Blog Readers - Who uses them?

Image
Who uses blog readers? Since Google got rid of Google Reader, my blog views have slacked off and I admit I haven't been working to hard to pull anyone back again. I think I've finally found the time to concentrate on my blog readership again.

I've decided to give Bloglovin a try. Anyone out there use it? Like it? Or is it meh? Or what do you use and why?

Well, now you can Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Well, you could before too, but now I'm going to suggest that you do just that.

Three Times A Charm with N.W. Harris

Image
Welcome to Three Times A Charm. I love meeting new authors, illustrators, bloggers, agents, editors or promoters from the children’s publishing industry and sharing their careers with my readers.
Today’s guest is author, N.W. Harris. Welcome to Strands of Thought, Neil. Tell us a little about you, please.
I was born at the end of the Vietnam War and raised on a horse farm near a small town in North Georgia, my imagination evolved under the swaying pines surrounding my family’s log home. On summer days that were too hot, winter days that were too cold, and every night into the wee morning hours, I read books.
In addition to writing, I traveled the world as a submariner in the Navy, worked as a nurse, and then started a property management company. My studies have included biology and anthropology at U.C. Santa Barbara and medicine at SUNY Buffalo. I live in sunny Southern California with my wife and two children. I write like I reads, constantly.

I’m currently reading your book, Joshua’s T…

Three Times A Charm with Antje Hergt

Welcome to Three Times A Charm. I love meeting new authors, illustrators, bloggers, agents, editors or promoters from the children’s publishing industry and sharing their careers with my readers.
Today’s guest is author, Antje Hergt. Welcome to Strands of Thought, Antje. Tell us a little about you, please.
Born and raised in Germany, I came to explore the Canadian Rockies in Canmore, Alberta in 2003. Taking part in the Writing-with-Style Program at the Banff Centre for the Arts in 2007 encouraged me to follow my passion: writing for children. Darinel Dragonhunter is my first novel, which was inspired by my deep love for classic children literature and fairy tales. My thrill for science fiction/fantasy movies and television shows had an outlet in various genre short stories. I am a member of the Alberta Writer’s Guild and graduated from the Justus-Liebig-University in Giessen with a degree in Modern Languages.
Currently, I live in Germany with my snoring cat, Sally, but I miss the magic…
