I have some questions:
When you take time to visit favorite blogs, how do you read them? There are many ways to read blogs, which I’m sure you know about. If you don’t, you’ll know more after you read this post because along with the questions I’m also providing some tips.
I appreciate any feedback you’re willing to share. Also, you may notice I’ve done a bit of an overhaul on my website… I’m not finished, but the aim is to streamline and simplify. I have other news, but that will have to wait.
BTW, the photo is of me at a rink a few weeks ago, wearing a hat because it’s cold at the rink, and of course the mask which was (is) still mandated inside any building here in the Toronto area.
So let’s get started with the questions:
How do you read WordPress blog content most of the time?
- On mobile/phone
- On laptop/desktop/tablet
Do you use WordPress Reader to consume blog content?
- Most of the time
- What’s that?
Here’s how to access Reader in mobile (my phone is Android, it may look different in Apple):
Step 1 – click reader at the bottom of your screen
Step 2 – the blogs you follow appear here
Do you ever check the website of the blog you are reading, on a device that isn’t your phone?
(Do you go to writerofwordsetc.ca and look at the tabs?)
- When I’m given the link in the post I’m reading/invited to do so
Do you use the search icon to search for specific terms, categories, tags, or topics?
Search field on desktop, laptop etc… (not mobile)
Note: I added this field myself.
- I didn’t know about this but good to know
To access the search field in mobile keep reading.
Do you subscribe to receive blog posts by email?
- I would if I knew how
- I might consider it if I didn’t have to search to find out how
Here’s how: (The subscription field I placed below does not show up in Reader – so weird. It’s the same with polls, they don’t show up in Reader either. To subscribe you have to read this from the website.)
In mobile/phone, do you ever click the menu on the website address to get to the About page or other menu items?
- How do you do that?
- If I’m directed to do so
Note: you can search for topics in that location as well.
Do you use another method to follow and read blog content, such as RSS, Feedly etc?
- I don’t know what you’re talking about
Thank you for taking the time to provide me with some feedback.
See you in the comments!
