

      You are so welcome, and I hope that Feedly changes your blog hopping game like it did for me! I also had an account for like a year before I decided to really dive into it and see if it could help. Wish I didn’t wait so long!

    Well I might give this a try too if it helps being better organized and less stressed!

    I’ve never really used my WP reader it was just…not practical or functional for me I guess. I just felt like I’d never reach the end of it. I like ends. It makes me feel accomplished and helps give me a lift. So now I’m gonna waddle to sort out my blog hopping game because I really want to step it up *sobs* also it means I can control feeds and organise things which pleases me muchly, thank you so much for this post Kal. You are a gem, a lifesaver, Queen *bows*

    1. Kal

      July 28, 2019 at 5:37 PM

      Hard same, my friend. I like ends, and watching numbers go down as I widdle the list down. I know some people may see 300+ posts and freak out, but for me I like knowing, easily, how many. I hope this helps you, I love how much control feedly offers you!

    I found out about Feedly from another blogger, and it was love at first click. It’s so much easier, than getting a million emails or going through multiple feeds. I’m a fan

    1. Kal

      July 28, 2019 at 5:39 PM

      LOVE AT FIRST CLICK IS PERFECT! It is so much easier, and ugh I hate subscribing to blogs by email so much… that gave me so much anxiety.

  7. Sophie @ Blame Chocolate

    July 18, 2019 at 12:25 AM

    Oh this is tremendiously helpful, Kal!!! Thanks so much for sharing, I about die with anxiety every time I realize I have 100+ posts to read and no way to organise them properly – usually results in wasted time, long hours figuring things out, missing all my important faves, and struggling to make ends meet.
    This will certainly improve my mental well-being and blog hopping from now on 🙂 THANK YOU AGAIN <3 <3 <3

    1. Kal

      July 28, 2019 at 5:42 PM

      The WP reader honestly was so bad my for mental health, and is why I stopped hopping altogether because it is really bad if you can’t keep up with it daily. Feedly really has made hopping so much better for me, and on my own time, without having to scroll endlessly to find an unread post.

    Kal, Kal, Kal, this is truly truly amazing!!! Thank you so much 😁😁 You have brought back order and balance into my life?? And the fact that I can use the mobile app too? 👌👌 TRULY a WONDROUS post, thank you so so much for explaining how to do everything!

    1. Kal

      July 28, 2019 at 5:43 PM

        1. Kal

          August 2, 2019 at 8:20 PM

    I started using Feedly, because it’s perfect for me to obtain horror & video game news (& I follow you & Destiny via it), but this guide DEFINITELY is a game-changer. I’m going to be following along, so I can do ALL of my blog-hopping on there!

    1. Kal

      July 28, 2019 at 5:47 PM

      AWWW I am so honored! Also you remind me that I need to add a few news sources onto a news feed so I can at some point get back to knowing what is going on in the world.

    July 18, 2019 at 8:42 AM

    Thanks again SO much for introducing me to Feedly, Kal! I used only the WP reader before, and used Likes to keep track of what I last read, which wasn’t the most practical approach. I love how Feedly allows me to make posts as read, create boards, and create feeds! It’s a life saver! ❤️

    1. Kal

      July 28, 2019 at 5:48 PM

      You are most welcome, I am so glad this helped you! My WP Reader method for hopping was the same as yours, and while it worked fine if I hopped daily, it did NOT when I stopped having the spoons for daily hopping.

    July 18, 2019 at 3:55 PM

    I have also switched over to feedly and use it to keep track of my favourite blogs. It’s really helpful, especially as fewer new blogs seem to be getting bloglovin which is what I usually use to keep track of all my blog posts.

    1. Kal

      July 28, 2019 at 5:55 PM

      I never really used Bloglovin, for some reason I didn’t like the UI so I used WP Reader instead… which has a lot of issues hahaha.

    *pat pat* Kal you’re doing great and as always, you’re a wonderful queen. *sneaks crown on you*

    I personally don’t use Feedly, but I HATEEEEEEE WordPress Readeer for all the reasons you’ve mentioned. Did I read this post already? Have I commented already? Which blogs have I visited lately? OMG, which one was I interested in reading after work?

    1. Kal

      July 28, 2019 at 5:56 PM

      Soph, I love you so much! I don’t think you know how much your “you’re doing great” messages over the last couple of months has helped me. Thank you.

      WordPress Reader not great. At all. It may be the worst RSS reader I have ever seen.

    Oh Kal this is such an incredible blog post, definitely bookmarking this and saving it for later to check it out. I’m using at the moment a mix of the wordpress readers and bookmarks that I have, but it seems so, so organized and useful to do this via Feedly and to organize all of the blogs I want to read, too. Thank you so much for sharing this 🙂

    1. Kal

      July 28, 2019 at 6:18 PM

      Aww, Feedly will probably be a lot easier for you because everything will be in one place! You’re most welcome, and I hope it is as useful for you as it is for me.

    I feel like this is something I need to do to really focus on my bloghopping… I really suck at it atm but I also know I can’t feasibly do any more than what I am doing with all of my commitments. Congrats on finding a way that doesn’t make the anxiety worse. It’s always a winner when you can do that!

