How do you organize blogs you follow?

I so wish there was a way in blogger to have blogs that I follow categorized...categories I would have would include Crafty, Frugal/Freebies, Giveaways, Family, etc...I follow hundreds of blogs and I know I miss loads of great posts because they all are just in one huge flow! Sure I scan down them all and try to hit up all the ones I want but gosh I know I miss LOADS...

So do you have any particular way you manage to catch up on all your fave blogs? Do you have a way to categorize?

I guess I could always create folders in my faves on computer and have them saved there for quick reference but it would just be so nice if Blogger offered that option!

  2. Hey Steph, have you ever considered Google Reader? I just started using it earlier this year (I was against it for a long time), but it really does make things easier...then you can organize your blog folders however you want (I have 'blogs of people i know'-meaning my favs/people like you-design blogs, scrap blogs, photography blogs, mama blogs, etc) Just an idea.

    The only really sucky thing about it is that you can't see the blogs themselves, just the text and pics (sometimes, sometimes not even), so you have to click on it if you want to go to the blog and comment or see the blog design, etc.

    Anyway, just an idea, not sure how you would do it in Blogger, but I'm sure you could Google it to find a way! :)
