When I first started subscribing to YouTubers, I would have all notifications emailed to me. It’s ritual for me to check my email, so whenever a new video was uploaded, I could click it, the link would open YouTube and I would watch to my heart’s content.
A couple months ago, I learned you can watch YouTube from select gamesystems and started to do that, instead. It eliminated the need to check my email for new videos.
Well, I kinda got hospitalized for a month due to shitty health reasons and, when I returned, came back to a fuckton of emails. Not cool.
So, now, I watch videos via subscription – or as they come out.
For blogs, I’ve followed much of the same routine. The WordPress app and I have been close for a long while, but I only ever found it useful in cases of drafting posts on the fly and responding to comments and replies.
Lately, though, I’ve been shying away from email notifications and leaning more towards using the reader – as posts come out.
Which the app makes really easy (it’s gotten much better in recent months).
And it makes me wonder how everyone else keeps up with the blogs they like to follow. Do you click through emails or peruse your reader feed? Or is there some mysterious alternate method I’ve never heard of? haha.
