How to search for blogs by topic!


Finally, and totally by accident, I have found how to search for blogs of a given topic, and how to collate new posts from them onto one page for easy reading.

It turns out that terms you add to your profile become LINKS, and you can click on them to search for bloggers using the same terms in the same boxes - whether it be interests, location, books, movies, industry, occupation. You are really searching for bloggers (not blogs about a given topic), but the result is essentially the same.

To search for a blog about a topic:

So just add your desired search term to your own profile as an INTEREST, then click on it. Or click on anyone else’s listed interest.

To collate new posts from followed blogs:
  1. Follow blogs of interest.
  2. If the blog you like does not have a FOLLOW button, copy the blog's URL to your clipboard
  3. Go to Dashboard (from some pages, the link says DESIGN)
  4. Go to Reading List (in left column)
  5. At BLOGS I FOLLOW click the pencil,
  6. Click ADD
  7. Paste in the URL
  8. On your DASHBOARD (also called DESIGN on some pages), click READING LIST.
  9. There they are!