    1. Kal

      July 28, 2019 at 6:22 PM

      You are doing the best that you can, and that’s enough! Hopefully Feedly or something similar will help you out a bit, I find it to be a lot faster as well.

    Awesome guide as usual, Kal! 💕

    I do still use wordpress reader once in a while- but mostly go for discord’s share posts or bloglovin’, exactly for the same reasons as you! Though not much for my anxiety, I like to be able to save posts into either « blogging help » or devided for future Bujo posts so I can come back and link back to all thoses neat posts I loved through the month!

    1. Kal

      July 28, 2019 at 6:30 PM

      Thank you, Kristina!

      Honestly, I used WP Reader for so long it is kind of a hard habit to break? I def have been hopping more frequently via share posts on discord lately and then on Feedly when I have the energy for extra hopping!

    July 20, 2019 at 5:00 PM

    I need to get back into Feedly. I’ve used it off and on, but never made boards or made much use of the “save for later” feature. That might help. I rarely blog hop at ALL (for spoon reasons) and I feel a little guilty about that sometimes. This might get me back in the habit. Great post!

    1. Kal

      July 28, 2019 at 6:38 PM

      I know what you mean about spoon reasons, and that is why Feedly has been so transformative for me! I still feel guilty but at least now I am not a ball of anxiety about ~how many posts behind am I?~, which makes a difference. you are doing your best though, so don’t beat yourself up over it!

    I have been SO SHORT on spoons recently and holy smokes, Kal, I think you just saved my hide. This looks like the perfect solution to catching up on hopping, and I think once I have half a moment to breathe, I’m going to set one up and give it a whirl.

    Please keep being a helpful genius because it’s AMAZING.

    1. Kal

      July 28, 2019 at 6:55 PM

      As a person with so few spoons these days, Feedly has helped me so much! I still have guilt associated with getting behind with hopping but I no longer have the added caveat of “if I don’t hop today my reader is going to be a disaster and life will be hell” on top of it. I hope it helps you, too!

      1. Meaghan @ Words Gremlin

        July 28, 2019 at 7:39 PM

        Right. If it takes away at least one stressful aspect, that’s always a good thing. I think I’m going to try setting it up this week and go from there!

  27. May @ Forever and Everly

    July 21, 2019 at 11:36 PM

    Aahh, I love this so much, Kal! I relate a lot to using likes as a way to mark posts as read and then scrolling back all the way down to the ones I haven’t liked (and it’s very daunting and overwhelming to see how far I have to scroll back sometimes). I’m not sure if I’ll be able to adjust to Feedly, not because it doesn’t sound amazing but change is always anxiety-inducing for me haha. But I will definitely try it out when I have the time, because hearing that it solved your problems when I share so many of the same problems is very motivating!!

    1. Kal

      July 28, 2019 at 7:06 PM

      I know what you mean about change, I am the same way! I made the transition slowly, and I think it was more of a fact that WP Reader was causing so much anxiety that change was less scary. I actually set up my account a year ago, but didn’t really give it a try until a little over a month ago. Maybe set up an account and see how you feel? If it doesn’t work for you that’s fine and you can keep going with WP Reader!

        😂😂😂 I was very overwhelmed… this is why catching up on blog-hopping was 1st on my tidyathon goals. I’m seriously at the point where I’m going to have to turn it off though as if I miss a day I’m done for. Also, I had a huge problem transferring the blogs to Feedly. It only moved across the non-Wordpress ones. I can’t seem to do anything for the others except move them across one by one. 😭😭😭

          August 2, 2019 at 8:18 PM

          I had similar issues with the import not working 100%, which was kind of annoying, but I just manually added everyone. It took about the same time as it did to change the category. :/ Not ideal but I think it’s worth it!

    July 22, 2019 at 12:05 PM

    Oh my gosh, I needed this. The WordPress reader has been causing me so much anxiety lately because I just can never catch up; some days, I don’t have time to blog hop and then the posts just mount up so quickly! I’m definitely going to try this 😍

    1. Kal

      July 28, 2019 at 7:09 PM

      I was in the same boat, once I was no longer able to hop daily WP Reader stopped being a good tool for me. I hope that Feedly will help you as much as it did me, Alex!

    Whoaa– this is SUCH a cool post and I really love it!! I’ve seen Feedly floating around, but I had no idea there was an option to only see your unread posts? That’s honestly AMAZING for me to catch up on unread posts, and I love the fact that you can save posts to shout out in your monthly recap; I definitely want to use that feature. Thank you for this post! <3

      Ahhh thank you so much, Juliana!!! I honestly had no idea the various ways I could improve and streamline my blogging game beyond just hopping with Feedly, but the save boards are amazing and so useful. Seriously the ability to see only your unreads was lifechanging for me!

    This post came at a perfect time! I’m back from a year long hiatus and back then, I always used Bloglovin! But since coming back I’ve noticed that a lot of bloggers don’t have their blogs linked to Bloglovin (and bloglovin went COMPLETELY down last week so I couldn’t blog hop at all). Long story short, I’ve been looking for a new way to follow blogs! I am also not a huge fan of the WordPress feed. Thanks for the helpful post!

      Welcome back, and I am glad you found the post when you did! It def does seem like a lot of newer bloggers aren’t using Bloglovin, and I heard about it going down last week. (I take it that it’s working now?!) I hope Feedly works out for you!
